Merritt’s makes over £1m of investments in 2023

Heavy machinery moving and industrial storage specialists, Joseph Merritt Group PLC (Merritts) has embarked on another year of significant investment.

Since January 2023, the company has invested over £1 million in new machinery and equipment, with further expenditure of £500k already planned for 2024.

This year’s investments include the purchase of four new Scania tractor units, two new step-frame semi-trailers with beavertail ramp systems, and the acquisition of additional warehouse space to expand its industrial storage offering to over 100,000 square feet.

In 2024, Merritts will be expanding their fleet of crane trailers, with the addition of a FASSI F990RA.2.24 and a FASSI F820RA.2.24, installed onto Nooteboom trailers.

This investment by the company, which was founded in 1922 and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, ensures they will remain at the forefront of the machinery moving and installation industry.

James Merritt, co-owner, said: “Over the past 18 months we have witnessed a significant increase in the requirement for turnkey factory relocation projects, with customers wishing to expand their facilities to enhance their manufacturing capabilities.

“Our ongoing investment will enable us to continue delivering exceptional services to our clients while further strengthening our position as leaders in the machinery moving and industrial storage sector.”
