As part of an ongoing expansion of its local network across the UK, Actavo is extending its Gateshead, Dundee, Manchester and Glasgow branches.

Alongside Actavo’s other depots in Scotland (Edinburgh) and the North (Teesside), the expanded branches will offer a wide range of specialised scaffolding, light access, temporary roofing and fencing, building equipment and fall prevention load deck safety systems.

Gary Johnstone, regional manager for Scotland and the north, said: “Through our branch expansions, we’ve hired a number of additional team members, which is a vote of confidence in the local economy across Scotland and the north of England. Our Hire & Sales customer base ranges from sole traders to national contractors, a broad spectrum that helps define who we are.

“The Scottish construction sector remains buoyant with major government transport and energy projects planned for this year, as well as the housebuilding sector that continues to grow in confidence. With our expanded branch presence, we will be best-placed to deliver the support and product solutions this sector needs.”
