In just its third year of trading, Star Platforms now has more than 1,000 access machines in its hire fleet.

The latest additions include two new models from Skyjack – the SJ4740 electric scissor lift and the SJ30 ARJE articulating boom lift – and the NiftyLift HR28 Hybrid boom lift.

Joint managing director Richard Miller said: “Skyjack and NiftyLift have received most of our capital expenditure for 2017. Not only do both companies offer a good commercial deal, but more importantly, they are very easy to do business with. Their products have received excellent user acceptance from our customers and they are the manufacturers of choice within our engineering department due to the ease in dealing with both companies’ after sales support teams.”

He added: “We anticipate 2017 being a very busy year and we need to ensure we have a modern fleet and the continued capacity to support our loyal customer base.”

Some of the 250 new products have already been delivered to Star Platforms with the remainder of the orders arriving between by August 2017.
