£100 well spent

Chippindale Plant is celebrating its 75th anniversary this month. Founded in 1949 by Wilfred Chippindale with £100 of his savings, the company has gone from selling concrete and scaffolding, to become one of the UK’s leading construction equipment hire and sales companies.

With a focus on customer service, the company has always embraced new technologies; in 1972, it was one of the first companies to equip its entire truck fleet with radio phones; and a decade later, the company installed computers throughout – almost unheard of in 1982.

Today, it continues to invest in technology and innovation, consolidating its position as a dealer for Atlas Copco, Volvo, BOMAG, Stihl, Belle, Mecalac and Epiroc, with nine depots  across the north of the UK.

Look out for more on Chippindale Plant in the May issue of CPN.
