New headquarters for IAPS Group
By Euan Youdale25 August 2015
Powered access distributor IAPS Group has moved into larger headquarters in Telford, UK.
The three acre site includes 16,000sq ft of offices and meeting rooms – a fourfold increase on the old premises - and 66,000 square foot of workshops, stores, yard space and spare parts faclity, which is more than double the old site. Along with the new, larger headquarters in Telford, The Group is also retaining its existing offices and workshops in Huntingdon and Wishaw, Scotland.
The workshops will have 5 tonne and 16 tonne lifting capacity overhead cranes, along with four 4 tonne vehicle lifts. This investment in plant will facilitate the mounting of Aldercote booms to panel vans, following IAPS' recent partnership with the manufacturer.
Steve Couling, managing director of IAPS Group, said, “The new premises – more than double the size of our old site - provide our people with a great working environment and room for us to continue to grow.
“Our investment in the workshop cranes and vehicle lifts also demonstrates how serious we are about becoming a major player in the van-mounted boom lift sector. All the building blocks are in place ready for the launch of the exciting new product line later this year.”
APS represents brands including Genie, Hinowa, Isoli, MEC and Omme Lift. IPS has recently launched its own branded traction batteries and workshop consumables, as well as taking on the UK distributorship for Thermoil battery additives.
