Go Plant is based in Martinfield, off Swallowfields, and supplies operated and self-drive specialist road sweepers and refuse vehicles.

It opened its doors in late January 2014, but expanded quickly and soon moved.

Regional manager Andy Brumell told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We launched with two vehicles on a derelict site and soon found that another more appropriate site was available to buy.

“Following significant investment, this refurbished site is one of the best regional service centres in Go Plant.

“We have also been able to invest in new sweepers and have a fleet of over 50 operated sweepers and a further 25 self-drive vehicles all within the last two and a half years.”

“We were delighted that Mr Shapps visited our site.

“His visit lasted just under an hour, and after a tour of the service centre and a showcase of some of the service centre fleet, which includes some of the most advanced road sweeping vehicles available, he was introduced to representatives from Go Plant’s head office.

Business development manager Susan Brumell has been responsible for a number of key contract wins and added: “We work hard on setting service standards in a competitive industry.

“We have a central service team that obtains and maintains compliance standards across the whole company that give our customers the confidence in what Go Plant offers.”

Managing director Paul Langham said: “It was a pleasure to meet Mr Shapps.

“We were delighted to introduce him to our WGC team and tell him more about our future plans.

“The experience [at the WGC site] has been a great success and we are now working on expanding in the south west, which will give us the final piece of our national coverage plan and make Go Plant one of the few national sweeper operators in the country.”
