Mobile Platform Hire UK, a new UK truck mounted platform rental company, has opened and is now fully operational.
The new company, established by managing director Adam Tucker, is based in St Albans and has a fleet of five machines with working heights from 20 to 46 metres, all rented out with experienced operators.
Mobile Platform Hire UK currently has a fleet of five machines with working heights from 20 to 46 metres.
Tucker, 30 and an ex-member of the British Army, started the company last year after several years working in the access industry, as an operator, hire desk clerk and salesman/manager of southern operations with Wilson Access, part of the AFI group.
He is already looking for larger premises in Milton Keynes, in the heart of an area where Tucker sees most potential for the business.
“This industry has enormous room for growth particularly in and around the fastest growing city in the UK,” he said.
The company’s latest purchase is a 46 metre Bronto XDT which offers up to 24.5 metres of outreach and 600kg platform capacity. Other machines include a 20 metre Palfinger, a 22 metre Ascendant and 30 metre and 34 metre Bronto Skylifts.
