Our combined fleet will not be far off 600 units by the time all the orders are delivered."

Located on the Haydock Industrial Estate the new premises comprises offices workshops, an IPAF training area and yard space. Lifterz's North West operation will be headed by regional operations director, Lee Jolley.

Mr Jolley has had regional and national roles with Speedy Hire and prior to that held a key role with Blackpool based Smiths Equipment Group where he helped develop its access division.
