MJ Hughes operations manager Liam Bennett said: “It was a pleasure to work with Mike and the team at GGR. It was a seamless process and great that they were able to deliver so quickly from stock. We have a high demand for electric equipment already, so to be able to provide a solution to our customers quickly was a huge bonus for us.”

GGR telehandler sales manager, Mike Walkely, added: “I am delighted to have been able to supply MJ Hughes with this innovative machine. In earlier talks, it became apparent that they were seeing an unprecedented demand for eco alternatives to traditional equipment. The zero-carbon emissions were a key factor here and when the demonstration took place, we were able to talk through the many benefits that this green machine has to offer.”

Founded as a structural steel company in 2002, MJ Hughes has added a range of telehandlers, access platforms and loader cranes to its fleet for rental. Based in Rotherham, the company also specialises in bridge, transport and rail work.
