Our History

From the company’s formation to the present day our ethos has been to be the leading name in construction equipment in the UK, by delivering class leading products with national product support from our 13 depots and appointed sub-dealer in Ireland. Having originally traded under the names Beazer Plant Sales and BM Plant between 1972 and 1993, the company became HM Plant in 1993 before becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe in 2007 and eventually changing our name to Hitachi Construction Machinery UK in 2014. HCMUK headquarters were relocated from Somerset to a purpose-built seven-acre site at Hebburn, South Tyneside. This enabled easier and cost-effective importation of machines via the North Sea from Amsterdam, Oosterhout and Japan. Our HQ is a statement for the values and work ethics that has made Hitachi Construction Machinery synonymous within the construction, quarry and mining industries.


We’re celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2022 and are looking back at our success over five decades while creating a brighter future together with our customers and employees.
