Plant Hire & Groundworks Limited


Supporting British businesses 

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic Paragon has continued to support the agricultural sector. We recently provided a £68,000 funding package to support agricultural contractor Mark Hallam Plant Hire & Groundworks Limited with the purchase of a second hand New Holland T7.315 Tractor. 

This most recent purchase was made through Malpas Tractors (Wrexham) Limited, a New Holland dealership who Paragon also supports on an ongoing basis. 

How Paragon helped 

Mark Hallam Plant Hire and Groundworks Limited is primarily centred on agricultural contracting as well as residential property development. 

The purchase of a second tractor will allow the customer to take on additional work and continue expanding their business.  

Mark Hallam, director of Mark Hallam Plant Hire & Goundworks Limited, said: “We have dealt with Ian for almost ten years and have funded a number of pieces of equipment with his help.  

“Paragon are easy to deal with as they like to meet customers face-to-face, which is important to us. We appreciate the direct contact we have with Ian. He has taken the time to really understand the needs of my business and our future plans, and takes the hassle out of the process for me.” 

Ian Smith, Business Development Manager at Paragon, said: “I have worked with Mark for many years. It’s fantastic to know that we are supporting the growth of his business and supporting the sector as a whole during a difficult time.  

“Understanding the needs of the business, as well as the machinery invested in, enables us to make a real difference
