A WARRINGTON-BASED plant, tool and equipment hire company, has made further investments in its powered access fleet, cementing its position as one of the industry’s market leaders.
Over the past three years, A-Plant Powered Access, which is located at Birchwood has invested over £40m in new innovative equipment and since the company’s acquisition of Plantfinder UK, last year, its fleet has increased to over 4,500 units.
A-Plant’s extensive powered access fleetholding is hired by customers from various sectors, including construction, engineering, events and manufacturing amongst others. Its booms and scissor lifts are used for a wide range of jobs including roofing, renovations, the removal of scaffolding and cladding from buildings, as well as for general facilities management.
Ian Jordan, Managing Director of General Equipment at A-Plant said on-going investment has enabled the company to win a plethora of major construction contracts over the past 12 months.
He said: “We have managed to win a number of exciting contracts this year and I believe it is the quality of our equipment, coupled with our truly national presence that has attracted such a high calibre of clients.
“Our access fleet now has an average age of under four years, we have 38 service centres across the country and our latest products are even safer, more productive, greener and more sustainable.
“Plus, Winning ‘IPAF Training Centre of the Year’ at the International Awards for Powered Access last year has also provided a boost and helped to showcase the importance we place on safety.”
A-Plant will continue to invest in its powered access fleet throughout 2018.
