The new enlarged business will now operate solely under the Nationwide Platforms brand from November 2019.
The larger combined business will provide customers with a broader choice of equipment with a fleet of 15,500 units, offering improved availability and a greater, more responsive local service.
Now with 38 depots spanning the UK, these smaller catchment areas will see Nationwide Platforms realise environmental benefits from shorter delivery journeys, which greatly support their CSR ambitions for 2020 and beyond.
Ensuring the reliability of the Nationwide Platforms fleet, the engineering department has been boosted to 356 engineers across the UK, delivering highly maintained machines to industry leading standards.
“I am delighted to welcome UK Platforms skilled and experienced employees into Nationwide Platforms”, said Colin Hotchkiss, Managing Director of Nationwide Platforms.
‘‘The combination of these two great companies’ capabilities now working as one enables us to offer market leading working at height solutions from the smallest local SME to the largest national customer.”
