Over 45 years of excellence in plant hire

Flannery Plant Hire (OVAL) Ltd was incorporated in 1972 by Patrick Flannery. From the original base adjacent to the Oval cricket ground, the business has grown rapidly. Now Flannery Plant Hire operates from a purpose-built Head Office next to Wembley Stadium, with a network of six depots in Newport, Birmingham, Manchester, Northumberland, Aberdeen and Dublin. 

A family business, people stand at the centre of the Flannery proposition, providing excellence in service, plant standards and safety. By listening to clients’ specific requirements, keeping abreast of the latest legislation and maintaining a relentless level of investment, the company has an unrivalled record of delivering quality and value. 

This investment drives our sustainable credentials; a modern fleet in excess of 3,500 units, over 50-delivery vehicles and 80 fitters covering sites across the UK 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year. 

As our respected manufacturers continue to develop technology, Flannery continues to innovate, finding ways to turn data into meaningful analysis allowing customers to make hire decisions that deliver the most effective and reliable solution for them. 

We’ve come a long way since 1972…
