Jarvie targeting further growth in Aberdeen

JARVIE Plant has confirmed it is in a “strong position” to support major projects in the Aberdeen area.

The hire firm recently hosted a demo day at its depot on Aberdeen’s East Tullos Industrial Estate, following ‘significant investment’ in its fleet in the form of new telehandlers, rotating telescoping handlers, access platforms and industrial forklifts.

Jarvie opened its Aberdeen base three years ago. Group sales director Ian Hutchison said, “We have enjoyed a steady start since opening in Aberdeen and we’re more than ready to support some major new projects in the region. As the long awaited AWPR nears its final completion we’re in a strong position to provide high quality equipment to projects such as Countesswells or the expansion of Aberdeen Harbour.”

Jarvie said it recently supplied the Aberdeen Harbour project with 12 tonne and 16 tonne self-propelled rollers within an hour of the order being placed. The firm now has its sights set on the upgrade of the 108-mile long railway line between Aberdeen and Inverness, which is due for completion in 2030.

“We have extensive knowledge and experience of similar projects having supplied plant to the Borders Railway, M8, M74 and Queensferry Crossing in recent years,” Ian Hutchison added.
