UK Platforms are the HSS powered access specialists. Working
at height is one of the most closely regulated and dangerous
areas of construction, and UK Platforms has one of the largest
fleets of safe, fully serviced, and up to date lifts, booms, platforms
and masts in the UK.
For Martin Hannan, buyer at Ashford Cladding, UK Platforms are
simply an essential part of his business. He is completely reliant on
the range of equipment that UK Platforms supply – like many UK
industrial roofing and cladding sub-contractors, his company
holds little or no height access equipment itself.
“Their range of equipment is superb – up to 20 metres in height,
they can’t be beat. They’ve got everything.
“We have nine jobs on the go at the moment. From the biggest
job we’ve ever done, a Waste to Energy site in Hull, that needs the
biggest scissor lifters and booms that we’ve ever had to deal with,
to smaller but still considerable jobs in Birmingham, Wetherby,
“If we had to buy and service the access equipment for all of it
we’d have an inventory to rival UK Platforms themselves!’
When asked about the attitude and customer support he gets
from UK Platforms, Martin is a man of few, but telling words.
“Availability of equipment? Customer support? Value for money?
National network? All ten out of ten. Their speed of delivery is spot
on too, as is the relationship we have with our local UK Platform
reps and senior management.
“When we need powered access to work at height, whatever we
need and wherever it is, it’s there when we need it.
“And that’s all that I can ask for.”
