Our History

Operating since 1997, National Plant & Equipment (NPE) has gained leading market positions in heavy equipment sales and rental. 

National Plant  Equipment

We have achieved this through consistently exceeding our clients’ expectations, fully understanding how we add value to our clients and forging strong strategic alliances.

Mark Ackroyd (current Managing Director) founded NPE IN 1997, with the vision of becoming one of Australia’s leading earthmoving equipment rental companies.

The company has steadily expanded its operations from its inceptions to now being one of Australia’s pre-eminent suppliers of equipment to above ground mining and civil industries.

NPE has a fleet of over 240 items of large earthmoving equipment hiring to many of the major mining and construction organisations Australia wide.

After opening its first site in Newcastle, NPE quickly expanded and now has workshops and offices South East Queensland, Perth, Karratha, Emerald and Mudgee.

Mark has evolved the company over the past sixteen years to participate in global resources sectors, becoming a respected supplier on a global scale.

With fleets of HME under his direction, Mark has capitalised on decades of experience for the continued success of key clients, from the large (eg. International mining houses) to the niche players.
