Welcome to Aldridge Piling Equipment (Hire) Company Limited,

We look forward to hearing from you, and helping you with your business.
Founded in 1972 by John & Heloise Coley, Aldridge Piling Equipment (Hire) Co. Ltd - also known as Aldridge Piling, APE, APE HIRE and Miniape - is a highly respected and experienced family piling business serving the waterways, canal & river restoration, construction, rail, civil engineering, roads, riparian, flood defences, landscaping, groundworks, events and domestic industries.
With over forty years of experience, APE HIRE is the UK specialist in small piling equipment for hire, and offers the most comprehensive range of air hammers nationally.
Our piling equipment is designed to drive a very wide range of piles into the ground, (in a variety of different soil conditions), including trench sheeting, steel piles, and plastic piling. Our piling hammers can also be used to install mandrels, tubes, cages, timber posts and a wide range of cold formed sections such as those used with solar panels.
Our hammer piling equipment fleet includes our own renowned APE Mini Hammers and also those from leading brand manufacturers, such as:
- Handheld hammers and power packs - Atlas Copco Post Drivers
- Air Impact Hammers - APE Mini Hammers, Atlas Copco, and BSP 'N' Series
- Mini Vibratory & VIbratory Hammers - (Dawson Construction Plant, ICE, Movax and EMS Group)
- Air Impact Extractors - Zenith and Tractomat
We also operate a very successful piling hammer repair and service centre.
- General repairs
- Full Service
Don’t be part of the ‘throwaway’ generation. Let APE HIRE repair your piling hammer and get it back working as it should be.
Every piling hammer sent in for repair/service is personally overseen by our ‘hands on’ Managing Director, John Coley, alongside his qualified and skilled engineers. Our Team takes great care and pride in each job.
Why go to the expense of buying a new hammer, when you can get your hammer fixed at a very fair rate?
APE HIRE is an active member of the CPA (Construction Plant Hire Association), and has also forged strong working, and research collaborations with many UK universities on new piling products, such as Wolverhampton University, the TEE (Birmingham City University), Warwick University, Stafford University, Coventry University, and most recently, Cranfield University.
