Following the acquisition of UK Platforms in January 2019, Nationwide Platforms are pleased to announce that the integration of these two brands will complete with the new enlarged business operating solely under the Nationwide Platforms brand from November 2019.
Over the last few months, integration work has been underway with the aim of bringing together these two great trading brands to create a strong, healthy and robust business platform with Health, Safety and Customer Service at its core.
The larger combined business will provide customers with a broader choice of equipment with a fleet of 15,500 units, offering improved availability and a greater, more responsive local service. Now with 38 depots spanning the UK, these smaller catchment areas will see Nationwide Platforms realise environmental benefits from shorter delivery journeys, which greatly support their CSR ambitions for 2020 and beyond.
Ensuring the reliability of the Nationwide Platforms fleet, the engineering department has been boosted to 356 engineers across the UK, delivering highly maintained machines to industry leading standards.
“I am delighted to welcome UK Platforms skilled and experienced employees into Nationwide Platforms”, said Colin Hotchkiss, Managing Director of Nationwide Platforms. ‘‘The combination of these two great companies’ capabilities now working as one enables us to offer market leading working at height solutions from the smallest local SME to the largest national customer.”
All former UK Platform staff have been integrated into the Nationwide Platforms family with new comparable roles and are ready to serve new and existing customers through the UK’s market leading powered access solutions provider.
