PRAMAC-GENERAC UK ANNOUNCES EXCITING PLANS FOR NEW CENTRAL LOCATION
Pramac-Generac UK will be opening and moving to a new location later this year as the company today announced exciting plans to move to a national hub and distribution centre.
The new premises will see the company relocate from its dual locations in Milton Keynes and Crewe to one central site at Tunstall Arrow business park, Stoke-on-Trent.
The new premises, located near JCT16 on the the M6, will enable Pramac-Generac UK to bring together its operations and further strengthen its aspirations for future expansion over the next ten years.
The opening of the new site in late 2018 will mark a key milestone in each of the company’s histories which merged together to form Pramac-Generac UK at the start of the year.
David Oates, Managing Director said: “We have undergone consistent growth in the UK and we feel this new site will elevate and strengthen our market leading product brands which remains a key focus and is critical to our UK strategy. Tunstall Arrow will provide a modern facility to invite our customers, partners and suppliers, as well as deliver state of the art training and aftermarket support to meet the needs of our expanding customer base in the UK and Ireland.”
Tunstall Arrow is a prime site which benefits from having excellent accessibility and roadside profile. The 21,000sq ft premises will include warehouse and secure yard storage facilities for Pramac-Generac UK, along with contemporary office space to support the company’s expanding service, parts, administration, sales and marketing teams.
David continued: “ We will be fully operational over the next few months and our focus will be on our customers to ensure they continue to receive quality service and product availability. We are very excited about the new location and there is no better way to kick start the new year than with a new building.”
The move will enable the business to scale-up and build on the firm foundations it has set over the last 20 years, serving several sectors including hire, rail, construction and infrastructure markets with power generation, materials handling, mobile lighting and dust suppression equipment.
Simon Peters, development director at Network Space, said: “We’ve had strong interest in Tunstall Arrow throughout the construction period and now that we’re due to complete phase one, we are delighted to have Pramac-Generac UK on board.”
Tunstall Arrow has been developed by Network Space who will also continue to own and manage the scheme moving forward. All units have been built by Caddick Construction to a high specification and come with self-contained yards as well as office space. Three out of the five units have already been leased prior to completion.
This season Generac Tower Light® expands its V20 Tower Light® range to incorporate three new compact and highly efficient mobile lighting towers to help the construction and rail sector make sustainable choices in onsite lighting.
These latest products have been developed as the company visions and brings to market an expansive range focused on technical innovation and greater connectivity between the product and the user, as well as ultra-efficient performance.
The V20’s proven success in global markets, with several thousand units sold across Central Europe and the UK, coupled with its compact size and modular design frame, made it the ideal standard for Generac Tower Light® to base the next generation range of LED lighting.
New products for the 2018 season include the all-new and intelligent iQ20 as well as the V20 Hyper and V20 Hybrid models.
The iQ20 will fulfil the needs of the lighting sector whilst delivering a cost-effective intelligent modelwith a telemetric system developed in conjunction with Trackunit®.
It is designed to do exactly what a mobile lighting tower should do but with Trackunit® provides complete fleet visibility and connectivity for users to evaluate performance, consumption and usage patterns.
It isequipped with an 8m hydraulic mast, low consumption single cylinder diesel engine and four high-efficiency 320W LED floodlights.
The brand new V20 Hyper, is equipped with unique Generac Omnia LED Technology® and is the first lighting tower of its kind to provide agile lighting options with up to three different types of lighting functionality on one machine.
V20 Hyper can deliver 180° front lighting for maximum light coverage with directional beam; 360° illumination for total light and guarantees the absence of shadows; as well as deliver a comprehensive anti-glare lighting system for use in urban environments and on track and road side.
The V20 Hybrid, which will be introduced to several customers in 2018, offers a next generation hybrid lighting tower, harnessing the power of Li-Ion storage batteries and a run time of up to 40 hours on the battery.
All new products feature the GTL01 digital controller, designed exclusively by Generac Mobile Products® for specific application on lighting towers, delivering greater control and ease of use.
The software on the GTL01 controller also enables ‘add-on’ applications making the models highly flexible to meet the needs of the operator, today and tomorrow.
Alessandro Rossi, Managing Director Generac Tower Light said: “Customers are much more aware and discerning as the need for new control and performance technologies such as Li-Ion batteries, hybrid power systems and LED lighting are largely being driven by advances in the building and home automation sectors, and alongside the automotive industries.
“Mobile lighting towers by their nature must be robust, dependable and easy to use. But we believe through technology, onsite operators can enjoy greater control, connectivity and smart use to improve the long-term versatility and lighting tower performance, whilst reducing OPEX costs for hirers and operators.”
The V20 range of lighting towers are available from Generac Tower Light® across the globe and will offer the construction and rail sector complete choice and the assurance of quality.
