Eagle Platforms Announce Biggest Order to Date


20 July 2015


Eagle Platforms

Eagle Platforms Ltd are delighted to announce our biggest order to date for brand new access platforms. In excess of £650,000 the deal agreed with Skyjack brings the very latest, state of the art cherry pickers, diesel, hybrid and electric scissor lifts, to our expanding hire fleet.

New additions will take the fleet holding to more than 150 units, with articulating and telescopic booms from 10M to 30M and scissor lifts up to 17M working heights.

Our manager Dan Stewart says “These are exciting times for us, as we grow to fast become one of the major independent providers of access in the Yorkshire and North Midlands areas. This coupled with a move into the crane and JLG tele handler hire markets means we offer a one stop shop for most clients.”

Senior Training Manager Don Horsley says “Our move to expand training services which now incorporate Tele Handler, as well as a full range of all IPAF training services is welcome and after 30 years in the access industry, my recent acceptance as a Senior IPAF Training Manager is a high point in my career. Our across the board training services continue to be offered at excellent competitive rates six days a week.”

Logistical and delivery support is also being expanded with additional transport and rapid service response on the road.

Jim Haigh MD says “ The re-establishment of our brand name has taken time, though we now have a fully developed, loyal client base who have no hesitation in returning time and again to experience the commitment Eagle Platforms Ltd provide in hire, service and customer satisfaction before, during and after supply. We do not always get things right, but we do pride ourselves on how we promptly deal with any issues that arise and this does seem to significantly separate us from the rest!”

Five years on, the Eagle name and reputation is second to none. Unlike most hire firms, we offer our services as standard 7 days a week.

To all existing customers thank you!
