SHB Hire has opened its biggest ever UK depot in Gloucester. The group’s new site on the Ashville Trading Estate in Gloucester, which was purchased in January, stands at 5 acres - double the size of its previous depot in the town.

The SHB teams based in Gloucester have now moved into the fully-operational site. Operations director Rick Taylor, who says the move is part of the vehicle hire and management company’s expansion programme, said that over the past few months the site has undergone an extensive fit-out including LCV and HGV spray booths alongside 20 general maintenance bays and equipment.

It also boasts a large shot-blasting booth capable of accommodating most HGVs. He added: “We have the capability to almost double the workload from the previous site.”
