UK sales company Workplatform has delivered its 10,000th Genie aerial lift earlier this month, a 19ft GS1932 E-Drive sold to Manton Forklifts, a new entrant to the powered access market.
Workplatform - established by Jonathan Hull 14 years ago - has sold Genie products for just 12 years. The relationship began in 2010 when the company was appointed as a Genie material lift and AWP push around dealer, becoming a full line distributor several years later.
Hull said: “I suppose it was always going to be highly likely that the 10,000th unit we purchased from Genie was going to be one of our volume products and along with SLA material lifts, the GS-1932 is one of our most popular models. We chose to partner with Genie because Genie as a brand, is recognised all over the world for having an extensive model range, excellent build quality, reliability, serviceability, ease of use and the lowest overall total cost of ownership. By concentrating our efforts with one brand, it means that the level of service and support we can give our customers is second to none.”
Speaking of his company’s relationship with Workplatform Ryan Izzard, of Manton Forklifts, said: “Our decision to purchase this particular Genie lift model was based on reputation, and recommendations from Workplatform. When Manton Forklifts decided to purchase an Access fleet, we decided to look around several manufacturers. For us, Genie stood out as a good option for our hire fleet, due to quality for price and aftersales support that comes with the products. Workplatform suggested the E-Drive models to us, and after taking into account that there is a smaller hydraulic system therefore reducing the risk of a hydraulic breakdown, it proved to be a better choice for our hire fleet.”
