TRAD’s Rail & Air Division based in West London is celebrating its 70% growth within two years by relocating to new, larger premises near Heathrow.

The new site includes both internal and external storage facilities covering some 22,000 square metres along with fully refurbished offices and includes the provision of a meeting area for our clients.

The Division has successfully managed operations from serviced offices for the last two and a half years and has quickly built an initial £500k turnover to a current budget of £7m in the financial year 2015/2016 with further similar growth planned for the next three years. The new premises will be able to accommodate a large amount of stock and its own Transport Fleet comprising of 7.5 tonne vehicles and HGV articulated units complete with remotely operated cranes.

Neil Garner, Managing Director at TRAD said: “We chose the Depot in Hounslow as it will give us the responsive capability of carrying out Scaffolding works at Heathrow and Gatwick airports and to further specialise in servicing the Rail Sector. 

It is fundamental that any successful Scaffolding Contractor in this field has transport, equipment and labour resources in close proximity to the Airports and we believe that we have identified the best property location to meet and supply this demand.

Airport Projects are often sporadic and at times require essential emergency Maintenance works where access is needed and can be called on at any time and this Depot is in the ideal location to service both of these requirements, as well as having great access to the M3 and M4 corridors. 

The majority of work we will be carrying out from this Depot will involve using our new Metrix system scaffold, but we will also hold a stock of traditional tube and fittings to meet any Client demand. The Depot will additionally be supported with stock and equipment from our HQ operating premises in Bow and Barking, covering some ten acres of open storage collectively and having probably the greatest volume of both System Scaffolding and traditional tube and fittings in the South East.”

Des Moore, TRAD Group MD commented that this was another major stepping stone in the planned growth of the TRAD Group in general made entirely possible by the support and continuing  investment of the ALTRAD Group.
