Solway Plant Hire Ltd - About us


Solway Plant Hire is an excellent example of an innovative, well run business that has seen steady growth since it started out twenty years ago.

Located at Horsecrook on Port Road, Dalbeattie, in Dumfries and Galloway, Solway Plant Hire began life working for construction companies with just a single JCB 3CX. It quickly added to the only machine and branched out to private hire although continuing its strong working ties with the construction industry. Ambitious but careful management produced steady growth in business and plant over the following years. Servicing it's own machinery helped keep costs and downtime to their lowest.

Now the company employs more than twenty staff, has it's own full time office and is experienced in a wide range of work including landfill sites, windfarms and large muck shifts. Larger, 20 to 50 tonne, excavators, articulated dump truck and low ground pressure dozers have all been brought in over the years and a large stock of attachments make Solway Plant Hire a major player in hydraulic attachments in south west Scotland. Tipper and skip lorries plus a low loader to shift plant are all part of the business.

Staff are full CPCS trained and all plant is certified in accordance to lifting Regs 1998.
