Morris Leslie Plant Hire

Most of us make do with a candle for each year we’ve been around but not Scotland’s Morris Leslie Plant Hire. It’s having 50 JCB backhoe loaders to celebrate its 50th birthday.

They are part of an order worth £68 million to be supplied by Scot JCB that includes Loadall telescopic handlers, X Series excavators, mini excavators, compaction rollers and site dumpers .

JCB Chairman Anthony Bamford handed over the keys to one of the backhoes to founder Morris Leslie – a special platinum edition machine produced to mark the JCB backhoe’s 70th birthday.

“We are very proud of our long association with Morris Leslie Plant Hire. Like many of our customers, the company has grown from very small beginnings into a force to be reckoned with in the plant hire sector,” Lord Bamford said.

“From one family company to another, we wish Morris Leslie Plant Hire a very happy 50th birthday.”

For his part, Morris Leslie paid tribute to the plant upon which his business has been built.

“Over the years we have bought more than 7,000 JCB machines, so our success over the past half century is very much intertwined with that of JCB and we look forward to building on our partnership in the years to come,” he said.
