The Fox Group consists of Fox Brothers, Hurt Plant Hire and CMP Plant Hire, with all companies specialising in haulage, aggregates, earthworks, plant hire and waste solutions.
The combined 150-strong fleet of wagons makes it the largest in the region, while the group also operates a significant fleet of plant and machinery with over 400 machines.
The Fox Group is one of the main providers of earthworks and aggregates transport in the North West and is able to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ solution for housebuilders, infrastructure, construction and civils contractors. Also possessing the capabilities to tackle larger and more complex engineering projects.
Fox is a data-driven business with fleet optimisation at the core of our operations. There is significant growth potential for the Group by improving efficiencies across the whole fleet. Recent acquisitions, including Hurt Plant Hire and CMP Plant Hire have significantly enhanced the combined Group’s buying power for wagons, plant, equipment, fuel, tipping and aggregates.
In addition to the group acquisitions, Fox has expanded across the North West with depots in Blackpool, Leyland, Manchester, Chester, North Wales and Cumbria. Expansion to existing service area allows for the group to compete for contracts across the UK. Complementing the expansion of service area is new Quarry sites, located in North Wales and Bacup. This enables the Fox Group to supply quality raw materials from source, with more control over materials.
Regarding the Group’s recent acquisitions and business growth, Paul Fox says “Looking further ahead our plan is to continue to grow both organically and through selective acquisitions.”
He added: “We are building on the foundations established by my grandfather HF Fox who built the business. He passed away in 2007 but his legacy lives on and I am sure he would be proud of what we have achieved.”
As a proud and well-established family business we are delighted to sponsor this year’s EVAs Family Business Award – Now more than ever, we feel it’s important to show support for family run and local businesses who have been able to persevere in what has been a very difficult period for all.
