TEREX has confirmed an agreement to acquire Platform Service & Repair Limited (PSR) from IAPS Group, with all current PSR employees transferring to the Terex Genie UK team.

Terex said it will continue to honour all existing PSR contracts for maintenance, inspection, breakdown repair and engineer cover.

PSR was already an authorised service provider of the Genie brand of aerial work platforms in the UK.

Matt Skipworth, EMEAR service solutions manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms, explained, “In a year that marks 50 years of the Genie brand ‘building the future,’ we are proud to provide our UK customers with an ideal combination of resources in a one-stop-shop.

“By responding to the needs of our customers, we have further enhanced our ability to provide them with the solutions they require. This, in addition, will help us win in the marketplace.

“Backed by a successful 15-year history of delivering service support to customers throughout the UK, PSR brings together the expert technical skills required to maintain virtually any brand of powered access equipment.

“In addition, PSR provides the broad geographical coverage end users and rental companies need to support their machine uptime in the field. Our new UK customer support organisation will offer the notable advantages of enhancing the efficiency of fleet maintenance and simplifying procedures to help save time and reduce costs.”

Steve Couling, managing director of IAPS Group added, “The Genie UK team are retaining the PSR team’s expertise in customer care. This means that existing PSR customers should have complete confidence that they are in safe hands.”
