380 Dinglis for Speedy
UK rental company Speedy, has taken delivery of 380 new Dingli work platforms, representing a £4.3 million investment in its powered access fleet.
The delivery is mostly made up of slab electric scissor lifts from 19ft to 46ft with platform heights up to 15.7 metres. In addition to the scissor lifts the company has taken more 11.2 metre Dingli AMWP11.5- 8100 mast booms and a few 30ft diesel Rough Terrain scissor lifts that will run on HVO diesel. The latest order is in addition to an order for 40 Dingli mast booms and 90 scissor lifts that were delivered in April last year.
Speedy Powered Access was formed in 2020 by a merger of three earlier acquisitions - Prolift, Platform Sales & Hire and Lifterz. See: Speedy Powered Access. The division runs a fleet of around 5,500 self-propelled platforms and 3,500 push around lifts from 10 specialist locations across the UK, including a low carbon ‘Innovation Centre’ in Milton Keynes.
Managing director Andy Briggs said: “Contractors are increasingly choosing low carbon equipment that helps them meet clients’ emissions targets. We are making significant investments to replenish and expand our powered access fleet to boost availability of the sustainable assets they require UK wide. We are already seeing strong demand for the new Dingli machines as we help contractors to work safely, sustainably and efficiently at height.”
Andy Northwood of Dingli UK added: “Our versatile range of machines helps contractors to carry out a variety of projects, from day to day maintenance to major construction projects. It’s a strong vote of confidence that Speedy has chosen to make its second major order with us in the space of a year, as it strives to provide the best assets to its UK wide base of customers.”Visit vertikal.net for more Vertikal Days news
