National construction equipment and services provider Speedy, has taken delivery of 380 new Dingli lifts after a £4.3m investment as part of a continuing strategy to replenish and expand its powered access fleet.

Speedy Powered Access has bought a significant quantity of zero-emission battery powered scissor lifts and mast lifts, with working heights ranging from 6.7m up to 15.7m.

Other machines recently delivered include the popular and robust 12m Rough Terrain 4×4 scissor lift. These units are fully compatible with low-emission hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), which Speedy uses to pre-fuel all powered access equipment as standard at no additional cost. HVO emits up to 90% less CO2e than standard red diesel.

The equipment is available from the firm’s 10 Powered Access Specialist Service Centres, located across the UK, including the business’ industry first low carbon Innovation Centre in Milton Keynes.

Speedy’s investment expands the range of Dingli machinery available to its customers, while also increasing access to sustainable solutions. It builds on the previous investment in April 2020, which added 130 Dingli scissor and mast boom lifts to the firm’s powered access fleet.

Andy Briggs, managing director at Speedy Powered Access said: “Contractors are increasingly choosing low carbon equipment that helps them to meet clients’ emissions targets. We’re making significant investments to replenish and expand our powered access fleet to boost availability of the sustainable assets they require UK wide.

“We’re already seeing strong demand for the new Dingli machines as we help contractors to work safely, sustainably and efficiently at height.”

Andy Northwood, general manager at Dingli said: “Our versatile range of machines helps contractors to carry out a variety of projects, from day-to-day maintenance to major construction projects. It’s a strong vote of confidence that Speedy has chosen to make its second major order with us in the space of a year, as it strives to provide the best assets to its UK wide base of customers. We’re pleased to be working with Speedy Powered Access and are committed to helping to provide more environmentally friendly solutions.”

Speedy Powered Access was formed in November 2020, following the merger of Speedy’s existing powered access businesses with three acquisitions – Prolift, Platform Sales & Hire and Lifterz. Since then, the division has invested upwards of £20m in powered access machinery, adding more than 700 units to its fleet, including models from Dingli, Skyjack, Genie and Niftylift.
