Our Company

Danaher & Walsh was established in 1969 by Vera Danaher, the late Daniel Danaher Senior, Thomas and Michael Walsh as a contracting and plant hire business based in Leicester.

Since its formation, the company has expanded rapidly to become a well-respected family-owned business operating throughout England. Since the late eighties the company has concentrated its activities in two key business areas.

The civil engineering division has developed into a business that can now boast an impressive client portfolio from both public and private sectors. It specialises in framework agreements, highway works including Section 278 agreements, bridgeworks, car parks, drainage, infrastructure, environmental and public realm works.

Our other division specialises in plant hire, providing an impressive range of modern plant and highly experienced operators to an ever-growing client base throughout the Midlands.
