UK based distributor of access equipment AJ Access Platforms has announced a deal to supply customised Holland Lifts to GE, after an 18 month approval process to become GE’s preferred supplier for Access Platforms.
The deal worth £2.2m is the biggest Holland Lift order that AJ Access Platforms has taken. The first order placed by GE was for HL330 E14 Electric Scissors, the biggest electric narrow scissor on the market. The Holland Lifts have been customised for GE, for use in the construction and maintenance of new Valve Halls on one of their worldwide electrical supply sites. AJ Access Platforms have worked very closely with the customer and Holland Lift to ensure that all details are covered on the build specification and training and service contracts are also included.
Vicki Allen, Southern Territory Sales Manager – AJ Access Platforms said:
“After 18 months of hard work and dedication we are pleased to announce the imminent shipment of the first of the HL330 E14 Holland Lifts which have been customised for GE. We have successfully passed a detailed on-boarding process with the help of our parent company and our quality awards, reinforcing our dedication to providing top level service to our customers. With the help of Holland Lifts Head of Engineering, we have managed to build in all the specific requirements for this highly unusual application, and we were pleased to witness the successful testing and certification of this customised model last month. We look forward to continuing our work with GE over the coming years to support them in offering the best quality machines for the construction and maintenance of their sites around the world.”
