BSS Industrial Pushes Ahead With Snorkel

Washington, Tyne & Wear, U.K. (14th March 2019) BSS Industrial, a division of Travis Perkins plc, and the UK’s market-leading distributor of pipeline and heating solutions, has recently taken delivery of a significant order of Snorkel S3010P push-around mini scissor lifts.

Delivering a working height of up to 5.0m, the Snorkel S3010P can lift up to 240kg, yet weighs just 370kg, making it easy to push around jobsites and carry in passenger elevators in multi-story buildings.

This investment in fifty units follows a series of successful trial orders, where the product was introduced to the branches.  Delivered by Snorkel UK, the lifts will be available for hire across the extensive BSS UK network.

Commenting on this investment, Leighton Davies, Hire Director in the Merchanting Division at Travis Perkins, said, “We have been delighted with the performance of the Snorkel S3010P. It provides an additional and useful source of hire revenue at branch level and the customer acceptance feedback has been excellent.

“We have been impressed with the build quality and performance of the units, together with the high service levels provided by the Snorkel UK team. It’s great when we can invest in British-made products.”

Andrew Fishburn, Managing Director at Snorkel UK, added, “We are thrilled that BSS Industrial selected Snorkel as a supplier of choice for this equipment, and that they are receiving great feedback from their branches and customers.  We look forward to working with them in future.”
