Elliott, part of the Algeco Scotsman Group, world leader in modular space and secure storage solutions has announced a £20+ million investment to grow its range of portable buildings and accessories available for hire. This will enable it to meet a rising demand for temporary classrooms to meet the national shortfall in teaching space and site complexes for new construction projects across the UK.

The fleet investment will increase the number of modular buildings and portable cabins available to hire and a growing number of accessories as part of its 360° Service range.

Elliott CEO, Lee Jon Newman, said “Our customers have told us they wanted to hire more than just an empty building so we now provide them with a full turnkey solution whereby they can hire all of the items they need, such as office furniture and fire extinguishers, in just one phone call. With 360° Service our customers will no longer have the hassle, dead time and cost of organising and managing multiple suppliers during a project set up.”

In addition to the expansion of its hire buildings Elliott is also acquiring 20 new delivery vehicles to service its customers at hire branches from the south of England to the north of Scotland.

The new Hiab delivery vehicles will enable Elliott to respond quickly to customer’s requirements with some products available for next day delivery whilst ensuring the continued industry leading delivery and installation experience.

The Elliott product range is very diverse and includes solutions such as temporary classrooms, open-plan offices, welfare facilities, construction site complexes and portable toilets.
