Speedy has opened two new regional service centres in Scotland, each located on major routes into Edinburgh and Aberdeen for optimum local convenience.

The purpose-built 22,000sq ft centre on West Edinburgh Business Park brings together its former depots in the city and the full hire fleet under one roof. This also helps to reduce carbon emissions, in providing equipment to customers from a single delivery point. Meanwhile, the 13,200 sq ft Aberdeen centre on Denmore Industrial Estate is almost a third larger than the city’s two previous outlets combined. 

The extra space will also allow both centres to offer customer training, including IPAF and PASMA courses for safe working at height. Both locations will contnue to offer tools, lifting equipment, plant, and powered access machinery, as well as providing site surveys to customers.

“The new sites in Edinburgh and Aberdeen occupy strategic locations in each city. This means we’re now much more accessible for customers at busy times, with arterial connections ensuring deliveries land with customers fast, and well within our four-hour delivery promise," said Ryan McGurk, regional manager for Scotland.

“With the new base in Edinburgh, we’re well positioned to support contractors as they fulfil major housebuilding and infrastructure projects underway across the city region. Likewise, our new Aberdeen centre will bring our lifting services back into the city to meet significant local demand from the large base of companies supporting offshore operations.”
