Over the last 12 months, Sutton-based rental specialist added 100 JCB electric scissor lifts to its fleet, alongside 26-metre 555-260R rotating telehandlers and a series of JCB Loadall telehandlers – all supplied by dealer Greenshields JCB.

The access order includes S1930E, S2632E and S3246E scissors spanning 19ft – 32ft. They have joined 80 existing JCB scissor lifts in the fleet. 

Advanced Access Platforms Director, John Corcoran said, “As a company we have always looked to invest in British manufacturers and JCB is a renowned British firm with a reputation for quality.

“They are ideal for our existing customer base which spans the commercial, industrial and media sectors and our customers can expect the performance and reliability that JCB brings. They align fully with our Advanced Eco promise of supplying electric and hybrid machines as standard wherever possible.

Corcoran added that the company is receiving repeat business for its telescopic handlers, initially purchased specifically for clients in the TV and film industries, from industrial customers who are now requesting these products.

“The new machines are proving excellent additions to fleet and with our trusted dealer, Greenshields JCB, we have a reliable, fast and friendly team to back up the products with excellent service.”
