Finnish aerial lift manufacturer Dinolift has appointed its service partner Central Platform Services as distributor for the UK and delivered its first machine.
Dinolift and Central confirmed the service partnership at Vertikal Days with Central providing service, warranty and replacement parts for the full range of Dinolift Spider, trailer and self-propelled lift whether sold by either party.
Immediately following the announcement Nick Childs re-joined the company as sales director and it began looking for products to represent, with Dinolift at the top of the list. The company has now sold its first machine, an XTC220-II spider lift to Platforms Cymru, a tree & property maintenance contractor from West Wales. The customer had seen the machine at the Vertikal days and was quickly appreciated the quality of the machine.
Guto Tomos of Platforms Cymru said “I had my eye on a Dino spider for some time, but found it difficult to get to see one. The Vertikal show was a great opportunity to see the machine close-up and to be shown all of its features. The guys at CPS have made it so easy for me to get what I needed and the Euro exchange rate made the machine more affordable. My customers will now see the investment I have made in my business and I feel proud to finally own a Dino.”
Speaking of the progression to distributor Childs said: “It seemed like a natural progression for CPS during this growth cycle. We are well positioned to support product sales now having invested heavily in engineers, training and our repair facility. Keep an eye out for us getting involved with more new products in future.”
Central Platform’s director John Burton added: “Next year will see us begin to operate also in the South of England in order to better serve our growing national customer base and support our in-house brands of Bronto & Dinolift. We are well positioned now to do more direct sales on behalf of manufacturers of specialist access products, as we can offer a cradle to grave support service.”
