Beaver 84 has merged two of it’s busiest southern depots to create a 2.5 acre mega depot in Hampshire.
Established in 1984 the non mechanical hire firm specialises in the hire of fencing, scaffolding, shoring and other non-mechanical construction equipment.
In a strategic merger, Beaver 84 has merged its Romsey and Guilford depots to a new 2.5 acre site at Bordon. The new site will offer the company twice the space of Romsey and Guildford depots combined.
In addition, the new bypass currently under construction around Borden will improve transportation links for the company, making it easier for its four dedicated Hiab vehicles to serve central London, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and Devon as well as the south coast.
“This is an exciting time for Beaver 84 as the additional space will enable us to expand our business over the coming years. The new 2.5 acre site will mean that we can grow our stock levels to offer our full range of products to the construction industry and reach more customers across the southern region, where previously we were somewhat restricted due to lack of space.” Says Steve Tysoe, Managing Director.
The new Bordon depot at Prince Phillip Barracks, Bordon is now open with Romsey having moved first on 25 February. The Guildford depot will join them on 6 March.
Steve added: “We are delighted to say that the hardworking dedicated teams from both depots will be making the switch to the joint site under the leadership of branch manager Helen Jones.”
The merger means that Beaver 84 now has 10 branches throughout the UK, plus its head office in Wickford, Essex as well as its subsidiary, Star Events Ltd which the company acquired in 2014.
