By 1990 further growth meant a move from Hockley to a large new premises in Rochford Southend-On-Sea.
In the late 1990's, major extension work was carried out to Mark 1 Hire, part of an ongoing program to improve facilities and grow the company. Making room for a growing fleet of equipment and creating a fully equipped workshop in which to carry out maintenance work. October of 2005 saw the opening of a new depot in Chelmsford, signifying a new phase in Mark 1 Hire's growth. In 2009 we took over a transport yard at the rear of our Rochford depot, giving Mark One additional space for expansion. 2010 saw the development of the training side of the company, which started from our own training needs for IPAF & PASMA and has developed into two fully staffed training centres. 2011 saw increased investment in the powered access equipment. In 2013 we had made a major investment in the Powered access hire and added a forth HGV truck to deliver the powered access. 2014 saw again continued investment in Powered Access machines and with high demand for bigger MEWPs. 2015 saw the purchase of the latest Hybrid Niftylift HR17 booms added to the access fleet which now is over 180 machines. 2016 has so far seen the delivery of more big Hybrid Boom Lifts we now have the Niftylift HR21 Hybrid machines which are proving to be very popular. Fingers crossed 2016 will continue to be a great year.
