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 substantial financial commitment underlines Merritts dedication to innovation and expansion, solidifying our position as one of the largest and most respected companies in our sector.

Founded in 1922 and Merritts recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, and a reputation for excellence, this investment ensures we will remain at the forefront of the machinery moving and installation industry.

Commenting, 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.”

This strategy of sustained investment reflects the company’s dedication to providing top-tier solutions for businesses across various industries.
