Nationwide Platforms lifted by latest fleet investment

POWERED access hire specialist Nationwide Platforms has announced it has become the first UK company to invest in the Bronto Skylift S35EM.

The machine can reach working heights of up to 35m and is mounted on a Scania L320 cab. This puts the model on the same level as other vehicles travelling city streets, with the aim of increasing road safety with improved visibility.

Equipped with a fifth generation Bronto+ control system and a resistive touch screen, the S35EM is said to allow for ‘stable, precise movements’. To further increase safety, the machine is provided with a crushing-hazard protection for the operator.

Glyn Brearley, business director, procurement and training at Nationwide Platforms, said, “We’re always listening to customer feedback and looking for ways to improve the service we provide while staying abreast of cutting-edge technology. This investment will ensure Nationwide Platforms’ clients have access to cutting-edge machinery that makes inner city work safer and more efficient.

“Bronto Skylift’s impressive track record chimes well with Nationwide Platforms’ own focus on customer satisfaction and safety, and we can’t wait to see the improvements these machines will bring to the industry.”
