GAP head of procurement Ken Stewart said: “This significant investment covers our first quarter’s requirements in GAP’s new trading year for the specified product groups.”
He added: “Demand remains strong and availability of new equipment is good with purchase orders having been placed with our valued suppliers well in advance of our April start date. We expect similar levels of investment to continue as we plan for the remainder of the financial year.”
