Genie, the leading manufacturer of powered access equipment, played host at the end of September, in Birmingham to both the Access Alliance and Access Link organisations. Both audiences were treated to an on-site display of Genie’s 60ft Hybrid Z60/37 and 33ft Z33/18 boom lifts, as well as a 26ft GS-2669RT scissor lift.
Departing Access Link chairman Keith John said: “The Access Alliance and Access Link make up over 25 percent of the market share in the UK with 15,000 machines between both organisations allowing them to compete nationally on all levels.”
Tony Crawford of Mr Plant Hire, one of the largest providers of powered access hire in the London area; and Access Alliance chairman added:
“The event was a big success. Both organisations get on very well and it was a great opportunity for members of both organisations to cement trading relationships and build new ones with previously unknown members. It gives great confidence in the market that three of our members announced new depots, GT Access in Bridge End, PG Platforms in Thetford and Extreme in Coventry.
I would like to congratulate Keith John of the Access Link for everything he has done to take the Link where it is today as he hands over the chairmanship to John Ball.”
Jacco De Kluijver of Genie said: “For Genie it was a great pleasure to host both organisations for their quarterly meetings. Both of them represent a significant part of the UK powered access market, and hosting an event like this gives us a great opportunity to learn what is happening in the market, and at the same time be able to celebrate Genie’s 50th anniversary. We would like to echo the congratulations addressed to Keith John for all the work he has done for the Access Link, and on the same note want to wish John Ball all the best in chairing the Access Link going forward.”
