Mather+Stuart continues rapid national expansion

Mather+Stuart Power Solutions, the temporary power equipment division of A-Plant, is set to continue its national network expansion with the launch of a new service centre in Norwich this spring.

Following its acquisition by A-Plant in 2016, Mather+Stuart has experienced a period of rapid growth, opening nine new centres in just two years.

The latest site, which is scheduled to open its doors in East Anglia this May, comes on the back of new openings in Scotland in February 2018 and the South East in November last year.

Director of Mather+Stuart, Gary Orton, said the company now has a presence in most regions around the UK.

He said: “Before A-Plant acquired Mather+Stuart in 2016, we had just one branch in Wigan, Standish.

“Over the past two years we have been steadily growing our national network and now have nine service centres from Scotland to Southampton and Aberdeen to Avonmouth.

“Launching a tenth centre in Norwich means that we are well on our way to owning a site in every region around the country.”

The company’s rapid expansion has seen its fleet more than triple in size, from 650 generators in January 2016 to over 2,000 generators in March 2018. During this period almost £2m has also been invested in fuel tanks and there has been a further £1m investment in distribution.

Mather+Stuart will continue to invest in its fleet throughout 2018, to ensure it remains the UK’s market leader.

Gary said: “This year we will be making a multi-million pound investment in new equipment.

“We continually update our fleet to ensure that our customers hire reliable, safe, environmentally friendly equipment, that incorporates the latest technology.”

Mather+Stuart was founded in 1992. The company originally focused on the rental of welding machines and associated equipment from a single site in Wigan, Standish.

Today, Mather+Stuart specialise in the hire of temporary power equipment, including generators up to 1250kVA, hybrid power, fuel tanks, fuel management and cabling and distribution from service centres all across the country.
