AMT steps up North West growth with £1.1m site

Have your say

The LEEDS_based AMT Group has completed a £1.1m investment on a purpose-built 12,000 sq ft rental facility near Stockport to help speed up its expansion into the North West.

The investment has already created around 25 jobs in the group’s AMT Vehicle Rental division, which now employs 180 staff around the UK.

The Manchester Stockport location is the seventh in AMT’s nationwide network and supports its expansion plans.

Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group, said yesterday: “2015 marked another key stage in our development as we re-located our head office to larger, completely renovated premises in Leeds.

“This latest investment in the North West will further strengthen our position, enabling us to better cover the region and, crucially, to provide rental services for developing markets at both Manchester and Liverpool Airports.”

In March, AMT Group moved from its offices in Matrix Court, in Beeston, near Leeds, into a new 52,000 sq ft headquarters on a two-acre site on Armley Road representing a £2m investment.
