Westport Equipment, based near Dublin at its Dunboyne Depot, was founded on an ethos of supplying and hiring the best products and equipment to its customers in the construction, renewables and utilities sectors, backed by a wealth of experience, in-depth stock holding and excellent customer service. Westport is an established supplier of access, shoring, groundwork, and temporary fencing equipment and works closely with key brands to ensure it continues to offer the best.

SpanSet and Westport Equipment are delighted to announce Westport will be the main stockist of a range of SpanSet Height Safety equipment for customers in Ireland.
