About Us

The quality of our equipment says everything about the company. Every machine is meticulously examined and serviced before it is dispatched.Pat Fraher

All of our machines are checked and certified by independent inspectors to conform with the Health and Safety Work (Construction) Regulations 1995.

“Our Goal is to delight our customers with quality equipment and customer service”

The company was founded in 1998 and operated at a unit in the Dungarvan Business Park. The business grew and we relocated to the outskirts of Dungarvan where the modern facility offers ample parking space and convenience for our customers. All customers are valued, from the major building contractor to the week-end DIY enthusiast.

Managing Director Pat Fraher is proud to have seen his company grow so rapidly. When Fraher Plant & Tool Hire was founded, he realised that quality and service were the pillars on which the business was to be built and says there are four main factors behind the success of the business.
These are:

  1. Service to Customers – The experienced staff employed at the centre are always on hand to give full technical and practical advice where a personal approach to every customer is guaranteed.
  2. The Range of Quality Products – Fraher Plant & Tool Hire have over 850 products available for hire and has just taken ownership of a new range of equipment for 2003. The company never stands still and is always looking to stock the most up-to-date plant available, offering the most comprehensive range of equipment in the South East. An example of this attitude can be seen in some their latest lines, which include Mini Diggers and Access Platforms that can fit through your front door.
  3. Competitive Prices – the company has a very competitive pricing policy.
  4. Health & Safety – Pat is very proud of the fact the the company complies with the Health & Safety Act. “The safety aspect is extremely important to us. All our plant is tested and certified by independent inspectors,” he stresses.

The Plant & Tool Hire section of the Fraher Group is already well established among contractors and DIY enthusiasts. The company provides a wide range of products at competitive prices and ensures all items are thoroughly checked for safety before they are hired out.
At the construction end of the market is equipment such as Mini Excavators, Dumpers, Sit-on Rollers, Compressors, Generators and Height for Hire Access equipment such as Teleporters. ‘Self-Drive’ Van Hire is also available. Fraher Plant & Tool Hire operates five delivery vehicles ensuring that your plant and equipment arrives when it is needed, avoiding those costly delays.
The Tool Hire section caters for the trade and DIY market, which has expanded greatly in recent years, possibly due to the many Home DIY Television Programmes now showing. The most important thing DIY enthusiasts seek is good tools for the job at competitive prices and a handy piece of advice when it’s needed. Items for hire at the smaller end of the scale include Lawnmowers, Strimmers, Rotavators, Jigsaw Ladders, Dehumidifiers, Carpet Cleaners, Floor Sanders, Power Washers and Kango Hammers, etc.
Pat would like to take the opportunity of this web site to thank all his customers for their much valued custom in the past and looks forward to their continued business relationship.
