Happy New Year

We're back after our Christmas break and here to help you work at height safely.

Here’s hoping that 2021 is better than 2020. It’s nice to be able to say goodbye and leave it behind, isn’t it?

If you need any help with anything, our phones are open as usual and our hire fleet is ready for you. You can find the dates of all our upcoming IPAF and PASMA courses here too. Courses are running throughout January as normal.

A look back at 2020

2020 had its challenges that’s for sure. We, like every business, had to adapt and find new ways of working that allowed us to keep hiring out our platforms and running our IPAF and PASMA training programs without sacrificing the safety of our staff, clients and customers. It was tough and a huge learning curve: we made changes to our procedures, introduced social distancing measures throughout both depots and increased our cleaning regimes. We also now have sanitising stations and QR codes for track and trace in both depots.

It was definitely not what we planned, but we are so pleased with our progress. Our fleets expanded with new Versalift van mounted platforms, Niftylift HR12s and Haulotte Star 10s. And we welcomed Lisa Runkee and Paul Marshall to the team.

IPAF and PASMA e-Learning took off and is providing our candidates with the opportunity to complete theory sessions online from the comfort of their own home. We couldn’t have done it on our own though, we have had the help of some wonderful local businesses and contractors, and we are extremely grateful to them all. It’s certainly been inspiring watching how the industry and local communities have come together to support each other, hasn’t it?

What’s in store for us in 2021?

While 2021 is looking to be another tough year, we have a lot to look forward to with some very exciting developments in the pipeline, including a brand new website! Keep an eye on our website and social media to see what we get up to this year!
