Who We Are and What We Do

Go Plant Fleet Services provides access to specialist commercial vehicles including refuse collection trucks, gritters, cage tippers and road sweepers on both short and long-term hire, as well as offering a comprehensive suite of fleet management services, including repair and maintenance.

The company, which remains based as its original headquarters in Leicestershire, merged with Lincolnshire-based Essential Fleet Services in July 2017 – a move backed by private equity house Endless LLP.

Significant expansion has followed with major investment in new technology, the opening of a string of new depots and the establishment of an owned spot hire fleet as well as investment in ‘back to black’ Beam Sweepers, creating the largest fleet in the UK.

The company, which has 40 years’ experience in the industry, now has revenues of around £85 million and employs around 790 staff across 44 depots nationwide.
