GAP expands its Lifting Division further after first year trading successes
GAP Lifting Hire & Sales celebrates its first year anniversary during January 2012. The huge success of GAP’s first six lifting depots has resulted in further expansion of GAP’s lifting operation in the UK, with an additional six dedicated Lifting Depots.
The new lifting depots are located in Croydon, Kinning Park (Glasgow), Middlesbrough, Northampton, Lancaster and Plymouth. It is hoped that the success achieved over the first year of trading will continue for all the current and future lifting depots. The new lifting locations have resulted in the creation of twelve new jobs which reinforces that GAP is very much progressing and growing as a business, while many others are forced to make cutbacks.
Since its launch in January 2011, ‘GAP Lifting Hire & Sales’ has been very successful in raising its profile in this important industry, particularly with its admission as a full member to the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) after only three months of trading.
With the opening of the new lifting depots and the six original lifting depots in Bradford, Birmingham, Bristol, Shotts, Tower Bridge and Warrington means GAP now has a 12 strong UK network of lifting depots. There are plans to open a further 6 lifting depots by the end of 2012.
Paul Glover, GAP’s Lifting Division Manager, commented, “I am delighted that the success of the first six locations has led to an earlier than planned opening of another six locations. It is great moving forward when others seem to be moving back”.
With the help of the current GAP staff, the new Lifting staff have integrated quickly into the GAP team and have continued the ‘can do attitude’ which has seen the Lifting Division grow hand in hand with current GAP business.
