Flannery celebrates 50 years with a landmark £146m investment in Cat machinery 

It’s a big year for Flannery Plant Hire – 2022 marks their 50th anniversary. Many ingredients have contributed to the resilience and success of this family run company, including their belief in putting people first and the importance of lasting relationships.

The relationship between Finning, Cat, and Flannery Plant Hire goes back to 2008 and is closely linked to their shared focus on customer service excellence and the power of innovation.

The Cat machines that Finning UK and Ireland supply have been at the forefront of digital machine technology developments over the past two decades, with Flannery investing more than £146M in the last 2 years alone.

Chris Matthew, Flannery Plant Hire’s Strategic Manager, points out: ‘Without sacrificing performance metrics, the industry’s emphasis on sustainability and carbon reduction is well served by the Cat portfolio of machines.

‘Operating a digger remotely was considered the stuff of sci-fi only a few years ago but it is now a reality, as demonstrated by the latest Cat Command technology. It’s not yet available on every construction site but keeping operators safe and well by any means is key, and Flannery will continue to explore and invest in machines that support this.’
