GAP Group breaks into the Business Insider Top 100 for the first time

National equipment hirer, GAP Hire Solutions, has made the Business Insider Top 100 for the first time in the company’s history.

Business Insider, one of Scotland’s leading business magazines, publish their list of Scotland’s Top 500 best performing companies annually. GAP now sits in the top 100 at number 99 - previously, the company was positioned at number 123.

The increase in ranking can be attributed to an incredibly successful couple of years for GAP. Last year, turnover exceeded £118m, an increase of 20% on the previous year. GAP also employed a strategy to diversify the business and in 2014 launched four new divisions: Survey & Safety Hire, Welfare Services, Event Services and Vehicle Hire. They join GAP’s existing Plant & Tool Hire, Lifting Hire & Sales and Non-Mechanical Plant divisions.

Joint Managing Director Douglas Anderson commented:

We couldn’t be more proud of our ranking in the Business Insider Top 100. The past year has undoubtedly been GAP’s most successful period to date, breaking through the £100m turnover mark, creating four new divisions and winning high profile recognition such as Employer of the Year in the Construction News Awards. Such success couldn’t have been achieved without the efforts and dedication of our staff, and we will continue to work hard to achieve our vision of being the UK’s most innovative hire solutions provider.
