Protect your assets with RS Connect
Your assets are one of the key elements needed to complete jobs on time and to the exact requirements. Having a reliable fleet of plant vehicles and machinery to call upon is therefore important. Sadly, asset theft has been increasing. The Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) states that every year, more than £100 million+ of plant is stolen in the United Kingdom.
