We’ve been praised by Ben Bradley, MP for Mansfield, Nottinghamshire for our recent investment in the local area and in greener technology.
Mr Bradley visited our new Mansfield depot to see the recent investment and was given a tour of our 1,231m² (13,250ft²) site and equipment by our Operations Manager, Mike Rowell. It was an opportunity to demonstrate our custom design, state-of-the-art water tankers, featuring unique capability and fuel-efficient technology to help reduce emissions.
Following our recent growth, we have made a multi-million-pound investment in the area including a full refurbishment of the facilities, undertaken by local suppliers, and through doubling our fleet to increase support to customers.
As part of our commitment to environmental responsibility, the refurbishment included installation of roof-mounted solar panels, designed to generate an estimated 41,432 kWh per year and provide the depot with the ability to self-generate electricity.
This investment and move into Mansfield, expands our offering to the Midlands and the North of England. This provides our customers in neighbouring areas with a faster response to emergency requirements, while boosting the local economy and creating job opportunities.
Ben Bradley said, “It’s brilliant to see a positive investment in Mansfield and a company that has chosen Mansfield out of anywhere in the country to put that investment. Not just moving part of the business here but actually investing in green technology and environmentally friendly practices that are a massive priority for government so a great success story for Mansfield and for the company.”
Our Operations Manager, Mike Rowell, said, “We chose Mansfield for its central location, great transport connections and good recruitment prospects. It’s great to know we have Ben’s support and look forward to settling into Mansfield.”
