    Call Norris for Civil Construction in Geelong

    Here at Norris Plant Hire Pty Ltd, we are really proud of our family history. In 1964, with just a wheelbarrow and a shovel, Keith John Norris started his small drainage business KJ & SJ Norris Drainage. Demand quickly increased and, with the purchase of a Cranvale Little Digger and a Massey Ferguson Backhoe, Norris Plant Hire Pty Ltd was born.

    In the mid 1970s the company’s focus shifted from drainage works to plant hire and as the technology improved the Norris fleet gained bobcats, excavators, rollers and graders. Keith’s son Tim started as General Manager and after several years became the sole director—a position he still holds. Under the professional guidance of Tim Norris, our company continues to grow, going from strength to strength. In response to growing demand for civil works, the Norris Civil Construction Division was formed in 2003, servicing Geelong and surrounding areas.

    When you use Norris Plant Hire, you don’t just get great equipment and operators. You get over 50 years of experience, dedication and knowledge.
