New machines part of investment strategy that will see rental major further expand its electric product range
Regional equipment rental heavyweight Johnson Arabia has expanded its AWP fleet with 10 new JLG R1932 electric scissor lifts as part of an expansion of its access equipment business.
The crane and AWP equipment rental company, which has more than 22 years of experience in the Middle East, said this investment in the 10 brand-new JLG scissors is “just the start of an expansion which will see additional core and specialist products entering the Johnson Arabia rental fleet in response to demand from new and existing customers who are looking for the specialist work at height capabilities” offered by the rental company.
Johnson Arabia runs one of the largest and most comprehensive fleets in the region and said it is “further investing in its capability as an industry leading equipment supply company”. The R1932 is not a new model in the company’s fleet, and these new units have expanded “an already popular product line with additional capabilities and efficiencies designed to improve the experience of the end user”, said a statement from the company.
Joe Keely, executive manager of AWP, said: “This delivery is just part of an investment strategy which focusses on the growth of our existing business, while also expanding our electric product range. These machines have already been delivered to one of our existing customers and I’m sure will continue to be popular on the various projects we are supporting in the UAE and around the region.”
Martin Kirby, managing director, Johnson Arabia, said: “As a work-at-height equipment specialist, we are responding to the demand for our core AWP offering and these 10 JLG R1932 scissors are just one part of enabling the business to provide our clients with the class-leading service and support they have come to expect of Johnson Arabia.”
The JLG R1932 boast a maximum platform height of 5.79m and a maximum capacity of 229.27kg. A compact machine with a width of only 0.81m, it has a drive speed of 4.83kmh with the platform lowered. According to JLG, the electric drive model delivers up to double the battery life of a standard scissor lift.
