Speedy invests further £3 million in powered access fleet

SPEEDY has added 100 new boom and scissor lifts to its UK fleet as part of the company’s powered access investment strategy.

The £3 million investment in new Skyjack equipment includes articulated and telescopic boom lifts. Models include the diesel-powered all-terrain SJ46AJ and SJ66T, and the all-electric SJ30ARJE, which have a working heights of 15.93m, 22.12m and 10.82m respectively.

Speedy has also added more Skyjack SJ6826 and SJ6832 rough terrain scissor lifts, which provide a working height range from 9.75m to 11.58m.

The hire giant had recently expanded its powered access offering with 130 new Dingli electric scissor lifts and 50 Niftylift hybrid boom units.

Andy Briggs, MD at Speedy Powered Access, said, “Our new Skyjack models form part of our strategy to build a comprehensive range of powered access solutions available to contractors UK-wide. Our continued fleet investment ensures that we have a core range of machines to meet all types of project requirements, from indoor installation and maintenance to construction. Our continued focus on investment in electric and hybrid assets where possible is also helping contractors to access sustainable equipment that can help them to meet clients’ emissions targets.

“Speedy Powered Access is going from strength-to-strength since its inception last year, with customers valuing our nationwide service proposition for powered access, while receiving the insights and expertise they’d typically expect of a specialist local provider.”
