New depot brings Layher north

Layher has opened a new depot in the north of England, representing the first time that the company will bring its full range of services to the region.

The new facility is located in Eggborough in North Yorkshire and adds to Layher’s head office in Letchworth and Scottish base in Livingston.

Sean Pike, Layher’s UK managing director, said: “Our scaffolding, access and weather protection range and a full demonstration facility are key features of the new Eggborough site. This means not only being able to showcase our equipment but also to transport it more quickly to customers in a key part of the country, often accommodating short demand requirements.”

Layher says its choice of location enhances Mr. Pike’s last point, with good access east to west via the M62 and north to south with the A1M. The site also sits in close proximity to major industrial locations, including local power generation facilities.

Heath Brown, operations manager at the new depot, said: “This is an exciting time in the company’s development, both across the construction sector and within industry. I am totally confident of our ability to address a wide range of access and protection requirements from the new depot – building on our successful installations that we can already point to in the region.”

Mr. Pike added: “We see this as an important step forward and one which we believe will be acknowledged by all our customers in the area.  The development sits alongside our continuing commitment to product innovation and not only reflects our success in the past, but makes a clear statement about our confident outlook for the future.”
