A-Plant grows with Trackunit
By Euan Youdale22 August 2018
A-Plant has made further investments in its powered access fleet with the introduction of Trackunit Access Control for its entire powered access fleet.
The UK rental company has invested over £40m in new equipment, and since its acquisition of Plantfinder UK, last year, its access fleet has increased to more than 4,500 units.
Ian Jordan, managing director of general equipment at A-Plant, said, “Our access fleet now has an average age of under four years, we have 38 service centres across the country and our latest products are even safer, more productive, greener and more sustainable.
“Plus, Winning ‘IPAF Training Centre of the Year’ at the International Awards for Powered Access last year has also provided a boost and helped to showcase the importance we place on safety.”
Continuing the company’s on-going commitment to innovation, A-Plant Powered Access recently announced that it is developing Trackunit Access Control for its entire powered access fleet.
Designed to reduce costs, drive efficiency and improve safety across multiple sites, the new fleet management system will ensure only authorised personnel with the right training and access codes can operate equipment.
Trackunit will also feature an alarms module to alert site managers should equipment be moved without permission and it will also allow them to activate and deactivate equipment remotely, at any time, via a secure online system.
Jordan explained, “Safety is paramount when working at height so it is fantastic that we will soon be able to offer a system that prevents unauthorised equipment usage.
“As well as improving safety on site, the new system will also ensure site equipment is in good working order and being used efficiently.
“Plus, the scheduling and downloading of intelligent reports will simplify day-to-day work flows and activity levels, helping to save money and make the most out of man-hours.“
A-Plant said it will continue to invest in its powered access fleet throughout 2018.
