New Depot – LGS Dudley
LGS is proud to announce the opening of a new location in Birmingham, the Depot will be run by Dave Hickinbottom – a popular and experienced manager with a huge depth of knowledge about lifting products and the region he will be serving.
As LGS has expanded so has the geographical area in which it trades, indeed it is this wider activity that has driven the expansion to places further afield. This will bring the total number of branches to 9, each one with a unique solution to the requirements of their local area.
The current economic climate may be uncertain, but we are confident that the sound business philosophy that LGS employ, matched with the experience and drive of the new team can only lead to further success and growth.
