Leach Lewis the UK dealer for the Dingli range of access equipment expects to sell 200 of the Chinese manufactured machines to the UK market in the first year.
Following the official UK launch of the Dingli range of Access Platforms at the Vertikal Days exhibition at the end of June and the first order being placed at the show, James Darnley, Leach Lewis Industrial sales manager, told Access International that he was confident that once potential customers had a chance to evaluate the Dingli machines, they would be impressed.
Leach Lewis Industrial is holding a certain amount of stock of the Dingli machines, but said that delivery from China on machines not in stock should only be between four to six weeks.
Leach Lewis Industrial's first customer for the Dingli platforms is the newly established Safe Access Solutions Ltd, based in Wolverhampton. The company signed a multi machine order worth over £60000 which included Dingli JCPT0807DC 19ft electric scissor lifts, and Dingli JCPT1008HD 26ft hydraulic drive scissor lifts.
John Corrie SAS managing director said, "We have chosen to purchase from Leach Lewis Industrial due to the long standing relationship we've had with the team. There is a strong sense of trust and the personal touch they offer means we know we can just pick up the phone and rely on excellent aftersales service they provide."
"Our new Dingli machines will be going out on hire immediately, giving our customers the chance to use a machine we know has the same technology as the rest of the industry."
James Darnley, Leach Lewis Industrial UK Sales Manager said "The deal with SAS was a great opportunity to work with someone that the team at Leach Lewis have known for years, allowing them to setup in the UK as quickly as possible. We're confident that the combination of Leach Lewis Industrial and Dingli access platforms will give SAS a strong start into the UK access market."
Leach Lewis Industrial is the official distributor in the UK and Ireland for Dingli access platforms, and is offering a full range of electronic and hydraulic scissor lifts starting from 5m working height up to 14m working height, including push along and self propelled low level access machines.
