New HSS Chairman Archie Norman today officially opened the company’s new central base for Scotland, one of the biggest plant and tool hire depot in the UK. From the facility near Edinburgh airport it will supply every type of tool to clients in Fife, Edinburgh and Livingston.
Opening the depot, Mr Norman, said: “This exciting opening demonstrates HSS Hire’s commitment to Scotland, its businesses and its people.” HSS Scotland includes Scottish Power and Network Rail among its customer base.
David Johnstone is Managing Director of HSS Scotland and will be based at the Edinburgh facility. He commented: “We have invested heavily in extending the range and preparing our new central base for the Scottish operation. This investment allows us to be more active in markets more traditional to HSS. This depot is strategically and geographically positioned to provide a fast reactive service to our customers.”
The 20-strong team based in the depot is trained to advise on all types of tool and plant held in the 32,000 sq ft facility. A training area within the building is available for instructing staff and customers. The facility will also act as the Head Office for HSS Scotland.
