On Tuesday 24th May 2022, S.E.L. Clarke celebrated fifty years of business. What better excuse to get everyone together for a company photo?

Some of our team, such as Dave Cornish (pictured below), have been with the company for 38 years!

In 1972 with £46.00 and with a little help from the bank to buy a second hand wheel digger. Steve Clarke OBE and Marilyn Clarke established S.E.L. Clarke.

Fifty years later of long hours and hard work. S.E.L. Clarke are a thriving company in the business of Plant Hire, Civil Engineering Contracting, Demolition and Asbestos Removal based in Bideford, North Devon.

From those early days of only Steve with his machine and Marilyn’s administrative support. The company has grown into a large family business with the third generation of Clarke’s working within the business today.
