Ainscough’s Ipswich depot, just off the A12 near Copdock, will operate six cranes initially.
“The new depot in Ipswich has been planned for some time as we have found ourselves delivering more and more work in the region,” said regional operations director Anna Kingan. “We have managed these demands from our existing depot network, including from our Cambridge and East London depots, but is has become apparent that we needed a permanent base here in Ipswich.
“The new depot will reduce travel times for our cranes meaning our customers will benefit from us being able to prolong the time we can operate on their sites expanding our serviceable area deeper into Suffolk and Norfolk.
“The cranes which will be based at the new depot, are drawn from the existing fleet, as this expansion has been factored in to vehicle requirements for some time.”
