A firm which provides self-drive road sweepers is celebrating the first year anniversary at its Barnsley depot after a period of sustained growth.

Go Plant Ltd moved into larger premises at the Carlton Industrial Estate in Barnsley last summer.

The firm has invested £850,000 in specialist operated hire vehicles and appointed six new drivers, bringing its total to 34. The company has a fleet of 42 vehicles, including road sweepers and a specialist gully emptier.

John Wild, regional manager, said: “The enhanced facilities and larger premises means we’re well placed to grow organically.”
