In March 2019, EV Private Equity injected a multi-million pound investment into the company, with Motive aiming to become a £30m EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation) business.

Motive has a clear and focused expansion strategy and continues to grow and strengthen our offering through successful acquisitions and collaborative business relationships. This has played a key part in our company's progression, and reputation for Motive is everything.

Motive launched with the aim of providing quality equipment and services from a positive place of work, utilising the skills and talent of local people.

Today we are committed to delivering a complete solution for the entire lifecycle of projects: from conception to completion and keep our core values of people, planet, product at the heart of everything we do.

Our focus has always been on the provision of safe, reliable solutions to help keep clients’ projects moving, whilst offering maximum cost-efficiency.

As the world changes, so do we. We will rise to the challenge. We remain versatile and responsive, one of many reasons our clients keep coming back.
