Plant Equipment & Hire, a brand owned by Interact Media Defined (Pty) Ltd, and the CPHA - whose membership forms a significant part of the plant hire industry in South Africa, are ready and eager to commence working together. Both organisations believe that a consolidation will greatly benefit all communities in the sector.

“It is a wonderful opportunity as an association, who in fact started out with Plant Equipment & Hire magazine many years ago, to once again unite with a publisher in South Africa that is already well-established in the plant equipment and hire space, as well as many other related industries where the association can gain the opportunity to engage in further collaborations,” says CPHA chief executive officer, Clive Wicks.

The January 2020 issue of Plant Equipment & Hire will be the first issue where the prior CPHA Magazine will form a defined section in the Plant Equipment & Hire magazine. This will create a product for our audience and membership that we intend to grow and develop according to the needs of the industry. Plant Equipment & Hire and CPHA’s collaboration will continue to provide quality original content and relevant industry intelligence, and further enhance branding and marketing opportunities.

“As a company that is part of the industry together with all of our clients and role players, we believe that this is an exciting and significant opportunity for both organisations to continue to serve the entire plant equipment and plant equipment hire sectors with not only a world-class product, but a product that can make a difference to the industry through the pooling of our combined knowledge and resources. The result will enable us to offer true value to all stakeholders and we look forward to the continued engagement of the industry,” says Plant Equipment & Hire business unit lead, Benjamin Brits.
