Admin with a Grin – Back Office back in Livingston

Our back office team blitz the business.  All our administrative team are based locally, and trained locally.  We don’t just know what we’re talking about, we know where we’re talking about.  We’ve enough people to take care of all the paperwork.  On the road, we’ve enough transport to deliver and uplift on time, every time, and our strategically positioned service teams cover Scotland and the UK – fast.

No Spanners in our Works – Service 24/7

We’re committed to getting it right, first time, every time.  Our field service engineers are the fully-kitted flying squad of the industry.   Our out of hours call out service is second to none.  They’re qualified to the hilt.  CSCS/CPCS cards, and so much health and safety training it’s MPS24 for hire plant.  Trust us, you’re covered.

Our Team do the talking

Our Philosophy says it all

See our health and safety policy here.

Up Front on Costs – what you Agree, is the Fee

No sharp practice with us.  In fact, no charges for sharpening.  Don’t send back our gear encased in cement or coated in tar, and there’s no cleaning charge either. We believe in open invoicing – delivery charges on the first bill, fuel on the last – everything else right there, clearly billed over the hire.  No surprises for you, none from us.

Pulling together for you

We work as one.  Our experience covers all aspects of the self-hire, non-operated plant services industry.

Mulholland Plant Services is a team.  We’re experienced.  The senior MPS staff have over a century of the stuff between them.  We’re active advocates for our profession, and promote best practice in everything we do.  Our founder – Steven Mulholland – is president of our trade body – the Scottish Plant Owners Association.

There’s no resting on our laurels either.  MPS has an intensive training and personal development programme. We don’t just keep up to date – we innovate.  We’ll always offer you market leading solutions.

There isn’t an issue we haven’t meet, there isn’t a challenge we haven’t risen above.  There isn’t a problem you can bring to us that we can’t solve.  Try us.  We love nothing more.

Meet the management


Managing Director

David has been in the business so long, the Romans consulted him on the Antonine Wall (“big earth moving job, that”).  Veteran and vintage are two things not to call Dave.  Experienced and encyclopaedic knowledge of the industry would be more apt.

Steven Mulholland


Hardly out of short pants, has been over two decades in the business, and founded the family company along with David and George.  For plant hire, if he doesn’t know it, it hasn’t been invented yet.  He takes to heart our service commitments

George Mulholland

Financial Director

Figuratively speaking, George makes everything add up.  On the balance sheet he keeps MPS in the black stuff, so you can depend on us to account for all your plant hire needs.  George doesn’t break records, he just keeps them
