Select, through its piling business, has been carrying out ground engineering, piling operations and the supply of tools and equipment to the industry for over 65 years.

Our people and equipment have played a key role in delivering some of the industry’s most complex projects by applying our experience and relentless focus on safety and continuous improvement to support our client’s requirements.

Select now boasts the youngest piling fleet in the country, which includes the first Tier 4 engines on piling rigs in the UK, with market leading emissions performance.

Within our fleet, we have machines ranging from 35 to 140t, with specifications designed to add value and increase safety to client operations.


At Select, we take pride in manufacturing piling tools and their components, we have the ability and know-how to build and repair any type of piling equipment: flight augers, bucket augers, core barrels etc. Recent investments in our facilities include a new digital profiler, which assists in the manufacture of most of our equipment, and reduces the need for grinding and cutting by hand, producing higher quality finishes and increasing safety in our workplace.
