GAP steps up green plans with fresh investment

GAP Hire Solutions has chosen to add to its fleet of site lighting towers, investing in a further 200 X-ECO LED sets from Trime UK.

The order was finalised at the recent Executive Hire Show Road Show, held in Glasgow.

GAP’s Green Action Plan sets out what the firm is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and help customers meet sustainable goals. In support of this plan, GAP has committed to increasing the fleet of X-ECO LED lights, citing the low fuel and carbon emission properties that the product offers.

GAP’s Green Action Plan document states, “The X-ECO LED from Trime is the most innovative lighting product on the market. Thanks to its LED lamps and automated start/ stop technology, the X-ECO LED uses less than a third of the fuel required to run a standard lighting tower, producing 888kg less CO2 per month as a result.”

GAP believes the business now boasts the largest hire fleet of Trime X-ECO LED lights in the UK.

Head of procurement Ken Stewart said, “With fuel prices at a premium the cost savings that the X-ECO LED offers makes these sets very popular with our customers. Their popularity and low running costs helped to make the decision to invest further in the X-ECO LED an easy one.

“We now have a hire fleet in excess of 2,000 units offering various models with the X-ECO LED now being the largest single holding. We continue to enjoy a long standing and successful relationship with Trime and their support and service is second to none. The first deliveries of this new order have been received at our depots and immediately went out on hire.”
