Pickerings Celebrate 50th Anniversary

posted: 3rd Apr 2019

Pickerings, the fastest growing supplier of modular buildings and portable accommodation to hire or buy, is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The company was founded in 1969 as Pickerings Plant to supply plant hire equipment to the construction and industrial sectors and quickly became well known for providing high quality products and services. Over the years it saw an unprecedented demand from its customers for a growing and varied range of portable accommodation and modular buildings and began to dispose of its plant hire equipment. The company changed its name in 2018 to Pickerings Hire and continued to trade as Pickerings concentrating on developing its portable and modular accommodation for a growing database. As well as taking on larger projects it has also entered into new markets such as government, education, health and commerce.

Neil Moss, Managing Director of Pickerings, said “We are very proud to have achieved 50 years in business with a solid name for quality equipment and an even better name for customer service. The company has grown hugely and seen many changes in recent years and I would like to thank our existing and growing customer base, our workforce and other stakeholders for helping us reach this important milestone.”

Pickerings has its head office in Measham close to the Leicestershire and Derbyshire borders. It operates eleven hire depots nationwide in Kent, Southampton, Exeter, Swindon, Aylesbury, Birmingham, Northampton, Derby Measham, Stoke, Manchester and Middlesbrough.
