A-Plant in £15million access investment


A-PLANT has announced a £15 million expansion of its fleet of powered and low level access machines.

The hirer has placed significant orders with six key suppliers for over 720 new machines.

The two largest deals comprise an order with Genie for 274 machines reflecting an investment of £6 million, and JLG has received an order in excess of £4.6 million for 220 machines.

The Genie order comprises Rough Terrain Diesel Scissor Lifts from 26ft to 50ft, Diesel Articulating Booms from 34ft to 80ft and an extensive Electric range, including Self-Propelled Electric Scissor Lifts from 12ft to 40ft and Electric Articulating Booms from 34ft to 45ft.

The JLG order comprises Diesel Booms from 34ft to 85ft, Electric Booms up to 45ft and Electric Scissor Lifts from 12ft to 40ft.

Asif Latief, Marketing Director at A-Plant said, “This investment confirms A-Plant’s access fleet as one of the most up-to-date and efficient anywhere in the UK, as the new machines will replace our older models and the specification of environmentally friendly equipment to meet ‘green’ building requirements has been a key consideration. We now have a fleet of well over 2,000 powered access machines, in addition to thousands of non-mechanical, low level access machines, including self-propelled and push-around models, so we can offer our customers a huge selection across the rang, whatever their access requirements may be.”
