New UK depot for Hiab
By Christian Shelton20 April 2018
Swedish on-road load handling equipment provider Hiab has opened a new sales and service depot in the UK. Located in in Bishop’s Stortford, the new depot is one of Hiab’s largest in the country. Called the London depot, Hiab said it is strategically placed to serve London and East Anglia and its operations will extend as far west as Oxford, north to Milton Keynes, and south to the coast.
The London depot will offer a full range of services, from equipment inspection to preventive maintenance and breakdown support. It will also act as a base for Hiab’s team of mobile service engineers. According to Hiab, this will provide the flexibility to either service equipment at the new depot or at a customer’s site (or any other convenient location).
“This depot at Bishop’s Stortford represents a significant investment that shows our customers our commitment to them,” said Rogier van der Linde, managing director of Hiab (UK and Ireland). “It ensures we have the resources locally to service their needs swiftly and efficiently… Our decision to invest in this new facility is part of our ongoing strategy to shape and inspire industry with solutions to the challenges of delivering in urban environments… We are ambitious to grow our business, and our new London depot will play a very large part in that growth strategy.”
