About Us

AE Faulks Ltd is a leading plant hire and earthworks company servicing the building/construction industries
in the heart of the East and Central Midlands.

A E Faulks Ltd is an independent construction plant hire and earthworks company servicing in the East and Central Midlands.

Our founder Ted (Albert Edward) Faulks began operating as a one man enterprise in 1973 and expanded as a partnership with his sons over the following 20 years. In 1993 Terry Faulks (Ted’s son) and Paul Frost (Ted’s son in law) incorporated the company as A E Faulks Ltd.  The business successfully expanded and developed purpose built offices and workshops at Hickling near Melton Mowbray in 1997.  By 2006 the company had developed into five distinct operating divisions consisting of; plant hire (operated and self drive); road sweeper hire;  lorry tipper hire; skip hire and recycling and contracting (earthworks, demolition and site clearance).  In 2018 the difficult decision was made to close the skip hire and recycling division to enable the company to concentrate on the investment and expansion of its other divisions.

With firm foundations as a family business we offer a first class service through market leading manufacturers equipment (including the latest safety features) experienced and competent operators backed up with professional advice from our office staff.  We work with local authorities, major contractors, national building companies, local builders/landscapers and the general public throughout the East and Central Midlands.
