Bursa-based Turkish rental company Fatih Vinç has ordered thirty-five powered access lifts from UK equipment manufacturer Snorkel through the Istanbul-based distributor of the brand, Uzman Lift.
The deal includes 21 electric scissor lifts, seven compact rough terrain scissor lifts, three electric boom lifts, two TM12 telescopic mast lifts, a T46JRT telescopic boom lift – with a working height of 16m – and a S3010P push around mini scissor lift.
Kenan Aydin, the MD of Fatih Vinç, began investing in the products in 2009, and today, the business is one of the leading AWP rental companies in Turkey, operating a fleet of more than 800 units.
Aydin noted: “Uzman Lift has worked hard over the past year to introduce Fatih Vinç to Snorkel products and win this order. We are very impressed with the product design and quality, and we are confident in their ability to support the products in our fleet.”
Mehmet Karakaya, GM at Uzman Lift, commented: “We are grateful to Fatih Vinç for placing their trust in Uzman Lift and the Snorkel brand with this order. The lifts will be a great addition to their fleet, and we look forward to supporting Fatih Vinç through technical training and after sales support to help maximise their return on investment.”
Since their appointment as an official Snorkel distributor, Uzman Lift have invested heavily in building up machine and spare parts stock, marketing the Snorkel brand, and developing their technical capabilities – by sending a team of technicians to the Snorkel UK facility for training.
Matthew Elvin, CEO at Snorkel, added: “I would like to thank Fatih Vinç for their investment in Snorkel lifts. I would also like to congratulate the Uzman Lift team, who I know have worked hard to win this order, and are building a solid foundation for success in the Turkish market.”
The majority of the lifts will be delivered immediately from Uzman Lift stock, with the remaining lifts shipping from the Snorkel manufacturing facility in the UK.
