A new depot in Gloucester is the latest development in SHB Hire's current expansion programme.

The new depot, located in central Gloucester, is a 5 acre site allowing the current depot to relocate to a facility which will enable the opportunity for growth and development of its workshops and bodyshops.

The new depot aims to be in full operation within 6-9 months, and due to the significant increase in size it will be creating extra jobs within the local community.

As part of an expansion a new body shop at SHB’s Thetford depot in Norfolk, along with expansions to its Ashford and Newcastle depots. This expansion aligns with future plans to develop further bodyshop and fabrication facilities at many other depots throughout 2016/17. 

Paul Street, SHB Hire managing director, said: “The purchase of the new Gloucester depot alongside the development of our bodyshop facilities really outlines our aims and desire to continually expand and truly offer a great service on a national basis. It will enable us to push and improve the key aspects of our business that include a swift, easy, and cost effective manner of service”. 

“The local community in and around the Gloucester area will be able to benefit from an increase in jobs following our latest expansion and the fact that this will be our biggest depot across the whole of the UK brings a significant amount of excitement with it, and with further plans in place for the business, it does not stop here.”
