POP-UP Products Announces Agreement with Independent Parts & Services Ltd
Pop-Up Products Limited, a leading provider of quality access
products, has announced today a partnership agreement with
Independent Parts & Service (IPS) for IPS to provide after sales
services support and parts for its award winning Pop-Up Scissor
The agreement with IPS, Europe’s largest independent supplier of parts and service to the access industry, offers Pop-Up a partner that has sufficient scale and national reach to support the unprecedented demand for the product - which in the last 12 months alone has sold more than 1,600 Pop-Up Scissor lifts. IPS also brings the flexibility to cope with the expected future demand.
The agreement forms part of Pop-Up Products’ positive response to the Working at Height Regulations (2005), which was introduced to prevent deaths and injuries caused by falls at work. Under the agreement, IPS will become the preferred partner to Pop-Up Products for the servicing and parts supply for its products.
Paul Gallacher, Sales Director at Pop-Up Products comments: “We have seen a fantastic take-up of the product and are delighted to be working with IPS to help us deliver the on-going service and parts for our customers. As the most compact and easily transportable low-level scissor lift on the market we anticipate that the demand will continue and as such we needed to find a partner that can grow with us.”
The Pop-Up Scissor lift proves popular as it provides a ready-made solution for businesses seeking a low-cost, long term investment for complying with the new Working at Height regulations. Where the use of steps and extension ladders was the accepted practise for low level access work, Pop-Up provides a safer alternative.
The Pop-Up Scissor lift was designed with convenience, manoeuvrability and safety as its key features. The access solution recently won Hire Association Europe’s “Product of the Year 2006” and has already been adopted by a wide range of leading tool hire and powered access companies all of which have placed significant orders for the product.
Tony Jennings, Managing Director of IPS, said: “Our agreement to provide parts and service maintenance for customers of Pop-Up’s innovative product is a logical extension to our business. With a clear strategy to grow IPS through successful partnerships, this addition to our business offering remains true to our philosophy of ‘making it easy’ by providing users of access products with a single point of contact for all their servicing needs.”
