The company, which sold its powered access business to Tanfield Group last year and is now concentrating solely on the aluminium access market, also introduced its new general manager, John Nevin, who joined in November.

UpRight used the event to provide details of improvements to its manufacturing processes and to its products. It said it was capable of supplying products with a lead time of between four and six weeks, and that the facility could increase production capacity by 30% at short notice

Product wise, UpRight focused on the capability to paint its towers – a benefit in particular for rental companies – as well as new foldable toeboards, a stairway for its 400LF system, and new castors

Following Mr Nevin's appointment, Noel Corcoran retains overall leadership as regional chairman, while Brian Maddon is head of engineering and Arne DirckinckHolmfeld remains in charge of sales
