Plant & Civil Engineer Apr – May ’24

As the Editor of Plant and Civil Engineer Magazine, I pride myself on providing straightforward commentary.

Serving as THE voice of the industry in Ireland, I oversee the compilation of all content. While I’m still relatively new to the role, having been on the job for a year, I’m thoroughly enjoying the experience and the opportunity to engage with industry experts who continuously enhance my understanding of the machinery I cover.

So, if you haven’t already put me on your circulation and contact list for your news and views, please do so now – my contact details are below.

The truth is that I can only put your news in the magazine if I’ve got it! This is even more important now, as, after so many years editing numerous titles for 4SM, former PCE editor, David Stokes has taken well-earned semiretirement. This means that I am the first port of call for all your news.

Thankfully, we’ve got lots of content for this issue. The PCE Awards 2024 are now open for entry so don’t forget to read through the categories and enter – you could win! Our cover story gives the inside story behind Terex Finlay’s first all-electric machines for quarrying and recycling, which are launching at Hillhead 2024, along with many more exciting launches from leading brands. We also preview the Balmoral Show and assess the view from the cab of the Takeuchi TB2150R compact excavator and the SANY SY215C LC. Finally, we’ve got the latest developments in highways and road maintenance plus local news, product reviews and more.

You can keep up to date every day with all the industry news 24/7 at Of course, you should also be getting our weekly newsletter which is emailed out every Tuesday; if not, do subscribe on our website so you don’t miss out. It’s free!
