Warren Access has bought a fleet of JCB Access electric scissor lifts, heralding the start of a long-term partnership between the two family-run businesses.

Supplied by dealer Scot JCB, the Newcastle-upon-Tyne-based access equipment hirer has purchased S1930E and S2632E ad models with working heights of 5.8 m and 8.1m, respectively. The new scissor lifts have become the first JCB Access products in the North East of England and are proving extremely popular.

One of the new S1930E models has already been placed on a contract at Sage Gateshead, the live music venue on the banks of the River Tyne. The scissor lift will be used for the intricate task of replacing light bulbs both internally and externally at the landmark.

Warren Access director Graeme Warren says: "The iconic Sage Gateshead building has over 4,000 lights and its unique design means reaching them all is a challenge. The self-propelled nature of the new JCB scissor lift, its ability to travel while elevated and the fact it can fit inside the building's elevators - make it perfect for this complex role where it has replaced a static lift.

"After a thorough market evaluation, we chose the JCB Access scissor lifts as the strength of the JCB brand provides familiarity and reassurance to the UK hire sector. Our customers love the features and have total confidence in the quality that comes with JCB equipment. For us, it was the extensive parts availability and after-sales service from Scot JCB that helped to clinch the deal. Other manufacturers can't offer that level of UK-based back-up, parts or expertise.

"Traditionally, we have specialised in light truck- and van-mounted platforms, but we have now introduced a small but growing fleet of self-propelled machines. By choosing JCB for these initial four machines, not only do we generate excitement in the market, but we also maintain our reputation for supplying the best quality kit at competitive prices."

Warren Access was founded by Derek Warren in 1993, and boasts over 50 years of access industry experience within the company. Now run by son Graeme and his wife, Michelle, the hirer offers a wide range of access equipment including: van-mounted platforms, truck-mounted platforms, scissor lifts, self-propelled booms and tracked access platforms.
