Paris-depot1FRANCE: Specialist UK hire company Andrews Sykes has opened a new depot in Chambly, about 40 minutes north of Paris city centre. 

By having a presence near Paris, Andrews Sykes says it will be able to guarantee a shorter response time to customers in and around the capital city. The company’s Lille depot, which opened in 2013, also serves to satisfy demand in northern regions, including Calais, Picardie, Normandy and Champagne-Ardenne. As a result of opening the new depot, Andrews Sykes says it is now in a position to reach clients within four hours of initial contact.

The company’s hire fleet has been increased to support the growth of its business in Paris. This includes the addition of new portable air conditioning units, heaters, chillers and boilers. Sales, engineering and delivery staffing levels have also been increased and new vehicles added to its fleet.
