A-Plant has opened up a new Service Centre in North Tees, strategically located to serve the oil, gas and petrochemical facilities in and around Teesside. The new location houses two of A-Plant’s dedicated divisions: A-Plant Industrial and Survey Hire Express.
The location in Billingham is now the third dedicated A-Plant Industrial location, after Wilton and Innospec Ellesmere Port, but it is the first off-site industrial the company has opened and is an integral part of the expansion plans for the A-Plant Industrial brand.
A-Plant Industrial was established with an on-site Service Centre at Wilton International in Teesside to serve the specialist hire needs of contractors working at the facility. Commenting on the decision to open the new Billingham premises, A-Plant’s Regional Managing Director Ian Jordan said, “Our Wilton location has been a huge success and has recently had to move into larger premises to meet customer demand on the site, but it was also clear that another location with a wider product offering was needed to serve customers that work on multiple sites.”
Ian continued, “Now with a Service Centre in North Tees we are able to better serve the other industrial facilities in the area with a specialist product range and also provide an enhanced service to our long-standing SABIC contract. The Service Centre is ideally located on the main road to a number of industrial facilities, as well as important sites such as Hartlepool Power Station.”
“We are able to offer the complete hire solution across Teesside – our Survey Hire Express division complements the offering from A-Plant Industrial with a range of sophisticated equipment, including Robotic Total Stations, GPS and Machine Control along with hi-tech servicing and calibration equipment.”
“What’s more, through our existing A-Plant network in the area we are able to supply more traditional equipment to ensure every on-site job is catered for, such as tools, pumps, compressors fitted with spark arrestors and chalwyn valves, telehandlers, traffic lights and excavators” said Ian.
