Expansion drive for GAP Pump Services
By Belinda Smart23 August 2022
UK rental company GAP Hire Solutions is opening two new depots offering pump services, following the opening of its Pump Services division in recent months; the depots are in Warrington (Cheshire) and Dundee in Scotland.
GAP Group has invested over £20 million (€24 million) in Pump Services - the company’s eleventh specialty division - with more than 500 Stage V pumps, and 150,000 metres of hose.
It now operates from eight depots nationwide, including the new Warrington and Dundee depots, with plans for further expansion.
GAP Pump Services focuses on special fluid movement, from basic dewatering to dedicated system design. Under the GAP Environmental product group ranges, the hire company offers chemical dosing plants, lamella clarifiers, pH balancing systems and recycling concrete wash systems.
GAP pumps have been sourced from suppliers including Atlas Copco, DXB Pump & Power and Active Engineering. They are colour coordinated for different uses including draining, sewage and hydraulics, which ensures no cross-contamination.
Richard Broughton, Head of Pump Services, said the company’s offering was designed to meet customers’ individual requirements.
“Some of these requirements have led to extensive research and development to provide unique product offerings, including our fuel safes, lightweight rapid response pumps, and modular pedestrian bridges, which have all been designed using market feedback analysis from customers.
“With more unique product lines becoming available in the coming months, we continue to invest in product lines to reduce our customers’ carbon emissions and energy requirements to help protect to the environment.”
