Almost 3 years after opening the doors of a purpose-built plant hire depot on Aberdeen’s East Tullos Industrial Estate, Jarvie Plant are now firmly established and geared up for growth in the North East of Scotland.
Our Aberdeen depot team is now working with businesses across a whole range of sectors including house building, construction, local authority, events and renewables.
At the beginning of October we hosted a Demo Day at our 1.5-acre facility on Greenbank Road at which an array of hire equipment, including plant, accommodation and vehicles, was on show.
Last week we announced a further ‘significant investment’ in our fleet of hire equipment with the addition of telehandlers, rotating telescopic handlers (rotos), access platforms, and industrial forklifts. To cope with the demand from the construction sector and house builders, all of the new machines will be made available across our network of depots, including Aberdeen.
Our depot is located to the south of the city centre, which our Regional Operations Manager, Graeme Milne, says has proved to be of strategic importance since opening:
“Being based where we are means we are very accessible from the main routes leading into and out of the city allowing us to react quickly to customer requirements.
Last winter, we also provided several telehandlers which which were used to load up gritters in the Aberdeenshire region from October to March.
“We have enjoyed a steady start since opening in Aberdeen and we’re more than ready to support some major new projects in the region,” says Jarvie Plant Group’s sales director, Ian Hutchison
“As the long awaited AWPR nears its final completion, we’re in a strong position to provide high quality equipment to projects such as Countesswells or the expansion of Aberdeen Harbour.
The next major infrastructure project in the region will be the upgrade of the 108-mile-long railway line between Aberdeen and Inverness due for completion in 2030.
We have extensive knowledge and experience of similar projects, having supplied plant to the Borders Railway, M8, M74 and Queensferry Crossing in recent years,” added Mr Hutchison.
