Lifting the economic gloom. The economy is deeper in recession than previously thought, according to the latest official GDP figures. But Yorkshire based The Kimberly Group – one of the UK’s leading providers of booms and scissor lifts for hire - is offering a ray of light during a time of economic darkness.

With a multi-million pounds order for 69 new Genie booms, cover working heights from 14m (45ft) to a massive 43m (141ft), the new equipment will swell the size of the Kimberly Group’s fleet of powered access machines to over 2,500.

It represents the largest order for equipment ever made by the Kimberly Group. The machines cover jobs from construction sites to maintenance services – any role which requires people to safely work at height.

“This substantial investment in new equipment is based on a deep understanding of our market place.” says Ray, “This order is an integral part of our growth strategy”.

The new machines will be spread across the Kimberly Group’s network of depots; including Wigan, Durham, Pontefract, Stoke and Durham; to 1st Access Rentals based in Motherwell serving Scottish industry; and High Level Platforms based in Poole.
