IAPS marks aquisitions and anniversary in May
By Euan Youdale16 April 2014
The IAPS group will mark its first year at Vertikal Days and present its recently acquired Outriggerpads brand along with its Isoli and Hinowa distribution deals.
The group officially launched at Vertikal Days 2013, following the merger of aftermarket specialist IPS and powered access distributor APS. The enlarged company now has three divisions.
Outriggerpads supplies load spreader plates for mobile cranes and access platform stabilisers. This includes recent innovations such as its Hi Viz range, which alert pedestrians passing close to powered access equipment to the potential trip hazard of spreader plates.
Additionally, its Independent Parts Specialists (IPS) division will be showcasing its replacement parts offering as official parts distributor for a range of manufacturers.
Meanwhile, the Access Platform Sales (APS) division will be on show. It is the authorised UK distributor for Genie, Hinowa, Ommelift, Niftylift, Youngman BoSS, Wienold Lifte material lifts and more recently Isoli, the Italian truck mounted manufacturer. This is the first year that APS has attended Vertikal Days as the Isoli distributor and will display an Isoli articulated boom mounted on a Nissan Cabstar chassis.
APS acquired the assets of Hinowa UK last year, although the manufacturer will have a separate APS-organised stand at Vertikal Days and display the 20 m working height Hinowa Lightlift 20.10 Performance IIIS and the 14.70 and 17.75, which provide maximum working heights of 14 m and 17 m, respectively.
Vertikal Days takes place at Haydock Park racecourse, Merseyside, UK, 14 – 15 May. Visit IAPS Group on stand 126 and Hinowa on stand 131.
