UK rental company GAP Hire Solutions has purchased up to 450 lighting towers from key supplier Generac (formerly Towerlight) in a deal worth over £3.1 million (€4.2 million).

The company said Generac would supply VB-9 lighting towers, fitted with AMOSS (Automatic Mast Operating Safety System) and light sensors, as well as the VT-Hybrid model.

GAP head of procurement Ken Stewart said, ‘We’re looking forward to offering our valued customers the VT-Hybrid model for the first time. We’ve conducted an extensive field evaluation programme with some of our national customers and the feedback on the performance of this lighting tower has been excellent.

“We recognise there are other products in the marketplace, however the support from Generac has always been excellent and that is why we keep choosing them. This year especially they have been exceptional and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them."

The company added that the deal would grow its fleet of lighting towers to over 1500, with deliveries of the equipment already underway in preparation for the forthcoming winter season to GAP’s 124-strong depot network across the UK.
