About A & R Rothen Ltd -

Work Boat and Plant Hire Specialists

Our Company has its roots in Canal Transport – formed in 1981, A and R Rothen Ltd began life moving Coal, Steel Piles and other materials, for the former British Waterways. Before long, we were also undertaking other works on the waterways, from towpath and mooring installations, to major dredging contracts across the Birmingham area. We now have over 35 years of experience working on rivers and canals across the country.

During this time A and R Rothen Ltd have developed an extensive fleet of Work Boats and associated plant for hire, some of which have been custom built, to suit a variety of applications and requirements, and today we are proud to call ourselves one of the leading suppliers in the UK of narrow beam work boats, and both Marine and General plant for hire , with a customer base which includes, the Canal and River Trust, Kier, Gallifords, Morgan Sindall, and the OCS/Fountains group, to name but a few.
