Griffiths Hire Shops is a family run business which started trading in Gobowen (near Oswestry) in 1980. The business was founded by Mr Chris Griffiths who had experience in the construction & plant industry for many years and realised there was a need for a tool hire outlet in the near area. The business became successful and Chris soon opened another outlet in Whitchurch followed by a further outlet in Wrexham in 1990. The Wrexham shop was moved to a purpose built premises in the mid 1990's. Another shop was opened on the Oswestry Industrial estate in the early 1990's which was then amalgamated with the Gobowen shop with a new premises & head office being built on the Maes-Y -Clawdd estate in Oswestry in 2000. We continue to expand our range of equipment, products and services.
