HSS Hire expands in Wales with new customer distribution centre

Published:  14 July, 2016

HSS Hire Group has opened its largest ever customer distribution centre in Wales, creating up to 65 new jobs over the next three years.

The new 49,000sq ft facility in Treforest, South Wales will join the company’s national network of distribution centres, and 288 trading local branches across the UK and Ireland, including one each in Bridgend, Newport, Carmarthen, Merthyr Tydfil, Blackwood, Swansea and two in Cardiff.

The move is part of HSS Hire’s plan to significantly expand services to businesses across South Wales this year, creating 32 permanent jobs immediately.

Facilities at Treforest will include a 10,000 litre fuel store, an equipment wash and workshops staffed by specialist technicians to ensure the highest quality and maintenance standards across all equipment, as well dedicated storage and truck-loading areas.

John Gill, chief executive at HSS Hire Group, said: “We are continually evolving our network to ensure equipment availability and to drive operational efficiency. The Treforest customer distribution centre will make daily deliveries to ensure tools and equipment are readily available for local businesses. This investment is another big step in delivering the best service we can to our customer base in Wales, and we’re thrilled to be investing in its future.”
