Contractors experience plant shortages

Construction industry contractors are facing shortages of plant equipment and machinery, according to reporting by Construction Enquirer

For some types of smaller plant, manufacturers are now said to be quoting 2022 delivery dates.

The market is heating up rapidly in the North and Midlands where major projects are starting to get going as part of the Government’s stimulus package.

One hirer told the Enquirer: “We are screaming for new gear, but it’s difficult to get.

“It may not be so bad for the major hirers, who as big buyers have pre-ordered a lot of kit, but as a smaller business trying to buy, dates are being quoted towards the back end of this year or even 2022.”
