Robert Purvis Plant Hire launches new Material Handling division

14th March 2022

Robert Purvis Plant Hire are proud to announce the launch of our new Material Handling division. We are now a main dealer for Hyundai, offering sales, hire, repair and service.

It will trade under the name Robert Purvis Plant Hire (Material Handling), sitting alongside its existing hire department. Three new jobs have been created, with potential for more engineering and managerial roles in the longer term.

Over twenty years ago, The Purvis Group had a material handling business – Cartmore Lift Trucks – which current Managing Director, Craig Purvis, spent time working in as part of his training. Now, the opportunity has arisen to re-establish a material handling division which will be headed up by James Purvis and offers a range of machines from 1T to 25T with the options of gas, diesel or electric.

This new division will allow us to utilise our experienced staff to help and offer assistance. It will also allow us to diversify and grow our customer base, creating greater stability in challenging markets, whilst also complementing our existing customer base, some of whom have been seeking industrial forklift hire.

The Material Handling division will be based at The Purvis Group’s new headquarters at New Thistle House, Lochgelly.
