Hamm on a roll with GAP Plant Hire

Hamm Rideon Roller

GAP Group has extended its three-year supply agreement with Hamm for the sole supply of ride-on rollers. The manufacturer will now supply its 80cm, 100cm, 120cm and 135cm rollers until the end of 2016.

The company currently has a fleet holding of more than 1100 machines in those sizes and group procurement manager Ken Stewart said, “There are mutual benefits for both parties in a long-term, sole supply agreement, with Hamm and ourselves being able to plan for the future with confidence.

“One of the key benefits is supply continuity of new equipment during periods of continuing high utilisation, with Hamm working to our forecast purchase orders during their “quieter periods” over the winter months. This ensures new equipment is made available to our customers from the start of our new financial year in April and onwards. Hamm is one of several of our key suppliers with whom we have long-term supply agreements.”

He described the rollers as ‘very robust and well designed to cope with the rigours of the hire industry’ and said they have been well accepted by customers and GAP depots.
