About Us

At RediPlant, our hiring strategy revolves around professionalism and reputation. In the earthmoving industry, it’s tough to get a good name for yourself, so we only work with those who have earned the respect of their clients and others in the industry.

RediPlant formed in September 2016 as a result of an Amalgamation of Heavy Plant Hire and Compact Plant Hire. Consolidating the two companies into one with a passion and drive towards customer service, the amalgamation was a simple choice for both companies. Now with additional resources, and a vision to serve, RediPlant offers a complete and efficient service to its customers.

Heavy Plant Hire (HPH) was established in 2005 when Toowoomba businessman John Thrush responded to fulfil an obvious gap in the hire market for plant and earthmoving equipment. Over the years HPH grew rapidly from a single backhoe to became a fixture of the civil, construction, and mining industries.

In March 2008 HPH consolidated its three locations into its headquarters in Ipswich to better service South East Queensland. The now General Manager Gerald Kirkpatrick also came on board during the move. Over the next 6 years HPH confirmed its position as one of the market leaders in Wet Hire and Dry Hire for projects in the civil and construction industry along with a large mining component.

In January 2014 Gerald embarked on his own venture alongside HPH with Compact Plant Hire providing compact excavators, tippers and skid steers to restricted access projects in Brisbane, Ipswich, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast.

Early in 2015 HPH began to expand and embrace the sales side of the business and began selling more and more machinery to local, interstate and international clients. As the sales became a greater part of the business and worked with the hire side but not with the hire name it was decided that a new brand should be formed.

After extensive research and consultative processes, RediPlant was born to be your Equipment sourcing, supply and solutions provider.
