French sales and rental company Acces Industrie is adding 327 Snorkel aerial work platforms to its rental fleet.
The new orders comprise 245 slab electric self-propelled scissor lifts - including 15ft S3215E, 19ft S3219E, 26ft S3226E and 32ft S4732E models - 70 Snorkel 10ft S3010P push around scissor lifts, and 12 38ft A38E electric articulated boom lifts.
The majority of the lifts, built at manufacturers’ plant in the UK, have been painted in Acces Industrie’s blue livery with a tough dual coat powder coat paint. They will be delivered to the company’s 37 branches through France.
Acces chief executive Pascal Meynard said: “Despite the challenges of 2020, Acces Industrie remains committed to our long term growth plan. This latest investment in Snorkel lifts helps us to expand our access equipment fleet to meet the needs of our growing branch network and customer base. We chose Snorkel as we trust the build quality and know that the products can withstand the demands of the rental industry, while featuring a robust custom paint finish that looks good in our fleet for many years.”
Based in Tonneins, France, Acces Industrie operates a rental fleet of 8,600 aerial work platforms, telehandlers, and industrial fork trucks. It was appointed as the Snorkel dealer for France in 2016 and has since opened a sales division.
