New SHB Hire site is biggest yet

The five-acre site is located on the Ashville Trading Estate in Gloucester and is almost double the size of SHB’s previous Gloucester depot. Fully operational, the site has enabled a wide range of tasks to be carried out on a much bigger scale and is already benefiting customers from a reduction in downtime on areas such as maintenance, body repairs, and vehicle refurbishment.

The site features separate LCV and HGV spray booths installed along with the maintenance bays and equipment to service LCV and HGVs. 

SHB’s operations director – Rick Taylor believes that the additional facilities will have a major positive impact on customers not only in the South West region but nationally.

“Our business expansion programme is fully customer orientated, and over the past couple of years we have expanded the facilities at a number of our depots across the UK. The purchase of the Gloucester site is a prime example of our desire as a business to continually grow to meet customer demands and minimise one of the biggest issue that fleet operators face, which is vehicle downtime,” he commented.
