Environment Agency chooses A-Plant
By Euan Youdale06 June 2013
A-Plant has won a sole supply contract for non-operated and operated plant to the UK's Environment Agency.
The contract is for three years with an option to extend it up to a further year. It will see A-Plant providing a full range of equipment and services, covering excavators, pumps, telehandlers, rollers, accommodation and generators of various sizes.
The equipment will be required on short, medium and long term hire with some equipment needing to be available 24 hours a day.
Over the last 12 months A-Plant has invested heavily in new equipment including a recent UK£27 million order for 800 machines with JCB. According to the company, it was the first national rental firm in Europe to achieve dual certification to the ISO 14001:2004 standard and OHSAS 18001:2007 specification, and accreditation to the quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
Andrew Spencer, A-Plant’s strategic accounts director said, “Winning an account such as this wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the commitment our staff have demonstrated throughout the tender process.
"We will be working very closely with the Environment Agency to satisfy their operational and environmental requirements and targets. We are extremely proud to be working with an organisation of this scale and we look forward to helping the Environment Agency meet their future objectives.”
