Speedy’s first dedicated hoisting depot is based at a new 52,000 sq ft hub in Birmingham, stocking what is claimed to be the UK’s largest range of Geda transport platforms, offering safe working loads of up to two tonnes.
A further eight specialist hoist centres are set to open in 2021.
Speedy Services director Lisa Blake said: “We’re always looking for new opportunities to improve our product and service offering. This significant investment simplifies and improves the age profile our fleet, enabling us to offer a consistent service nationwide. The investment also marks a significant step forward in ensuring we are the first choice for businesses that need hoisting and lifting equipment to deliver safe and successful projects.
