Company to unveil many new welfare and site set-up innovations at Edinburgh show later this month

GARIC, one of the UK’s largest welfare and site equipment providers, will be showcasing an array of new products and equipment upgrades at ScotPlant 2018, which is being held at the Royal Highland Centre, in Edinburgh, from 20–21 April.

The company will have an extensive selection of welfare, environmental protection and mobile lighting products on display at the show, including: Armadillo welfare units, turbine dust-suppression units and Generac tower lights.


According to Garic, their award-winning, eco-efficient, 12V solar-powered Armadillo towable welfare units are robust enough for even the most remote and demanding of environments. Complete with canteen and toilet, the Armadillo has many additional security features including hydraulic isolation switches, fully secure window shutters and five-point deadlocking systems.

Garic’s turbine dust-suppression units are capable of spraying an ultrafine mist at 130 miles/h and have been designed to eradicate airborne particle emissions at demolition and construction sites, quarries, landfill and coal mines.

Built to withstand rugged environments, the company’s advanced solar hybrid Generac tower lights are designed to reduce operator interactions and CO2 emissions, and use up to six times less fuel than conventional models.

Visitors to Garic’s stand will also be able to see demonstrations of the company’s most popular hire products, including welfare vans, solar loos, drying rooms, boot washers and a newly introduced range of transportable, stacking, steel bunded fuel bowsers.

The vast majority of Garic’s products now benefit from the addition of integral smart technology systems for the remote monitoring of fuel, water and waste. This new i-SITE technology, which was developed and launched late last year, significantly reduces downtime and servicing costs.

The company has also recently opened a new depot at Whitehill Industrial Estate, in Bathgate, West Lothian. Having supplied welfare and site set-up products to customers throughout Scotland for many years, Garic say the new base will make for an even more responsive service with quicker delivery times for their rental products.

Managing director Colin Hotchkiss commented: ‘We have completed some very significant contracts in Scotland recently and felt the time was right to establish a permanent base.

‘Over the past 12 months we’ve made significant strides in delivering our business strategy, which has resulted in growth across all areas of the company, and we’ll continue to invest in our people, fleet, depots and transport infrastructure to support this.

‘We already have one of the largest and fastest-growing welfare fleets in the UK, and our new Scottish depot gives us another great outlet we can be proud of.’
