Leading national plant and vehicle hire provider, GPT, continues to express optimism in the recovering Irish economy. This optimism is backed by continuous investment in new, premium quality equipment. Two thousand nineteen has already seen the purchase of over 200 items of plant and equipment, this following on from a similar investment in 2018. This substantial investment has included many Genie®products – in both boom lifts and scissors lifts. Recent deliveries included Genie Xtra Capacity™ (XC™) SX™-125 XC, S®-85 XC and S-65 XC models, as well as Genie articulated Z®-62/40 and Z-80/60 units.
“We are extremely pleased to be one of the first companies to introduce these new Genie XC boom lifts to customers in Ireland,” stated GPT Operations Director Enda Eiffe. “Their arrival over recent weeks is another example of the significant investment GPT is making that adds value to our broadening aerial offering. With these new machines, customers now have the choice of the optimum mix of standard and dual capacity Genie XC models with increased lift capabilities to support new application opportunities and new working trends adapted to rising demand in a positive local market context.”
He continues: “With their heavier lift capacity and excellent below-grade reach that further expands their field of application,we are expecting our new Genie XC models to be a popular choice among customers for civil engineering, steel fixing and facilities maintenance applications.
By increasing productivity, they will find that they can do more using a single machine, which in turn helps to reduce labour costs. We are confident that these new units will rapidly become a must-have that will generate the high rates of utilization that we expect from any rental equipment to support our business.”
Mr. Eiffe concludes: “GPT sees this level of investment continuing over the coming years as customers continue to respond positively to the premium quality products being offered by our company coupled with our excellent customer service.”
