Groundforce expands operations in the Midlands

29 Feb

To accommodate continued expansion and growth across its divisions, Groundforce has opened a new ‘super’ depot in Derby, which will incorporate four of the company’s businesses.

The new 4.3 acre site includes, Groundforce Shorco, U Mole, Major Projects and Groundforce Bridge and will offer customers a new, one-stop-shop facility and a faster delivery service across The Midlands and North Wales.

Located just south of the city centre, the new Groundforce depot is conveniently situated close to major road links servicing the region, including the M1 motorway. 

Alan Cronin, operations director for Groundforce said:

“We recognised that we needed to provide contractors operating in the region a wider portfolio of products together with fast delivery times, this new and much larger site in Derby will provide that service and continue to position us as the ‘supplier of choice’ for the construction industry.” 

In total, Groundforce now has 17 depots across the UK and Ireland, providing the most comprehensive range of equipment and solutions to the construction industry, from the most innovative propping and excavation solutions and piling equipment, trenchless technology, and pipe testing and flow control products, to temporary bridging and site safety products and equipment.
