Site Equip Celebrates 30 Years

Site equip team members

This October Site Equip celebrated 30 years hiring portable toilets, site accommodation, mobile showers, fencing and trackway to the event and construction industries.

Set up by husband and wife Sonia and Geoff Gilbert, Site Equip was the first company to bring portable toilets to the UK from the USA. From working weekends and evenings, with Geoff’s father delivering and servicing the toilets, the business is looking very different today with two depots, 60 full time members of staff and a fleet of over 3,000 toilets plus showers, accommodation, fencing and trackway. It has also been pioneering in its development of luxury themed toilet trailers including the Gypsy Caravan, Potting Shed, Beach Hut and the Shabby Chic. The team most recently developed a urinal system for larger events, and this year launched a new luxury vacuum range.

Now run by the next generation, Amy and Adam Gilbert are at the helm winning new business from events including Carfest, Pub in the Park, and Standon Calling. With its 30th year being Site Equip’s biggest so far (at the peak having over 2,500 loos on hire) the team is looking forward to the next 30 years.
