Mobile Mini, a leading hirer of portable site accommodation and secure storage containers, has invested nearly £3.5 million in its branch network in the past 12 months following a surge in demand.
The latest of the firm’s investments comes with the opening of a 4-acre site on Hepworth Road in North Hylton, Sunderland. The Company’s re-located North East base consists of modern office units, two workshops with state-of-the-art equipment, and ample space for its growing fleet of storage containers, site accommodation units and delivery vehicles.
Due to a period of continued growth across the Company’s nationwide network of 15 branches, similar investments have taken place in Wakefield, Bridgend, Carlisle, London and the Thames Valley over the past year.
The firm has also invested £1.5 million in a major upgrade of its industry-leading fleet of lorry-mounted vehicles, adding eight vehicles including two 32T GVW 8-wheelers with FASSI820 cranes and front mounted legs.
Speaking about the Company’s growth, Managing Director Chris Morgan said: “These are exciting times at Mobile Mini, as we go through this period of growth and investment, whilst still striving to maintain our reputation for exceeding our customers’ expectations.
“These investments have enabled each branch to better serve our customers with quicker turnaround times and improved product availability on site, while the new trucks improve efficiency and safety, and allow access to otherwise difficult sites.
“We are currently reviewing our facilities in a number of other branches to ensure they are able to support our growth plans and we expect that to lead to further branch relocations in the future.”
