AFI-Uplift moves into larger Wakefield depot.

UK powered access rental specialist AFI-Uplift has relocated its Wakefield depot to larger premises.

The new, purpose-built premises is twice the size of the company's previous depot, it has over 13000 sq ft of workshop space, and 16000 sq ft of office space, including two fully equipped training areas. Operating with 14 staff, the depot has a fleet of over 360 boom and scissor lifts.

AFI director Nick Higgins said, "Following the expansion of our rental fleet at Wakefield we outgrew our former premises. Our move to the new depot gives us the capacity to cater for both recent and future increases in customer demand. This kind of investment in the infrastructure of our business can only improve the level of service that we offer our customers.

"Wakefield has always been one of our high performing depots and, despite the challenging trading climate; there is no reason why that should not continue to be the case."

AFI also has depots in Birmingham, the East Midlands, Hull, Liverpool, London East, London South and London West, Manchester, Milton Keynes, the North East, Peterborough, Preston, Scotland, Southampton, South West and South Wales.
