GAP Hire Solutions, the UK’s leading independent hire company, has announced the opening of their brand-new depot in Norwich.
Due to extensive growth in the area, GAP made the decision to expand their premises and relocate to a larger depot, creating a number of jobs within the local area. Located at Broadland Business Park, the extensive 3-acre site can be easily accessed from the A47.
The brand-new depot will provide products and services from four of GAP’s specialist divisions, consisting of Plant, Tools, Lifting and Survey & Safety. These services will be available throughout most of East Anglia, consisting of Norfolk and Suffolk.
GAP worked with R G Carter, a Construction Services company, to support with the design and construction project management of the depot, offices and external storage yard.
Gavin Smith, Head of Estates at GAP Group, commented: “Due to the continued growth of our business in east Anglia it became apparent that the old existing premises were not compatible for our future growth ambitions. As such, we purchased a 3-acre development plot in Broadlands and created a 10,000 sq ft industrial building and secure concrete storage yard. We are delighted with our new depot and R G Carter were first class construction partners.”
Mario Rackham, Director at R G Carter said: “It has been a pleasure for R G Carter to help deliver GAP Group’s new warehouse as part of their expansion programme. We are extremely proud to now be handing over the building and to see it start to benefit the local community through recruitment and support the services and needs of many companies across the county.”
This depot is part of GAP’s expansion plans across the UK – investing in people, plant and premises to grow the business.
