Hiab has opened a Scottish sales and service depot in Cumbernauld, Glasgow following the acquisition of local dealer Logan Inglis.

The opening of Hiab’s own depot in Scotland is a key part of its strategic plan to get closer to its customers and provide services and solutions in a partnership approach.

"This purchase has, from day one, been very much part of our ‘route to market strategy’ which we embarked on in 2017," says Ian Mitchell, Hiab director/dealer manager, UK and Ireland. "Starting with our acquisition of Walkers in the East Midlands last year, (and) the opening recently of our new Hiab London Depot in Bishops Stortford and Hiab Dudley locations, this acquisition (fulfills) our strategy of getting closer to our customers to Scotland."

Hiab has purchased the Logan Inglis business in Cumbernauld and has secured the current site on a long-term lease.

All current Logan Inglis staff have transferred across to Hiab following the acquisition, with a separate agreement in place to retain the services of current owner Robert Morrison during the transition period.

The site will be subject to significant investment and improvement over the next 12 months.

"Our customers in Scotland will benefit from the Cumbernauld site being part of a larger Hiab-owned national network of both installation and service facilities that can meet their needs both in Scotland and further afield in the UK," adds Mitchell.

Hiab Scotland will offer the full range of Hiab loader cranes and demountable products, and the full suite of service offerings including R&M packages, repairs, servicing, parts supply and load testing certification, as well as bespoke and tailored service arrangements.
