JMS added the first Almac tracked scissor lifts to its fleet five years as part of its programme in order to offer a more diverse rental fleet. Managing director Mark Jackson said: “We are pleased to be adding to the diversification of our fleet and have run Almac scissors for several years now with great success. We are especially excited to be adding the Jibbi 1250’s and 1670. They will give our customers increased versatility and flexibility on job sites. Their ability to work on rough terrain and slopes really do set them apart in the industry.”

Dan Robertson of UK based subsidiary Almac Atlantic added: “I am delighted that JMS has made the decision to increase their AlmaCrawler fleet. This is an exciting period for Almac Atlantic in the UK and working with a company such as JMS is a testament that increasing our investment in the UK was the right move. We have seen demand for our products increase in the past 12 months, gaining further momentum in the past six months.”
