Cadent and A-Plant have struck an equipment hire deal.
As part of the agreement, the latter will provide the gas distribution network – which has operations in Leicester and Coventry – with mechanised plant, welfare accommodation, fencing and barriers, access equipment and generators.
The equipment will be mainly used by Cadent’s repair teams and will also be accessible to all of its operational teams.
In a commitment to the deal, Warrington-based A-Plant has invested £1.5m in new machinery. This includes commissioning an entire production line at JCB.
