Heavy Plant Machinery for Sale In Ireland

Heavy Plant Machinery for Sale In Ireland

Heavy machinery comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. With this machinery used for a wide array of earth-moving activities, the machinery industry is said to be worth £4 billion to the UK economy. While we know these facts, there seems to be no clear answer as to why we call Heavy Machinery ‘Plant’. The best theory we can give here is that the term was coined during a time that machinery used in construction, demolition, and other earth-moving activities, were predominantly static. If this is the case, the machinery may have resembled the stationary machinery used in factories – which can also be called plants.

Another argument to support this theory is that the term ‘Plant’ used to describe heavy machinery and equipment is derived from the Latin Plants – ‘seed’ or ‘cutting’ – which was later influenced by the French Planter, meaning ‘to fix in place’.

We can further note that, for accounting and financial purposes, Plant Machinery is considered a ‘fixed asset’. This is because the machinery is used consistently by a company to produce (or aid production of) a product. For example, Plant Machinery used on a construction site is actively used to produce the final product of a building.
