Welcome to Mackay Plant Hire


Mackay Plant Hire was formed in December 1997, by Gordon Mackay, Penny Mackay and Jon Macaulay.
The three directors between them have over 100 years’ experience in all aspects of the plant hire industry.

Mackay Plant Hire started trading from a rented piece of land, a cabin and a spare bedroom in the Mackay household. The rented land was soon extended and workshops erected. The spare bedroom was replaced by a converted garage. This combination served well, until in August 2014 a new Workshop/Office combination was purchased, with ample space to accommodate the large fleet of equipment.

Mackay Plant Hire is proud to have a comprehensive selection of equipment, renewed on a regular basis, keeping the majority of machines under manufacturer’s warranty. The service team, both in the workshop and field, are trained to the highest standard. All equipment is serviced/inspected on a regular basis, thus reducing valuable downtime on site.

Our professional approach to all aspects of the business shines through. Nothing is ever too much trouble to maintain customer satisfaction.


Quality Equipment……On Time, Every Time!
