About Buckhurst

Buckhurst Plant Hire was established in 1993 by the Walsh family. From our humble beginnings in a small yard with only a handful of machines, the company has grown phenomenally in size since then. Buckhurst, with an annual turnover of £15 million, is now operating from several depots across the UK with over 3000 pieces of machinery and plant.

Buckhurst now employs over 100 dedicated people across our depots and field-based roles, while working hard to retain that small business family feel from the early ’90s.

What’s it like to work for us?

We are a very down-to-earth and fun bunch at Buckhurst, and every depot has its own personality and culture.

Everyone has an important role to play within this family-run business, whereby you’re not just a number and you’re expected to roll your sleeves up and “muck in," so to speak, so you may need a pair of wellies in our plant yards.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously, so amongst the hard work, we have a lot of banter, staff socials, celebrations, etc.
