Company Profile

KDM Hire is a professional and dynamic family-run business which has grown to become one of the UK and Ireland’s leading equipment rental companies.

Operating from depots in Cookstown Co. Tyrone, Belfast and Dublin and employing over 150 people, the business offers a large range of equipment for hire along with associated support products and services. KDM is unique in its ability to meet the scale and logistical requirements of large projects throughout Ireland.

With over 30 years of experience within the industry, our passion remains the same to simply do ‘whatever it takes’ to deliver quality equipment and services to our customers and work tirelessly to ensure we are continually improving.



With a vast range of rental products available and the knowledge and operational requirements for all types of equipment not the same, it is important that some specialist products within our range are offered for hire and operated differently than general plant and tool hire.

To guarantee quality of service and ensure customers receive the products and support required, our cabin hire, generator hire and vehicle rental divisions are operated and branded accordingly to ensure this focus is provided. These divisions operated with their own dedicated and experienced teams and in the case of K cabin, from a dedicated 4-acre site.

Please see a brief outline of our product categories and branded divisions below.
