Actavo expands branch presence in Scotland and the North-East

As part of an ongoing expansion of its local network across the UK, Actavo | Hire & Sales Solutions – a leading hire and sales merchant of non-mechanical construction equipment – is extending its Gateshead, Dundee, Manchester and Glasgow branches.

Alongside Actavo’s other depots in Scotland (Edinburgh) and the North (Teesside), the expanded branches will offer a wide range of specialised scaffolding, light access, temporary roofing and fencing, building equipment and fall prevention load deck safety systems.

Gary Johnstone, Regional Manager Scotland and the North, says: “Through our branch expansions, we’ve hired a number of additional team members, which is a vote of confidence in the local economy across Scotland and the North of England. Our Hire & Sales customer base ranges from sole traders to national contractors, a broad spectrum that helps define who we are.

“The Scottish construction sector remains buoyant with major government transport and energy projects planned for this year, as well as the housebuilding sector that continues to grow in confidence. With our expanded branch presence, we will be best-placed to deliver the support and product solutions this sector needs.”

Roger Hastie, CEO of Actavo | Structural Division, says: “It’s through our drive to deliver excellence that Actavo is continually strengthening access to its branches across the UK and Ireland. Our network of depots in the UK and Ireland – 35 and counting – brings us closer to our customers and facilitates fast, efficient and knowledgeable local service.

“The expansion of our depots in Gateshead, Dundee, Manchester and Glasgow demonstrates the business’s development and evolution to continue to meet the various and changing needs of our growing, loyal customer base.”

Actavo Dundee opened on 16 January 2017 at 6 George Buckman Drive, DD2 3SP. Actavo Gateshead opens in March at 1-2 Nest Road, NE10 0ES. Actavo Glasgow and Actavo Manchester open their new, larger premises in the coming months.

All branches are open for business from 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
