Investment announced for dedicated service in Scotland
News-October 25, 2022
Welfare Hire Nationwide (“Welfare Hire”) is expanding its depot network further by making an investment in Scotland with a new depot in the central belt, along with a new dedicated Scottish team.
Welfare Hire is part of the Kelling Group, the UK’s largest provider of highly ECO efficient Welfare products and Vehicle Mounted Access Platforms. The Group has over 3,500 assets, with an average age of less than 2.5 years and commits over £30m in investment to new equipment annually.
“This investment demonstrates our commitment to the Scottish market as part of our long-term growth strategy. We look forward to working even closer with our existing clients and for new clients to experience our market leading products and service” said Stephen Moore, Group CEO.
“Our current customers in Scotland are familiar with the high standards we work to. As part of this operational expansion, investing in a Scottish team based locally will improve on this even further,” stated Chris Brown, Group Operations Director.
Lauren Thomson has joined the team as Regional Sales Manager and is on hand to support existing and new clients locally.
The centrally located depot will supply Welfare Hire’s market leading mobile ECO welfare units, welfare vans and eco tower lights to sectors such as rail, highways, utilities and construction.
The Scottish depot will also conduct Welfare Hire’s rigorous 67-point quality check, which is carried out on every Welfare Hire unit ahead of each and every job. This bespoke and unparalleled quality assurance regime ensures consistently high standards and service for the largest and most modern ECO fleet in the market.
“With this investment we can better support infrastructure construction work around core sectors, including Scotland’s current Infrastructure Investment Programme,” explained Andy Grayshon, Commercial Director. “Our products create the highest-level working environment for site setup needed in construction and infrastructure development. As modern towable units, with low cost and low carbon transport and maintenance, our mobile eco units can be used in remote and rural areas, where much of the development is due to take place.
“In addition, our products incorporate the latest green technology and smart innovations, so they fit perfectly with our clients’ drive toward net zero emissions.”
