Select was originally formed as an internal plant supply company for the R.O'Rourke and Sons business in the UK.

The company's original, primary driver was to guarantee the provision of the highest quality plant and associated services to O'Rourke construction projects.

As Laing O'Rourke grew into one of the world's largest, privately-owned construction companies, Select Plant Hire mirrored the growth of the parent company, servicing a larger portfolio of projects, both in numbers and complexity.

In 2007, Select began operations in Australia and the Middle East to further support Laing O'Rourke's international project delivery capability.

Select is the only total solutions provider within the Australian plant sector. We continue to grow and maintain one of the world’s broadest plant ranges and capabilities.
