On the back of these interviews, which have so far featured Flannery Plant Hire, Lynch Plant Hire and Walters Group, with Plantforce coming up, Peter has also been recording a new podcast series with the same leaders. This is the first series of its kind, which will give listeners a real insight into the opinions of leaders on a whole range of subjects, from skills to technology to HS2 and more.

Today sees the launch of the first in an initial six-part series, featuring Chris Matthew the Strategic manager for Flannery Plant Hire. In his earthmovers interview in the April 2020 edition, Chris talked about its focus on a projects total fuel consumption, as part of a more sustainable approach to earthworks projects.

In the in-depth podcast, it is over 30 minutes long, Chris talks more about fuel and how the business is investing in technology, skills and what its customers are looking to achieve. It's free to listen to at the link below.

We hope you will enjoy this series and how it gives you a window into the minds of those running some of our larger plant hirers and contractors. Happy listening
