Equipment giant opens Inverness depot

CONSTRUCTION equipment rental giant Sunbelt Rentals has extended its operations in Scotland with the opening of a new depot in Inverness.

The base serves the Scottish Highlands and supplies a variety of products and services including plant and tool hire, traffic management and utility services.

Two new job opportunities are being created initially, with the firm revealing ‘several’ more are planned in the future as the depot grows.

David Robinson, Sunbelt Rentals regional director for Scotland said, “We are extremely excited to be able to expand our operations into the Scottish Highlands whilst working towards our long-term strategy to grow our operations across the UK. There is significant investment underway in the north of Scotland and we’re keen to support our existing customers working in this area, by making sure that they have access to the equipment that they need.

“The new depot in Inverness will improve our service and products on offer, while allowing us to pursue new business opportunities from Highland based contractors, that are new to the Sunbelt Rentals brand. One of our key priorities for Sunbelt Rentals is to create a lasting legacy.  The Inverness depot will create new jobs, upskill the local workforce and allow us to support the local communities that we serve.”
