United Kingdom access equipment hire company Facelift has opened a new branch in Ashford, Kent. The new Ashford branch is offering a full range of powered access equipment, including both self-drive and operated units up to 61 meters, along with machine servicing and inspection facilities.

The depot also has an indoor training facility in response to a growing demand for good quality health and safety training such as courses from the International Powered Access Federation.

“Our expertise and policy of continually re-investing and building the strength of our fleet means that we quickly become the go-to choice for contractors and businesses in the areas we operate in, and we’re looking forward to this quickly becoming the case in Kent,” said Gordon Leicester, managing director of Facelift.

“Nothing is more important than safety when working at height, and we’re one of the best in the business when it comes to delivering training,” said Eddie Reese, senior trainer. “The launch of the new center means that we can now offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for both training and hire here in Kent, and we’re sure this will prove very popular with local customers.”

Facelift, headquartered in Hickstead, Sussex, U.K., has 40 U.K. depots.
