THE MHM Group has announced an expansion of its operations into Scotland for the first time after acquiring a site near Glasgow.
The company, which is headquartered in Port Talbot, Wales, revealed the new Scottish venture will be overseen by Scottish regional business development manager Mike Grant.
MHM Group was founded in 2010 and has grown from a small family business into a major enterprise supplying power generation, fluid storage, site lighting, solar and hybrid technology and a range of product related accessories to the construction and plant hire sectors across the UK and Ireland.
The firm is now operational across nine locations and recently made its ScotPlant debut to showcase its products to the Scottish market.
Mike Grant said, “I am delighted that the opportunity has arisen and this expansion into Scotland is only the beginning. We have big plans to continue the development of MHM’s presence regionally and are hugely encouraged by the warm welcome we have already been given by the business community here.”
As a business, MHM Group has set a target to be carbon neutral by 2030. The firm is continuing to develop its eco-friendly product offering, with more than 30% of equipment currently available being solar or hybrid-powered.
MHM Group’s expansion has been led by MD, Mat Llewellyn, who said, “We are thrilled to have a new depot in Scotland as part of our ambitious growth plans, and as we move forward, this additional space will allow MHM Group to increase capacity and enhance our service offering around the UK even further.
“As part of our comprehensive approach to a greener future, the depot will also be crucial in helping us reach other parts of Scotland more quickly with our Eco range – the hope being we can help reduce carbon footprint in the hire and construction sector regionally here too.
“We will also ensure that both our new equipment for sale and our hire fleet become even more sustainable, enabling us as to offer a wider range of solutions for eliminating harmful carbon emissions by the hire and construction sectors. We’re really excited to see the business continue to innovate and develop as we demonstrate to the industry our ever-growing efforts in eco-leadership.”
As a new member of the Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA), the MHM Group added that it will work with partners to network and deliver services across Scotland.
