Hird managing director Phil Hird said: “Carl has more than 15 years experience in the mini crane hire and sales sector, some of them spent here at Hird. He has a national reputation for his expertise on compact and mini cranes in general and Valla mini cranes in particular, so we are very pleased to have him on board.”

Cooper added: “You could call this a career hat-trick because I am coming back to Hird for the third time. Hird is a dynamic company and has come a long way in just a few years, opening new depots and developing a UK-wide profile. With Valla bringing out exciting new products, Hird and Valla make a perfect package for anyone using mini cranes.”

Cooper first joined Peter Hird and Sons in the early 1990s as a crane mechanic. After a spell away he returned as workshop manager in 2002, to play a key role in the company’s marketing of Valla cranes in the UK, the Middle East and the USA. He rejoins as Valla introduces the new 120 Evo, a new compact pick and carry crane.

Hird now operates from three locations in the UK - Hull, Pontefract and Surrey.


Good luck to you Carl.
