Lifting solution specialists, The GGR Group, has opened a depot in Scotland to add its bases already in Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire and Oldham, Manchester.
The 6,000 square foot premises are located in Blantyre, Glasgow, just two miles off the M74, making it ideally placed to access central Scotland. The industrial unit not only houses offices, storage and a workshop, but state-of-the-art training facilities as well. It is the only facility in Scotland offering the complete range of lifting solutions for anyone requiring this kind of equipment, from glaziers to those working offshore.
The Scottish depot will be home to all four of the brands which make up The GGR Group – GGR Glass, GGR UNIC, GGR Galizia and GGR AirLift. The GGR Group is Europe’s leading supplier of vacuum handling equipment, restricted access lifting machinery and mini cranes, along with a variety of complementary products and services.
Thomas Rae, regional manager of the Scottish branch, commented: “I’m looking forward to pushing the GGR Group further north and extending our client base. It’s an area ripe with potential for GGR’s huge array of services.”
Graeme Riley, Chief Executive Officer of GGR also commented: “The success of our Oldham and Long Crendon offices meant that moving into Scotland was inevitable. Scotland is an important marketplace for GGR and we’re excited to see just what we can achieve through this new depot.”
This extension into Scotland reflects the business’s continued growth which has seen it included in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 for two years running.
