From our very humble beginnings designing and making furniture from reclaimed scaffold planks our business has taken us in some wild and exciting directions. We believe the name The Plank Company just doesn't fit right with where we are and more importantly where we want to be.
After much deliberation we will now be known as BAYA Hire.
Wait, what? Let me explain the meaning of 'Baya' to give you the gist on the name change.
Baya is a type of weaver bird and it sums up all of us here pretty nicely we think.
'The ‘baya weaverbird’ is found across the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. They are best known for their hanging retort shaped nests woven from leaves and grass shoots.
These nest colonies are often built near water and are so ingeniously constructed as to defy their rivals.
They are widespread and common within their range but are prone to seasonal movements mainly in response to rain.’
This fits in well with our ethos of working towards a sustainable company, growing in new directions and also striving to have a good work/life balance.
