GAP Group introduces its 11th specialist division

GAP Hire Solutions, the UK’s biggest independent hire company, is delighted to announce the launch of its 11th standalone, specialist division, Pump Services.

This new division has been taking shape over the last year with steady and meticulous planning to ensure the now fully established GAP Pump Services is ready to serve customers throughout the UK.

The Group has invested £18 million in pumps and related ancillary equipment for its newest division, equipped with a number of Stage V pumps which are colour coordinated for their different uses including: drainage, sewage and hydraulics. Brand-new delivery vehicles have also been purchased solely for use within Pump Services. On top of this, a team of pump experts, including Head of Pump Services, Richard Broughton, have taken up new positions at GAP.

Pumps

The hire company’s fleet of pumps have been supplied by core, industry leading, suppliers such as Atlas Copco, DXB pumps and Active Engineering, with pump sizes available from 2” to 12” across the range.

Mark Anderson, Managing Director North at GAP, commented: “GAP has already been heavily involved in the water and utilities industry over the years, so the establishment of this new specialist Pumps division will help to cater to our customers’ needs even further.

“Our pumps are the most efficient, modern models currently on the market and are fitted with telematics systems to ensure complete control for the user. Pump Services also offers silt sifter solutions and chemical dosing equipment as well as ancillaries, such as road crossing pipes and pedestrian ramps.

“We have select locations for our initial Pump Services depots, strategically placed across the UK to ensure overall service coverage. Eventually, we plan to have around 15 Pump Services depots throughout the country, ensuring our specialist customer service continues to be of the high standard we hold ourselves to.”

Pumps depot shoot

GAP Pump Services will initially operate from three core locations within the Group’s Non-Mechanical and Welfare Services depots in Tilbury, Derby and Tewkesbury. In the coming months, the company’s Bury St Edmunds, Harthill and Warrington Pump Services depots will open, with plans to open further facilities very soon.

GAP continuously works to make its customers’ lives easier and forming specialist divisions, such as the new Pump Services, allows the hire company to meet their requirements efficiently and effectively.
