THE growth in demand for Trime’s X-ECO LED lighting towers from UK hire firms continues to expand unabated.
The latest firm to invest heavily in the Trime X-ECO LED is the rehire specialists, MHM Plant.
As MHM Plant disposes of it’s now out-of-date VT1 lighting sets, they have begun to replenish and upgrade their rehire fleet with the purchase of 500 X-ECO LED units direct from the Trime Group. Their aim is to have a 100% rehire fleet of Trime lighting towers by 2020.
MHM Plant operates a unique rehire service. This national rehire facility is only available to bone fide rental firms in the UK and Ireland. MHM Plant will not accept rental orders from end-users or any operators outside of the hire industry.
The X-ECO LED has a number of environmental qualities and safety aspects. The set is fitted with the AMOSS safety system, which automatically lowers the mast if the lighting set is moved whilst the mast is still erected. The complete unit features an external emergency stop button, a fully bunded fuel tank, four height adjustable stabilisers and site levels for guidance during deployment. The energy saving LED lamps will work for up to 2000 hours without replacement.
“We are delighted that MHM Plant has chosen our X-ECO LED units. This is a significant investment from MHM Plant and demonstrates their commitment in our products,’” commented Paul Hay, Trime UK managing director. “Apart from contributing to MHM’s hire revenues, the X-ECO LED will now be available to UK and Irish hire organisations that prefer to rehire rather than purchase outright. In addition, the environmental and cost saving attributes of the X-ECO LED will be passed directly onto their clients,” added Paul.
With green issues paramount in the hire markets, MHM Plant has made an additional investment in the new Trime X-SOLAR HYBRID and X-POLE lighting towers. The Trime X-SOLAR HYBRID has a light coverage of 2000 sq. m and emits zero noise and zero emissions. The X-POLE is a standalone solar powered light, which is very simple to use, with no separate battery pack required or complicated wiring or settings.
MHM Plant was incorporated in February 2010 and they currently operate from two locations. MHM West is located in South Wales and MHM North in Coatbridge, Scotland. A London depot, MHM South, is currently under development.
The Trime Group has over 50 years of experience in the development and marketing of environmentally sustainable lighting sets for the event, construction and rental markets. Trime UK is headquartered in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire; their manufacturing plant is based near Milan, Italy.
