UK-based rental company A-Plant has opened a new Industrial and Survey Hire Express Service Centre in North Tees.
The company said the new centre was strategically located to serve the oil, gas and petrochemical facilities in and around Teesside.
It said the location in Billingham was now the third dedicated A-Plant Industrial location, after Wilton and Innospec Ellesmere Port, but it added that it was the first off-site Industrial division that the company had opened and was an integral part of the expansion plans for the A-Plant Industrial brand.
A-Plant’s regional managing director Ian Jordan said, “Our Wilton location has been a huge success and has recently had to move into larger premises to meet customer demand on the site, but it was also clear that another location with a wider product offering was needed to serve customers that work on multiple sites.
“Now with a Service Centre in North Tees we are able to better serve the other industrial facilities in the area with a specialist product range and also provide an enhanced service to our long-standing SABIC contract.
“We are able to offer the complete hire solution across Teesside - our Survey Hire Express division complements the offering from A-Plant Industrial with a range of sophisticated equipment, including Robotic Total Stations, GPS and Machine Control along with hi-tech servicing and calibration equipment.
“What’s more, through our existing A-Plant network in the area we are able to supply more traditional equipment to ensure every on-site job is catered for, such as tools, pumps, compressors fitted with spark arrestors and chalwyn valves, telehandlers, traffic lights and excavators.”
