Formed in 1990, Myrak Limited is now firmly established as one of the leading, privately owned, new and used generator and plant sales companies in the United Kingdom.
Our Managing Director, James Joseph Sullivan, began his business life back in 1975 in building and plant hire, based in Leyton, East London, a design and build construction company who were also experts in demolition.
The company experienced huge growth and by the mid 1980’s was also heavily involved in skip and roll-on-off hire, furthermore, designing and building stores for Wickes, Travis Perkins, Courts Furnishings and many more.
In 1988, James Michael Sullivan joined the company and immediately focused on plant sales and hire – Jim Jnr. has been driving diggers from just 7 years of age and was always to be found in the skip yard loading tippers every Saturday morning, much to the amazement of several lorry drivers as he could barely be seen inside the cab! Together Father and Son formed Myrak Limited in early 1990 and have worked closely ever since.Alongside the arrival of daughter/sister Karen Sullivan as our Marketing Manager and now also our Accounts Manager – we are a truly family-run business!
In November 2013, we moved into our new headquarters in Chelmsford, Essex, a superb facility with huge showrooms, workshops, and over 2 acres of outside hard standing space. This will be our home for many years to come and we are the biggest dealers in the London / South East Region.
Jim Sullivan Snr. wanted to find a niche in the market, not just satisfied with buying and selling general used plant, he wanted to really specialise in a product close to the industry, a product that would instantly be recognised with our company, Myrak – he decided that the generator market was his target and we would go on to become one of the leading independent names in generators sales WORLDWIDE, we have customers from all over the world, a huge customer base in Africa, namely Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Kenya, many satisfied customers from Norway and Finland, sales all over Europe including Ireland, France, Holland, Portugal and Spain, recent new exports have included sales to Australia and USA and even South America to Uruquay and Chile.
In October 2014, Myrak Generators worked closely with the British Government and due to our continued high stock levels we were the only company able to supply and deliver 15 units of New Caterpillar 250 kva and 6 x New Caterpillar 275 kVA Silenced Sets to RAF Base in Gloucestershire for immediate air freight to Sierra Leone to help with the building of 10 temporary hospitals to help with the British Aid efforts to combat the Ebola Outbreak.
Jim Sullivan Jnr. heads our used plant sales team and despite worldwide recessions and general downturns in the global construction industry, we continue to report excellent sales both in the UK and overseas.
With no main dealership ties and restrictions to hold us back, we can offer unbiased views on any make / model of equipment you may require, we source from all over the world, not just the UK, we can sell to you in any currency you require for easier payments and less risk to the currency markets
One buyer from Portugal came to see us in 1999 and was very interested in buying a 100 Tons Grove mobile crane we had for sale, so keen was he to secure the deal that he left as a deposit his brand new Mercedes 500 SEC Coupe car he had only collected from the Mercedes Dealership that morning, we are extremely flexible and will take any equipment in part exchange for our machinery, to date we have taken horse boxes, coaches, cars and even a house!
