Dorothy Mort R.I.P
We have received the sad news that Dorothy Mort, a pioneer of the UK powered access industry, has died following a battle with cancer. She is survived by David, her husband of 62 years and business partner.
David and Dorothy Mort were a truly entrepreneurial couple having founded and owned Port Talbot Plant (PTP) at a time when self-propelled booms were just coming on the scene. They were at the very forefront of the modern access rental business.
We will draft a more detailed report and tribute as soon as we have gathered a little more information. As can be imagined this is a difficult time for the family, which includes son Tony, an access industry veteran in his own right. In the meantime our thoughts are with them.
We understand that there will be a private family service followed by a celebration of her life at a later date.
