AMC Takes Delivery of Electric Fleet

National crane hire firm, AMC, has taken delivery of its all-new fleet of electric-operated mini cranes, representing a significant six-figure investment and a commitment by the company to be at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution.

AMC has welcomed six Maeda MC285CB-3 and five Hoeflon C6e fully battery-powered mini cranes at its two depots in Liverpool and London, demonstrating the very best technology in carbon-neutral lifting.

The new arrivals have helped AMC win a number of new contracts in 2021 worth approximately £20,000, including Moxy Southampton Hotel, Livingstone Academy Bournemouth and Borough Market, near London Bridge. This is in addition to working alongside material manufacturer MICAM at Heathrow Airport Terminal 2 to help replace the ‘Wall of Honour’ glass sculpture dedicated to those who helped build the terminal.

Mark Davenport, owner and managing director of AMC, commented: “Our mission is to continue innovating as a future-thinking company, so we can provide our customers with more choice, quality and reliability in bespoke lifting solutions. Our new electric cranes will help us achieve this tenfold and I am proud to see the company leading the competition in this arena. Electric cranes are the future of our industry – and AMC is right there at the front.

“What the company has achieved in the last 12 months is quite incredible when you consider the challenges we have all faced through the pandemic. We have been brave in our actions by investing in new equipment, creating jobs when other companies made cuts, and bringing our existing fleet bang up to date. Our confidence has paid off and we are now in a position to be excited about how the second half of 2021 progresses – especially now with the new electric fleet in place.

“With our electric cranes having an extensive battery life, our commitment to expanding the business while staying sustainable is one that we will continue to stay true to as we move forward.”
