West Suffolk: Emmitt Plant completes Bristol Ames rebrand

EMMITT Plant, part of the Suffolk-based SEH Group, has completed the redevelopment and rebranding of the former Bristol Ames Plant site at Wattisfield, between Bury St Edmunds and Diss.

The Bristol Ames name has been retained since the plant hire business was acquired by Emmitt nearly 10 years ago but the brand had now been replaced by the Emmitt identity.

Work on the redevelopment began in May, although the depot has continued to run on a “business as usual” basis during the building work.

An open day for customers and the general public is being held on Friday, December 16, from noon.

Area manager Luke Findlay said: “We are looking forward to working in our new workshops & offices. The open day will give our customers a chance to view our new workshops & shop front.

The new facility has been based on the blueprint of Emmitt’s successful depot at Corby in Northamptonshire.
