Doosan Compressor

A-Plant, the leading plant, tools and equipment hire company, has placed a major order worth well over £3 million for new portable compressors from Doosan Portable Power. The announcement comes just days after the company secured a 1,000+ machine order with JCB.

The latest new A-Plant order comprises over 300 Doosan machines, including 7/20, 7/26E, 7/41, 7/72, 7/125-10/110 and 7/170 models. This is the first order in the UK for the innovative new 7/125-10/110 ‘Dual Mode’ portable compressor.

The new Doosan compressors have been delivered to A-Plant Service Centres throughout the UK and form part of one of the largest and most diverse ranges of hire equipment available today, meeting virtually every rental need from telehandlers and power tools to accommodation units and generators. The Doosan compressors join new Bobcat and Montabert products from Doosan Construction Equipment that also form part of the latest A-Plant fleet investment.

A-Plant prides itself on having the most robust and intrinsically developed quality and safety management system in the industry. As the first national rental company in Europe to achieve complete certification to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards, A-Plant can ensure customers have complete confidence, backed by an ongoing commitment to improving quality and health and safety.

Andrew Winlow, Director of Purchasing & Fleet Management from A-Plant, said: “The Doosan range of portable compressors is acknowledged as the market leader worldwide and we are pleased to offer our rental customers these best-in-class products. We also chose Doosan because of the outstanding local aftermarket support the company provides for the portable power range throughout the UK.”

Steve Hallam, UK Sales Manager for Doosan Portable Power, said: “We are delighted with this very important order from A-Plant which is a great testament to the high performance and durability that the Doosan range of portable power products offers for applications in plant and tool rental, construction and utilities. This is complemented by our customer centric approach, offering unmatched experience and expertise to provide an added value service to the customer.”
