MTS Group has confirmed the opening of a new depot at Cumbernauld to offer rental services for Bobcat products in Scotland.
The Group runs one of the largest fleets of Bobcat compact equipment for hire in the UK and one of the biggest in Europe. The new Cumbernauld depot adds to the existing MTS hire depots at Leigh in Lancashire, Birtley in Tyne & Wear and at the headquarters in Wakefield.
The expansion has been accompanied by ongoing investment in Bobcat compact loaders and excavators worth over £1.5 million for the MTS Group hire fleet, providing new machines for hire from the Cumbernauld depot and the company’s other outlets. This investment includes purchases of the very latest Bobcat equipment such as S450, S510 and S550 skid-steer loaders, T590 compact tracked loaders and brand new E19 and E20 compact excavators.
Peter Watson, Managing Director of MTS Group, said, “Scotland has always been a busy market for us, especially in the winter months and in times of inclement weather, when the Bobcat range is in its element. Winter attachments such as snow blowers, buckets, snow blades and salt and sand spreaders are all available from Cumbernauld, part of a fleet of over 100 Bobcat attachments for hire from MTS Group, the largest of its kind in the UK.
“In the past, we have served the Scottish market from our Birtley depot near Newcastle, but the opening of the Cumbernauld depot allows us to enhance our service in Scotland, bringing it right to the doorstep of our customers in Glasgow and Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland.”
