Our History

Operating since 1997, National Plant & Equipment has continued to gain a leading market position in the mining industry through our heavy earthmoving equipment rental solutions.

We have gained a leading market position through consistently exceeding clients’ expectations and forging strong long-term relationships.

Mark Ackroyd as the founder, CEO and Managing Director of National Plant & Equipment, had the vision of becoming one of Australia’s leading earthmoving equipment rental companies. By combining relentless tenacity with the discernment to perceive emerging market opportunities, he was able to build the business from a single bulldozer to one of the largest fleets of heavy earthmoving equipment in Australia.

The company has continued to expand and we have become one of Australia’s pre-eminent suppliers of equipment to open-cut mining and civil industries. We have a large and expansive fleet of over 350 units, hiring to many of the major mining and construction giants across Australia.

After firstly opening in Newcastle, we now have locations throughout Australia including Nebo, Emerald, Yatala, Southport, Toowoomba, Hunter Valley, Perth, Karratha and Katherine.
