Last month, Stanley returned with anticipation to the Executive Hire Show 2022 held at the Coventry Building Society Arena, to come face to face with the UK’s leading hire businesses.
The trade-only event is open to hire executives throughout the UK and Ireland, yet it has also attracted hire industry visitors from Europe and beyond. The annual show took place over two days on 9 & 10 February, with the aim of bringing together tool, equipment and plant hirers and the suppliers of the industry.
The Stanley team not only had a busy few days meeting with national hire companies but had the opportunity to showcase our range of Sprinter electric powered stair climbers on our stand out in the Atrium.
What manual handling equipment did Stanley showcase at the hire show?
Stanley is at the forefront of developing manual handling solutions that can safely and efficiently move loads up and down the stairs.
Our Sprinter range of powered stair climbers can transport various weight capacities ranging from 85kg, up to an impressive 450kg.
Having over 70 years of experience in the material handling industry, Stanley is well placed to provide solutions that allow both businesses and end users to complete their jobs safely and efficiently.
A powered stair climber is a battery powered stair climbing sack truck that enables a single operator to safely carry heavy loads up and down the stairs. In turn, productivity improves and the risk of a manual handling injury is reduced.
Factors such as tighter H&S regulations, worker shortages and even home improvements over lockdown have contributed to a rise in powered stair climber use. This has also led to a growth in the demand for long and short term hire of such equipment.
At the Executive Hire Show
The relaxing of Covid restrictions encouraged attendance from large national hire companies as well as small independent hire firms, both of which were present on our stand.
Throughout the two day show, our team regularly demonstrated how a Sprinter powered stair climber can readily carry materials up and down a flight of stairs.
Chris Walshe, Sales & Operations Director, Stanley commented:
“ It was fantastic to be back out on the road and meet with customers from the dynamic hire industry. We had some good quality conversations at the event and I’m enthused by the response to our Sprinter range.”
Put simply, when a customer is required to move something heavy on the stairs – Stanley has the solution to do it safely.
With multiple applications and accessories, a Sprinter stair climber is customisable to many businesses and uses. Plus, a powered stair climber has been proven to provide a hire company with a return on investment in as little as five weeks. Making the machines a compelling proposition to the industry.
