BOTHWELL-headquartered MEP Hire has taken delivery of 150 Genie GS-1432m micro scissors lifts.

The move forms part of the company’s plans to build up its fleet of compact access equipment across its 11 UK branches.

“Thanks to their lightweight construction of just 900kg and compact footprint, Genie GS-1432m micro scissors are a good offering for mechanical and electrical customers working on suspended flooring,” said Andy Menham, product and sector development manager for MEP Hire.

“MEP Hire partner with Genie due to the impressive build quality of their machines. Robust, reliable and efficient, they are also incredibly easy to operate, allowing users to complete tasks safely and efficiently.”

Genie GS-1432m micro scissor lifts are designed to offer versatile access at low-level heights. Both the GS-1432m and GS-1932m micro scissors are compact enough to drive through doorways with standard fixed guardrails, and lightweight enough to be transported in standard elevators.

GS-1432m micro scissors feature Genie’s fully-sealed AC electric drive. Genie said E-Drive is four times more efficient than traditional hydraulic drive.

MEP Hire, part of the VP Group since 2007, has more than 200 employees.
