Rose Access adds more Teupens


Rose Access, an Aberdeen-based powered access equipment hirer, has added two Teupen Leo 18GT Spiderlift


machines from UK & Ireland distributor, Ranger Equipment. They join five existing Teupen units that the company already has in its fleet.


The compact 18GT has a maximum working height of 18m and includes self- levelling stabilisers and remote control drive. Rose Access was formed last April by MD Gary Rose (pictured, left, with the company’s Engineer, Stuart McKenzie), who has previously worked with HSS and Nationwide Access. Teupen machines will be promoted on Ranger Equipment’s stand at the Executive Hire Show next month.


Brisk business for TowerLight


TowerLight UK has supplied 20 units of its VT1 SuperLight lighting tower to Bristol-based Power Electrics, which hires equipment for outside events, highway maintenance and construction sites. This latest order brings its fleet to a total of more than 150 VT1s. The manufacturer, which will be exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show, has also received an order for more VT1s from Charles Wilson Engineers, which has 12 depots throughout the country.


The machine’s 9m vertical hydraulic mast features single lever operation, enabling one person to safely erect it in less than 30 seconds. It also incorporates a full bund for all fluids and has a noise level of 65dBA.


WHC wins safety award


Worcester-based WHC Hire Services has won an award for the work it has carried out in partnership with Severn Trent Water to combat the issue of workers’ exposure to HAV. The hirer won in the Safety category of the NJUG (National Joint Utilities Group) Awards 2010, which recognise high standards of street works achieved through the adoption of innovative practices. WHC has a dedicated HAV testing facility for regularly monitoring the condition of equipment, thus helping employers to ensure operator safety.


WHC is also planning to open a second branch, in Gloucestershire, in the spring, having recently bought a 14,000ft2


industrial unit close to junction 9 of


the M5 motorway. MD James Clutterbuck told EHN, “We have wanted to expand into this area for some time, but needed to ensure we found a facility with sufficient space and in the right location.” The company supplies a wide range of plant, tools and equipment to contractors, civil engineers, groundwork companies and builders throughout Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
