By Euan Youdale28 June 2022
The AFI group of companies has invested in telehandlers from Manitou as part of a larger planned investment in telehandlers for its new material lifting brand AFI Lifting.
As a rapidly expanding telehandler rental fleet offering nationwide coverage across the UK, AFI Lifting, utilises UK-based AFI-Uplift’s depot network and transport fleet. AFI’s telehandlers range from 5m to 20m lift heights with load capacities from 2.4 tonnes to 12 tonnes.
The new telehandler investment has been made to meet extra demand from customers wanting to hire telehandlers for industry sectors like construction, material handling, housing and building maintenance.
AFI customers can choose from a range of telehandler machines to deal with loading, unloading, moving site equipment or clearing sites, in a variety of applications such as industrial, building, agricultural and landscape works.
Graham Hawkins, managing director, Un-operated division, South said, “We are currently investing heavily in growing our telehandler rental fleet with leading manufacturers including Manitou. This order forms part of a bigger investment to increase our diverse telehandler fleet so we can offer customers a wide range of high-reaching versatile machines and a range of rotating handlers.
“We plan to add more machines to the fleet as part of the wider investment. Operating within AFI, we have access to a strong, experienced engineering and transport team, supported by trained technicians, trained engineers, a good customer base and our 24/7 support service.”
