Gap Hire Solutions posted another year of positive annual results, recording annual turnover of £157.7 million, an increase from last year’s £143.3 million.
GAP sees its diversification in to new areas of the equipment hire industry as key to its success. With the addition of new divisions, including Survey and Safety, Non-Mechanical Plant and Welfare Services to its already successful Plant and Tools operation, GAP has been able to increase its share of the market.
With over 130 depots nationwide, and a total workforce of 1,502, GAP is the UK’s largest independent hire company. “This year, we will probably grow by about 10 per cent,” declares Chairman, Danny O’Neil. “We don’t think our [profit] margins will deteriorate…The employee numbers will follow the growth in turnover and profit really.”
Founded in 1969 by Gordon Anderson, GAP is now run by Joint Managing Directors Douglas and Iain Anderson. With 8 divisions encompassing over 130 depots, GAP have developed from a single depot in Glasgow to a truly nationwide organisation.
