Warren Access grows with Snorkel Scissor Lifts

Washington, Tyne & Wear, UK (9th August 2018) Following their recent investment in new premises, Warren Access are continuing to grow, with the addition of seven Snorkel electric scissor lifts to their fleet.

Purchased from Linda Betts, Sales Director at Snorkel UK, Warren Access have recently taken delivery of three S3219E, two S4732E, and one each of S3226E and S4726E Snorkel electric slab scissor lifts, which have been immediately deployed in their rental fleet.

Celebrating 25 years in business this year, Warren Access was founded by Derek and Graeme Warren who opened their first branch in Newcastle in 1993. The business expanded with a second branch on the outskirts of Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire in 2012, and today is directed by Graeme Warren, Managing Director, Michelle Warren, Director, and Nikki Hill, Operations Manager.

To support their continued success, Warren Access have recently moved from their existing premises into larger premises in central Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, providing more space to accommodate their increasing fleet of truck and van mounted lifts, as well as a significant range of self-propelled access platforms. In addition to access platform rentals, Warren Access has become a leading provider of IPAF and Pasma training, with both branches listed as official training centres which are regularly fully booked. They are also a member of the Access Alliance, enabling them to provide nationwide coverage.

Warren Access have owned Snorkel electric slab scissor lifts previously, and were impressed by their reliability which led to this opportunity.

Graeme Warren, Managing Director said “We’ve had some Snorkel electric scissors from 2006 in our fleet which have performed really well for us. As we were looking to expand our current electric scissor lift fleet, the Snorkel range stood out to us. They are manufactured here in the UK, in fact, less than 20 miles from our Newcastle depot and have a lot of features built-in which deliver real benefits to us as the rental company, and also to the operator. Snorkel UK has delivered a great service and we look forward to building the relationship further with Linda and the team.”

Andrew Fishburn, Managing Director of Snorkel UK, said, “We thank Warren Access for this investment. As a family-owned rental company who started out close to our factory in the North East of England, we are especially pleased to supply these scissor lifts to Warren Access and look forward to seeing them out at work. I would also like to congratulate Graeme and team on their recent move to new premises and wish them continued success.”
