Bullen Plant Hire

Bullen Plant Hire was formed in 1969 by Frank and Helen Bullen.

They invested everything they had to start up their own business and provide a better life for themselves and family.

More than fifty years later, Bullen Plant Hire still remains to be a family run business which is proudly headed up by Frank and Helens sons Graham and John. They have been providing professional and cost-effective solutions for their clients in the Construction, Civil Engineering, Utilities, Groundwork and Landscaping industries for many years and continue to grow the business their mother and father worked so hard to create. 


Located at Appley Bridge in the North West of England and being situated close to the M6 Motorway makes Bullen Plant Hire strategically placed to provide our customers with a rapid, low-cost hire and delivery service.
