UPA General Manager Jason O'Brien said: "We have a long-standing relationship with APS. Having purchased numerous vehicles from the company previously, we're confident they can meet our high-quality standards and their service is always good.

"From a rental point of view, LGMG scissor lifts are very robust, the build quality, including paint finish, is excellent and they've been very reliable. Also, they are very competitive in terms of capital expenditure."

While Mike Weatherill, APS sales manager in North West England added: "It's great to have such good feedback from Jason and his team at UPA, both in terms of our ability to deliver quickly and the LGMG product.

"We believe LGMG scissor lifts represent the ideal option. They provide clients with a high quality, reliable access platform, with smart innovations to make working at height easier and safer, with simple operating systems that end-user clients really like."
