The worlds largest system scaffolding manufacturer has opened a new depot in the West Midlands.
Layher UK’s head office, in Letchworth, is backed-up by a network of regional depots, the latest is now opening its doors in West Bromwich.
The new depot, near Birmingham, puts Layher’s range of equipment and expertise right in the centre of England for the first time. It will provide both a storage and demonstration facility to support Layher’s local clients and to additionally promote their growth in the area.
Layher UK says the site’s location, adjacent to the M5 enables unprecedented access via the region’s motorway network including the M6 and M42 motorways to the north and west and M6 and M42 routes to the east, with the M5 also allowing quicker access to the southwest and Wales.
This means the new depot not only enables Layher UK to demonstrate their equipment but also to transport it more quickly to its customers within the regions.
Experienced at working with Layher Allround materials for many years, Steve Pickard, Layher UK Operations Manager and his colleague Andy Gee, Area Sales Manager are well versed in Layher’s design characteristics and the solutions that it enables. Under the management of Steve and the team, Layher’s well renowned and full added value service package will be fully accessible to all its clients.
Sean Pike, Managing Director of Layher Ltd.’s UK office said: “We have always taken the view that our customers’ decision to utilise our modular scaffolding and access and protection systems is not based solely on proven designs, safety and performance, but also on the ability to access a full range of support services at a local level. Our growing depot network demonstrates this with the new facility in West Bromwich adding to our operations in Eggborough near Doncaster, Livingston in Scotland and Dublin in Ireland.”
