By 1986, H. E. Services had grown to become one of the largest dedicated construction & civil engineering, heavy-plant hire companies in the UK. With several other diverse but related enterprises in the mix, as well as a rapidly expanding property portfolio, the decision was made to consolidate the ownership, management and expansion of all the various H. E. companies, divisions and properties under one holding company, and thus H. E. Group Ltd was incorporated.
H.E. Group now comprises:
• Three subsidiaries – H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd, Masterhitch Europe Ltd and H.E. Construction Services Ltd.
• Five divisions – EVision Electric Vehicles, BUY-A-DIGGER, H. E. Solar, H.E. Transport and The Finishing Touch and;
• One affiliate company – AllSafety Ltd., which owns and operates the four UK-wide, Diggerland Adventure Parks.
As well as being the holding company for the above, H.E. Group Ltd has extensive assets including an impressive property portfolio. Which has a value exceeding eight-figures and, in 2015, it invested more than £40 million in new plant and transport to augment and expand its existing fleets. This was to cater for the growing demands of the increasingly buoyant construction and transport industries.
In 2015, H. E. Group Ltd had double-cause for celebration with two of its companies winning recognition at the Medway Business Awards. H.E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd., won the prestigious award for: “Success Through Training”, while Diggerland Adventure Parks picked up the highly coveted prize for: “Growth by Marketing”. Progressive, positive Marketing and the sales this generates is of course absolutely key to any business’s continued success, and so too is a highly trained workforce.
All H. E. Group’s companies and divisions, depots and theme parks recognise this simple truth and are fully committed to providing apprenticeships and higher level training to its employees. This to ensure and secure both its and their future success, with every department boasting either a complement of trainees and/or apprentices, or being able to point to employees who started out as apprentices/trainees and who have remained with their respective company having completed their training.
