Versalift has won the HEA-HEMSA Product of the Year award for its Versalift Telescopic (VT) range of van-mounted platforms.
The Highway Electrical Association (HEA) represents more than 100 organisations within the highway electrical sector, whose contract services range from street lighting and traffic signals to highway communications.
The Award was received at the HEA Conference and Exhibition held recently at The Celtic Manor, Newport.
The HEA-HEMSA award for Product of the Year – Non-Luminaire, was given to
Versalift’s telescopic range of van-mounted aerial work platforms, which are used for
working safely at height.
The product was completely re-designed to improve performance and productivity and incorporates a profiled boom design that gives exceptional rigidity. The VT can be mounted on a range of vans, including Ford Transit, Iveco Daily and Mercedes Sprinter.
Already in use by highway electrical street lighting contractors, including members of
HEA-HEMSA, the VT provides access to street lights and poles generally requiring
heights of up to 13m for town centre and amenity lighting, and 13m to 17m for lights
along major roads and motorways.
The Versalift UK team collected the award and Andy Bray, General Manager-Director, said: “Versalift UK has had a lot to celebrate in 2019. We are celebrating 25 years of operation in the UK and Ireland, having sold and supported over 7,000 platforms. Street lighting is one of our core markets, so this award endorses the design and innovation expertise we have within the Versalift group as we continue to shape the future of vehicle-mounted platforms.”
