Powering into the future
By Maria Hadlow01 May 2008
The Power Tower sigma boom lift was developed
by Leicestershire-based CTE UK in cooperation with
the access rental specialist Lavenden Group and
launched at the beginning of last year.
Brian King of CTE UK says that the machine is
designed for low level access, "It puts you on the
fi rst rung of the powered access ladder and offers
much more rigidity than you would expect from most push arounds."
The special relationship with Lavenden has, until now, precluded the Power Tower from being sold to
other rental companies - by the end of April this year Lavenden companies will have some 300 machines
in their fl eets - but CTE UK has just started to sell to other rental companies.
When AI saw CTE UK at the UK Executive Hire Show at the beginning of February, plans for the future of
the Power Tower were well underway. The Power Tower website (www.powertowers.co.uk) had just gone
live and CTE UK was in talks with potential partners to sell the machine in Europe and the US.
