History of the Company

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. This 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.

We are a family run company that sells both new and used plant machinery and parts to both businesses and individuals throughout the UK and Europe. We are possibly the largest dealer of used machines in the South East and the dealers of Yanmar, Ammann and Cormidi machinery for Kent, East Sussex and the South East of London.

Whether for construction, agriculture or landscaping, we stock a large range of machines which we sell at very competitive prices. A glance through our stock lists will give you an idea of what type of machines are available, but due to our extensive buying power and constant turnaround of stock, we can supply almost any machine you might need.

We also provide a delivery service and can transport machines to almost anywhere in the country through a large co-operative dealer network.

****Fast and flexible finance options are available and we can support you in arranging a competitive rate****

If you are looking to buy a machine, please call us on 01303 844447 and see what we can do for you.
