National equipment and tool hire firm Speedy has launched a new Regional Service Centre in Swindon to expand the specialist construction hire services it provides to businesses across the region. 

The new 8,500 sq ft centre at Kembrey Place, Kembrey Street, will double the size of its previous depot on Cheney Manor Industrial Estate and the business expects to grow the site’s workforce as it continues to expand its service offering.

The move comes as plans are lodged to build up to 8,000 homes, two high rise apartment developments, landmark office accommodation and new highway improvements across Swindon, with each set to buoy the local construction market.

Building firms and contractors in the region will be able to access the firm’s 350 most popular products through Capital Commitment, Speedy’s four-hour delivery promise, with click and collect services available via its app or website.

Alongside offering tool and equipment hire, the centre will also introduce Speedy’s portfolio of lifting equipment to Swindon for the first time to help meet local demand from contractors.

The new Regional Service Centre forms part of a nationwide investment drive by Speedy to enhance and standardise its depot network, with more than 200 sites currently located across the UK and Ireland.

Dylan Owen, Regional Director for the South West at Speedy, said: “Our investment in Swindon comes as a number of major schemes edge closer to breaking ground and local contractors are gearing up to develop the local housing, infrastructure and commercial space as the area builds for the future.

“The move represents our commitment to the town and to ensuring businesses can access the right tools, equipment and advice they need to deliver projects safely, on time and on budget. We understand the importance of sustainability too, and we look forward to supporting our customers through our portfolio of green and eco-friendly  products, including a range of rechargeable cordless tools powered by the latest battery technology, all available on our four-hour delivery promise.”

In line with current lockdown restrictions, Speedy depots remain open for call, click and collect services – with Capital Commitment, its four-hour delivery promise, operating as normal.

Speedy is the UK's leading hire provider. The business works closely with its customers and suppliers to develop the tools, equipment and services, while ensuring safety and sustainability is front of mind.
