Relocation of Dundee, Perth & Cupar Depots

8 March 2012

Nixon Hire will soon open a new 2.5 acre site on Longtown Road, off the Kingsway, Dundee. The new facility will be a vast improvement to our existing site on the Dryburgh Industrial Estate with far bigger yard, workshops, offices and full paint shop facility. We plan to merge our existing Dundee, Perth and Cupar depots into the new site at Dundee in May. Hire contracts at existing depots will be transferred to the new Dundee depot with minimal disruption to service. Nearly all staff will relocate to the new facility at Dundee.

Due to the close proximity of the three existing depots, of which, Dundee and Cupar were acquisitions, it made sense to merge together into one large depot with full workshop and painting facilities as we had outgrown all three existing depots. During the past year, we have increased business by nearly 40% between the three existing depots and have outgrown each depot.

The new facility will be split into three distinct divisions, namely plant and tool hire, site accommodation hire and portable toilet hire. Each division will have its own dedicated facilities and management structure enabling us to undertake major repairs to plant and full repairs and refurbishment to our site accommodation.

Once established in the new facility, we will hold a customer open day to allow us to demonstrate how the new structure will improve our service offering further in the Tayside & Fife regions by holding larger stocks of equipment in one central location with improved facilities. Further details will be announced soon.

In the meantime, we assure you that disruption to service will be minimal during the transition to our new premises.
