IAPS Group moves into new premises to prepare for expansion
Published: 31 August, 2015
IAPS Group has moved into new premises to facilitate the next phase in its growth, including its entry of the van-mounted boom market.
The company has moved into larger headquarters on the Hortonwood business park in Telford, Shropshire.
The three-acre site, which includes a yard, offices, workshops and a spare parts warehouse, is more than double the size of the previous premises.
The workshops will have 5t and 16t lifting-capacity overhead cranes, along with four 4t vehicle lifts. This plant will be used in the mounting of Aldercote booms to panel vans.
Steve Couling, Managing Director of IAPS Group, said: ‘The new premises provide our people with a great working environment and room for us to continue to grow.
‘Our investment in the workshop cranes and vehicle lifts also demonstrates how serious we are about becoming a major player in the van-mounted boom lift sector. All the building blocks are in place ready for the launch of the exciting new product line later this year.'
The move into new premises reflects IAPS Group's growth since the merger of IPS and APS in 2013. It now has four divisions: APS, which sells new and Approved Used equipment; IPS, a leading supplier of replacement parts; PSR, providing service, maintenance, refurbishment, repair and emergency breakdown cover; and Outriggerpads, which provides a range of spreader plates and crane mats.
Along with the new headquarters in Telford, the group has offices and workshops in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire and Wishaw, Scotland.
