New home for Story Plant in Scotland

On Wednesday the Story Plant team in Scotland marked the formal opening of their new home in Salsburgh, North Lanarkshire alongside key clients, suppliers, and industry colleagues.

The new location will allow Story Plant to continue developing its provision of specialist operated road rail vehicles, haulage, and POS management throughout Scotland.

The facility, which was originally built for use as a road rail plant depot, has been renovated to unite all functions of the Scotland team, who were previously split between two depots in Blantyre and Bonnyrigg. The new depot includes a state-of-the-art workshop facility to maintain Story Plant’s fleet, and a newly installed test track which will be utilised for machine testing and colleague training purposes.

Emma Porter, Chair of Story Plant said, “Today has been a great opportunity to welcome our clients and supply chain to our new depot, and showcase our people, fleet, facilities and culture. The event has gone really well and we’re proud of the facility that we have here in Salsburgh.”

Ian Purdham, Story Plant Managing Director said, “It has been a great day at the official opening of our Salsburgh depot, which shows Story Plant’s commitment to supporting Scotland’s Railway and the future of our business in Scotland. It has been great to welcome key clients and members of our supply chain to demonstrate the wide range of plant machinery and services we offer.”

Story Plant also operates depots in Carlisle, Normanton, and Birmingham, and employs a team of over 100 in Scotland and a total of over 325 colleagues across the UK. It delivers award-winning operated road rail vehicles for rail projects across Scotland for a wide range of clients working on the rail infrastructure.
