GAP starts new financial year with a bang

GAP Hire Solutions has kicked off their financial year with a bang, investing £10 million in excavators, dumpers and tandem rollers.

GAP’s Head of Procurement Ken Stewart commented: “The capital outlay comprises of 0.8t to 8.0t excavators, 1.0t to 9.0t dumpers and 80cm to 138cm tandem rollers. This significant investment covers our first quarter`s requirements in GAP’s new trading year for the specified product groups.”

GAP deals directly with the industry’s leading suppliers including Kubota, Wacker Neuson, Thwaites and Hamm to source the highest quality equipment in the market.

Being family owned and operated affords GAP significant benefits such as: no shareholder liability resulting in flexibility and a strong balance sheet; the ability to quickly adapt to changes in the economy; efficient short-term decision making and long-term planning and continuity. This combination of available cash, rapid decision making and ongoing commitment to improve their product offering has helped establish GAP as one of the UK’s most innovative equipment rental companies.

Ken continued: “Demand remains strong and availability of new equipment is good with purchase orders having been placed with our valued suppliers well in advance of our April start date. We expect similar levels of investment to continue as we plan for the remainder of the financial year. Equipment to our specification and wrapped in GAP branding is now being delivered to our national depot network".

Consisting of eight divisions, GAP employs in the region of 1,700 people across a network of over 140 locations throughout Britain.

Ken added: "The GAP brand is now becoming recognised throughout Europe with a delivery of Hamm rollers being spotted on the autobahn close to Cologne bound for our depots".
