Construction & Plant

Salt of the Earth

A-Plant is often featured in ITP.   As a national account, Pirtek looks after the company throughout the country.   Although A-Plant holds an enormous amount of equipment that is standard across its network, each centre has specialist vehicles to serve the local business community.

A-Plant Dundee is no exception with the usual array of excavators up to 9 tonnes, dumpers to 10 tonnes and telescopic handlers up to 17 metres in the yard awaiting delivery.  However, these standard items have just been joined by a pair of salt spreaders.   Purchased to support a customer that has just landed a snow clearing contract, the trailers will certainly earn their keep if the Scottish weather has a say.

This particular depot serves an enormous area from Inverness, Argyle, Loch Lomond, and the east coast of Scotland, with some high profile customers such as Balfour Beatty, Bear and the Kier Group amongst its clientele.

All this takes a lot of looking after as Rental Manager Thomas Szpak noted.   “There is always going to be the risk of damage to a machine whilst on hire. We use Pirtek because they supply a counter service for our own fitters, a field service for repairs on a customer site and they are a frequent visitor at this depot. When I need to repair a machine, they are always quick and their service is spot on,” he concludes.   “We have £2.75 million of new equipment at this depot that is now out on hire.   That all has to be kept serviced, and Pirtek Dundee is a great help in maintaining the fleet.”
