Leaving school at 16 Mat joined Genset UK Ltd the well known and recognisable brand and sole distributor in the UK of the Genset Spa range of welders, generators and lighting towers, owned by his father Josh Llewellyn. Starting as an apprentice plant fitter, Mat worked in Genset for 6 years, learning all elements of the business, through from the workshop to sales.
Wanting to gain experience of other similar businesses and also wanting to travel, Mat left the UK for Australia, where he spent another 6 years as a fitter and eventually Branch Manager for Active Tool & Plant hire.
Returning to the UK in 2009 Mat rejoined Genset UK and started his plans to launch MHM Plant Ltd as a sister company, dealing primarily with used equipment and establishing a rehire business to support the major players in the hire industry.
Over the last 10 years MHM has grown to be a leading supplier of power generation, solar-hybrid-generators, fluid storage, lighting towers, engine driven welders and product accessories to the UK and Irish rental markets for both purchase and rehire. In keeping with modern day requirements, MHM place particular emphasis on environmental considerations as they develop the range.
Its not all work for Mat though, in his spare time he loves mountain biking, surfing and frequently partakes in Xtreme Enduro bike racing around the country. With his partner Laura, Mat has recently become a Dad, welcoming a baby boy to join their family of 3 dachshunds.
