JMS Access Takes Delivery of 1,000th Machine
Independent powered access rental company JMS Access has taken delivery of its 1,000th machine.
The company, a division of JMS Powered Access, reached its millennial milestone after receiving a Genie ZX-135/70 boom lift from Access Platform Sales Ltd (APS).
Mark Jackson, founder and director of JMS Powered Access, said: “We are extremely proud to have reached one thousand machines. We’re also pleased it was a boom from APS, as we have worked closely with them since our inception. APS has been with us every step of the way and has provided us with a first class service throughout.
“JMS continues to go from strength to strength and we will continue to expand our fleet to meet growing customer demand. We anticipate hitting 1,200 machines later this year.”
Founded in Harpenden in Hertfordshire in 2000, JMS Powered Access is one of the UK’s fastest-growing access rental companies. The company has grown into a national provider, with additional depots in Leeds and at Pinewood Studios. The Genie ZX-135/70 joins the company’s impressive fleet of big booms including more than 40 machines providing working heights of 80ft or more.
The Genie ZX-135/70 is a diesel articulating rough terrain boom, offering a maximum working height of 141ft (43.1.5m) and horizontal reach of almost 70ft (21.26m). The telescopic jib extends from 12 to 20ft (3.66m to 6.10 m) and provides a 110˚ vertical range of motion for precise positioning.
Jim Daintith, a director of IAPS Group, which owns APS, officially handed over the Genie ZX-135/70 to JMS Access. “We are delighted to have supplied JMS with its one thousandth machine,” said Jim. “JMS has achieved this milestone in an impressively short space of time and I believe that is because Mark and his team do business the right way.
“We look forward to supplying them with many more machines – at this rate we will be back soon with number two thousand.”
APS is one of just two approved Genie powered access dealers in the UK, supplying the comprehensive Genie range of self-propelled, push-around and towable aerial work platforms, as well as Genie material lifts.
As well as fast access to machines, customers purchasing Genie products from APS also benefit from unrivalled after-sales service from the other two divisions of its parent company, IAPS Group. IPS is Genie’s authorised UK parts distributor; and PSR is the Genie authorised service provider and operates 23 mobile service engineers covering the entire UK.
