Morris Site Machinery celebrate 40 years’ trading success

Morris Site Machinery staff celebrating 40th anniversary

Leading on-site power equipment suppliers Morris Site Machinery celebrated two milestones recently with their 40th anniversary, since the business formerly known as Arc-gen Ltd was founded, and a 25 years’ trading relationship with Denyo, their main suppliers from Japan.

Customers, suppliers and employees gathered at a VIP event to unveil the refurbished state-of-the-art head office at Four Ashes in Wolverhampton.

At the event, Chris Morris, chief executive, said: ‘Today marks a significant milestone in our company’s history.  We are very proud of our trading heritage and our continued commitment to innovation within the site machinery sector. We are equally proud of our relationships and today’s celebrations are testament to this as we welcome Koga San, Denyo's president, and Mizuno San, director and chief executive for international sales and marketing, who have travelled 5,000 miles from Tokyo to join us today.’


Chris Morris is the fifth generation from the Morris & Company family business, which acquired the former ArcGen Hilta in 2006. Today the company supplies market leading and global brands for the UK hire, construction, oil and gas, rail and events industries and is rapidly expanding its international reach across Australasia, South America and Africa.

The refurbished premises were officially opened by Koga San, who underlined the value and trust which marks the 25-year partnership between the two companies.

Three of Morris Site Machinery’s long-standing employees also celebrated key milestones in their career history. Debbie McCormack, John Brogan and Mick Collins have amassed over 95 years’ service between them.

Phil Winnington, commercial director said: ‘It's so good to see so many of our valued customers and suppliers here today to celebrate 40 successful years.  We are equally proud of the outstanding achievement from three of our much valued and dedicated colleagues - a great reflection of the passion we share for customer service, quality and professionalism.’

The continued investment in both Morris Site Machinery's family of leading brands and the recently expanded Four Ashes site follows the business's most successful trading year on record.
