Mecalac dealer Versatile Equipment expands Kent headquarters in the UK
An expert in equipment rental, sales and servicing, the move will enable significant long-term growth while simultaneously enhancing aftersales for local customers.
With an additional 5,000 square feet of floorspace, the new facility will expand Versatile’s highly regarded sales, marketing and aftersales support capabilities. This will be further boosted by the appointment of five new employees.
Located in Borough Green, Kent, Versatile is renowned by operators across the region. The move will allow for a larger stock capacity, while a new on-site showroom will make it easier to view Mecalac’s latest compact models.
Established in 2003, Versatile Equipment has continued to expand in line with growing demand from customers across the south-east of England. Alongside equipment sales, many clients rent from the business’ fleet of class-leading compact equipment.
Barry Gass, Business Manager at Versatile Equipment, commented: “We are thrilled to be expanding our facilities in Kent, which will benefit customers throughout the south-east. Having a designated showroom will help us to showcase Mecalac’s latest models, while additional employees and space will further enhance the customer experience and our aftersales support provision. With pioneering equipment that combines performance, safety and innovation, we are proud to be a Mecalac dealer.”
Paul Macpherson, Commercial Director at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, added: “Purpose-built and furnished to the highest standard, Versatile’s impressive new facility will prove pivotal to increasing the dealership’s reach across the south-east of England. It’s great to see continued investment in its headquarters, as well as expanding the team, which will undoubtedly drive long-term growth and further increase market share.”
