Kier’s construction hoists will be incorporated into GB Access, A-Plant’s specialist personnel and goods hoist hire and sale division. Third party customers hiring hoists from Kier will now be looked after by GB Access.
Kier corporate development director Claudio Veritiero said: “The new agreement builds on our existing framework with it now extended to cover telehandlers, lighting, generators, trackway, climate control equipment, hoists, specialist utilities equipment and powered access.”
A-Plant chief executive Sat Dhaiwal said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Kier Group, through the acquisition of their hoist business and by extending the long standing trading relationship we have enjoyed over many years. We look forward to playing a leading role in providing support to all Kier operating divisions as they deliver their strategic growth plans over the next five years.”
