Speedy Services Invests £4 million in Skyjack Scissor Lifts

Following a huge £7 million investment into its power division, Speedy Services, Oswestry, Shropshire, UK, announces it also has doubled the size of its electric scissor lift fleet by investing £4 million in new Skyjack 19-foot SJIII 3219 and 26-foot SJIII 3226 units. The scissor lifts have been ordered for the company’s network of depot centres across the UK, reinforcing its commitment to deliver access to rental equipment during busy summer months.

Electric scissor lifts are proving to be an increasingly popular alternative to powered access towers and present a number of safety and sustainability benefi ts for those who are required to work safely at a
height. The SJIII 3219 and SJIII 3226 both feature:

 

• Drivability at full height
• 90o steering with zero inside turning radius for optimum manoeuvrability
• Dual holding brakes
• Proportional controls for drive and lift functions
• A pothole protection system
• An overload sensing system
• Lowering warning system
• Two person capacity, which reduces time spent erecting towers and moving between work points

 

Andy Connor, Speedy’s supply chain director, said: “I’m delighted to announce another landmark investment for Speedy. We continually strive to put the needs of customers first through our product improvement,
innovation, and investment programme. Skyjack manufactures outstanding electrical scissor lifts, which give users the optimum level of performance and safety. We’re confident that these units, which will be available at our centres across the UK, will meet the needs of those working in aerial lift professions.”

He added that, “Our level of investment into rental equipment this year is a clear indicator that we are determined to fill supply gaps in the market and provide a market leading service to our customers.”

 

Skyjack, which started to manufacture powered work platforms in 1986, is a world leader in aerial lift industry with more than 30 percent of global market share, reaching territories as far as North America, Asia and
Australia.

Charlie Patterson for Skyjack, said: “We’re delighted that Speedy Services has decided to invest in the SJIII 3219 and SJIII 3226 as it shows a high level of trust in our products. We’re confident that customers across the UK will be impressed with these units and the many benefi ts they bring to working comfortably at a height.”
