Dubai airport invests in platforms from AL Laith
By Maria Hadlow04 February 2009
AL Laith Scaffolding LLC, Dubai, has recently supplied a large number of aerial work platforms to Dubai Airport including equipment from Niftylift and Oil & Steel.
Amongst the machines, were two Nifty HR15NE battery powered, 15 m, self propelled articulated machines; two Nifty HR10E 10m, battery powered, self propelled machines and an Eagle S 4230.
The Nifty machines were chosen because they have a compact size, good outreach and low gross weight.
Also chosen for its compact size to performance ratio was the Eagle S43230 from Oil & Steel. It has a maximum working height of 42 m and maximum outreach of 30 m; mounted on an Iveco Stralis 26 ton
Jim Craddock of Niftylift, said that since the machines have been operating in such a prominent and prestigious location, within the airport terminal, Niftylift has received an incredible increase in general enquiries for their full product range on a worldwide basis, with interested potential customers referring specifically to these machines. "Long may this trend continue, in this economic climate!" he said.
AL Laith is a dealer and rental company operating in the United Arab Emirates - its fleet has models from UpRight, Genie, Snorkel, Niftylift, Omme, Skyjack and Oil and Steel.
