Access Platforms are what Planet Platforms are synonymous with as a leading manufacturer of access equipment.
WHY USE PLANET PLATFORMS?
Access Platforms come in many sizes and configurations, which are reflective of their intended use. This use has increased due to demand and a change to regulation governing how, where and when they should be deployed. Being at the forefront of the UK access equipment manufacturing sector, Planet Platforms has adapted and evolved in response to these changes and our innovative designs are testament to the long-term relationships with our customers. Aluminium has always been the preferred material to work with as its lightness and strength produce access platforms that are easy to move and built to last. With the advancements in technology, fibreglass gave users a new material option, suitable for use in unique environments, such as those in the offshore, petrochemical and electrical industries.
The evolution of our platforms is also attributed to a much simpler fact and that is the needs of our customers. The access equipment we manufacture has become more versatile and multifunctional; height adjustable platforms and the ability to link multiple units together are just a couple of examples of versatility and the scope of application. Whatever the problem, we can and always have delivered the solution.
Logistics, Distribution, and the Movement of Goods
Since the spring of 2020, we have substantially changed the way that we shop. The goods that we typically bought during a foray onto the high street were no longer within our reach, as all but the essential shops were closed. So instead, we headed online. This trend had already started but the pandemic amplified our need for some virtual retail therapy.
Logistics, distribution, and the movement of goods. With over three million people in Great Britain working on and around a vehicle as part of their regular job the need to ensure they do this safely is vitally important. Read more at https://bit.ly/3xdAr43
Working at height is the responsibility of multiple stakeholders within organisations. @planetplatforms found that the diversity within the decision-making unit is pivotal in ensuring that operations are run safely and securely every time. Read more at https://bit.ly/3sAzUb5
