North of Scotland expansion for AB2000 Ltd

Opened in 2013, AB2000 Ltd’s Inverness Depot has recently had to relocate to larger premises. Expansion of its plant fleet and significant new contracts in the area have forced the company to move to a new yard where it will build workshops and offices.

One of Scotland’s largest independent plant hire companies, AB2000 opened its first northern depot in late 2013 near Inverness. Shortly afterwards it acquired Ellon Plant Ltd and the two companies outgrew the Aberdeen Depot, moving to a new larger depot in Ellon near Aberdeen. The company now employs over 60 people in the north of Scotland and since 2013 has been steadily increasing its customer base in the area.

AB2000’s Northern Area Manager, David Christie, said: “Due to recent growth and significant new contracts in and around the area we have outgrown our depot in Inverness. Finding larger premises was a must to efficiently service our operations here in the north of Scotland. Our new larger premises are located in Nairn and will have purpose built workshops and offices.

“Recently we have increased the plant fleet of our northern depots and new purchases include 120 Roller’s, 9T Forward Tipping Dumpers, five Cat 730 Dumpers and a new HIAB lorry. We are always looking to take on all kinds of experienced plant operators based from our Nairn and Aberdeen locations.”
