Walters plant hire was established in 1982 by its current chairman, Mr Gweirydd Walters; a resourceful and enterprising man that started his career as an apprentice fitter in Trecatti coal mine and through shrewd investment, was able to build Walters from the ground up by purchasing one piece of Plant machinery (a Caterpillar 988 Loading Shovel), hiring this out and then through gradual growth and investment, was able to build Walters into the £250 million pound operation that it is today.
