A-Plant wins two Environment Agency agreements
By Murray Pollok05 June 2009
A-Plant is one of the three suppliers on the rental framework but will be the single supplier for the management and maintenance of the Agency's entire fleet of powered hand tools and powered work equipment.
Erik Broderstad, key accounts sales director at A-Plant, said: "The new contracts with the Environment Agency are high-status appointments, which will utilise our wide range of expertise in the tool and plant hire market in the UK.
"Under the new maintenance and servicing framework, we have sole responsibility for assessing and advising on the inventories of equipment held at over 160 locations in the eight regions of the Environment Agency around the country."
A-Plant is carrying out three pilot projects in the Thames West, North West North and Midlands East areas, and will examine every piece of equipment and submit a report to the Environment Agency on the inventory held at each location in these areas. This process will then be rolled out to all eight regions to produce a national report for the Environment Agency.
The Environment Agency is a public body responsible to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the National Assembly for Wales. Its main aims are to protect and improve the environment and promote sustainable development.
