UK-based Star Platforms has expanded its fleet with more than 220 aerial platforms from across Skyjack’s range.

With the recent purchase, which includes vertical mast lifts, DC electric scissors, rough terrain scissors and articulating booms, the company now has a fleet of about 700 aerial work platforms, of which around 75% are Skyjack machines. All the boom lifts ordered are fitted with secondary guarding as standard.

“We are a growing company and opened two new depots last year, for which we require more stock,” said Richard Miller, joint managing director, at Star Platforms. “Skyjack as a company is very easy to do business with, often a phone call can arrange a quick delivery of product to satisfy a customer’s needs.”

Established in 2014, Luton-based Star Platforms, mainly supplies aerial work platforms and ancillary machinery to developers and independent contractors in the construction and service industries. In 2015, the company opened two new depots in Kent and Midlands.
