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.
