The company was started in 1981 in Ilkeston, Derbyshire by Sean Denneny Senior. Starting with one Massey Ferguson 50b excavator, the small company quickly became busy and steadily grew. Sean knew the importance of building a close working relationship with his customers and soon demand meant that the company needed to expand.
In 1999 the company moved to new premises consisting of a six-acre site with two workshops and offices. Since moving site the company has grown year on year, during which time the company has maintained a close working relationship with its core customers, who during this time have remained loyal. The business is now under the control of Sean's two sons; Sean and Simon Denneny and to date, employs over 65 staff.
