Andrews Sykes expands Kent presence with Ashford relocation

We are delighted to announce the relocation of our Ashford depot following a sustained period of success in the area. The move is symptomatic of our continual development as a business and provides us with an excellent opportunity to further capitalise on the growth we have enjoyed in Kent over the last 40 years.

The site, situated on the Henwood Industrial Estate, is now officially in operation and has been selected with a view to accommodating future progress.

A surge in demand for our services across Kent has necessitated this substantial investment and will put us in an even better position to support clients throughout the region. Our new depot is more than 50% bigger in size than the original site and fitted with a modern workshop and dedicated testing areas. Additionally, the new premises offer a much larger yard and extra storage space to satisfy increased fleet holding capacities.

The depot is adjacent to the M20 motorway and guarantees responsive coverage to customers located throughout Kent and East Sussex. We stock a full range of equipment for hire from our Ashford depot including air conditioning units, heaters, boilers, chillers, dehumidifiers, ventilation fans and pumps.

This exciting development follows the opening of a depot in West Sussex last year and is part of a wider commitment to enhancing our presence in the South East.

Jim Laybourne, Group Operations Support Director, said: “Opening a larger facility in Ashford will strengthen our market position in Kent and beyond and is a clear indication of the company’s progress in recent years. After a prolonged period of success both regionally and nationally, now is the perfect time for expansion as we look to take advantage of future opportunities.”
