UK powered access company, Star Platforms, has invested more than £4m on 250 additional scissor lifts, boom lifts and low level access platforms; boosting their total fleet size to over 1000 in their third year of trading.
Included in this investment are new additions to the Star Platforms fleet. Two new models from Skyjack (the SJ4740 electric scissor lift and the SJ30 ARJE articulating boom lift) and the HR28 Hybrid boom lift from NiftyLift.
Richard Miller, Joint Managing Director, Star Platforms said: “Skyjack and NiftyLift have received most of our capital expenditure for 2017. Not only do both companies offer a good commercial deal, but more importantly, they are very easy to do business with. Their products have received excellent user acceptance from our customers and they are the manufacturers of choice within our engineering department due to the ease in dealing with both companies’ after sales support teams.”
Some of the 250 new products have already been received by Star Platforms with the remainder of the orders being delivered between now through to August 2017 to ensure stock levels are sufficient to support customer demands.
Richard continues: “We anticipate 2017 being a very busy year and we need to ensure we have a modern fleet and the continued capacity to support our loyal customer base.”
