GAP fleet investment continues apace

GAP Hire Solutions has announced a £10 million investment in new equipment comprising excavators, dumpers and tandem rollers.

The Glasgow-headquartered business deals with suppliers including Kubota, Wacker Neuson, Thwaites and Hamm. Head of procurement Ken Stewart said, “The capital outlay comprises of 0.8t to 8.0t excavators, 1.0t to 9.0t dumpers and 80cm to 138cm tandem rollers. This significant investment covers our first quarter`s requirements in GAP’s new trading year for the specified product groups.

“Demand remains strong and availability of new equipment is good with purchase orders having been placed with our valued suppliers well in advance of our April start date. We expect similar levels of investment to continue as we plan for the remainder of the financial year. Equipment to our specification and wrapped in GAP branding is now being delivered to our national depot network.

“The GAP brand is now becoming recognised throughout Europe with a delivery of Hamm rollers being spotted on the autobahn close to Cologne bound for our depots.”
