LGH expands operations in Scotland
By Leila Steed06 October 2022
LGH, a rental company specialising in heavy lifting equipment in the UK, has expanded its operations in Scotland with the addition of a new distribution centre.
The company, which operates as part of US-based LGH group, recently agreed a deal with its sister company, Rotrex, for the use of its warehouse facility in Motherwell.
It aims to capitalise on the “sharp spike in demand for lifting equipment” being seen across the central belt of Scotland and the border regions of Northern England, which is being driven by government infrastructure investment.
Phil Smith, LGH’s European Asset Manager, said: “We are delighted to be able to now offer our Scottish-based clients in the central belt a far quicker service and a broader choice of equipment.
“The new Motherwell warehouse comes as several projects are in the pipeline following bids for the second round of the Government’s Levelling Up Fund.
“The shared warehouse strengthens the Group’s capacity and expertise as complementary businesses. It is an exciting step as we continue to expand our network across the UK.”
According to LGH, the facility will enable it to provide faster deliveries and allow customers in the local area to “benefit from a closer proximity depot for equipment collection”.
The Motherwell site, which brings the company’s UK network up to four locations, will stock a wide range of equipment including hoisting, jacking, material handling, pulling, rigging and safety gear, alongside winches from Rotrex’s product portfolio.
