Tool hire company Brandon Hire has opened three more branches in Scotland, bringing the number of branches in the country to 14.
In 2006, Brandon Hire became part of Wolseley UK, and is now one of UK's leading tool hire providers to the construction and maintenance sectors. Brandon Hire has 260 branches throughout the UK.
Brandon Hire's newly-opened branches are located in Greenock, Edinburgh and Coatbridge. Further branches are planned in Elgin, Perth and Paisley.
The new openings are part of a £500,000 investment to support Brandon Hire's drive to boost its presence in Scotland.
This investment by Brandon Hire will see its coverage extend to 85% of Scotland's population, offering a range of specialist equipment, in particular pipe and lifting equipment hire.
This investment also marks the launch of Brandon Hire's toilet hire service in Scotland, based at the Coatbridge branch.
Brandon Hire regional director Ian McLaughlin said 'This is just the start of our planned investment in Scotland. Our aim is to grow our presence and establish us as a major provider of tool, lifting, pipe and toilet hire in Scotland.'
