Our History

B.Line Plant hire began trading in the mid 1970’s with Bill Line. Bill ran the company as a sole trader up until 1981, when Bill decided to set up B.Line as a limited company.

Since then the company grew from a small Plant hire firm into a civil engineering contractor, taking on contracts in the excess of 4 million pounds. Here are some pictures showing our history.
