Lifting the economic gloom

With a multi-million pounds order for 69 new Genie booms, cover working heights from 14m (45ft) to a massive 43m (141ft), the new equipment will swell the size of the Kimberly Rentals Group Ltd fleet of powered access machines to over 2,500.
It represents the largest order for equipment ever made by the Kimberly Rentals Group Ltd. The machines cover jobs from construction sites to maintenance services – any role which requires people to safely work at height.

Company Chairman Ray Ledger says that while investing in millions of pounds worth of new machinery may seem bold during the recession, this is ‘absolutely not the case’.

“This substantial investment in new equipment is based on a deep understanding of our market place.” says Ray, “This order is an integral part of our growth strategy”.

The new machines will be spread across the Kimberly Rentals Group Ltd network of depots; including Wigan, Durham, Pontefract, Stoke and Durham; to 1st Access Rentals based in Motherwell serving Scottish industry; and High Level Platforms based in Poole.
