About Us

A Brief History

In 2003 Scot and Clare purchased a mini digger in order to dig some trenches to lay electrical cables to their gates. When it came to selling the mini digger, they found they were able to make a profit. This inspired Scot, who at the time was an electrical engineer carrying out commercial maintenance work and Clare’s father Andrew, who had recently sold his used car parts business, to combine their skills and start refurbishing used machines for resale. The part time endeavour quickly became a busy full time business and in 2004 S and A Estates was formed. In 2008 Andrew chose to retire from the business and as a reflection of this change, the business was renamed CoPlant Ltd.

CoPlant Today

CoPlant is a family run company that sells both new and used plant machinery and parts to both businesses and individuals throughout the UK and Europe.
