Snorkel announces new partnership with Leach Lewis Plant

30 November 2010

Snorkel, a manufacturer of aerial lifts, has partnered with Leach Lewis Plant, an independent construction equipment distributor in the UK, to provide and finance Snorkel products to local rental companies.

The new partnership will trade under the Snorkel UK banner and will deliver Snorkel products ex stock or with short delivery times with a wide range of finance offerings, including hire purchase, finance lease, lease purchase and re-rent options. The partnership follows Snorkel's appointment of Mark Yarnold in early 2010. Yarnold will work with Leach Lewis' industrial division to enhance the regional rental businesses. Yarnold added that there are signs that UK demand for aerial lifts could return in early 2011. Working with Leach Lewis, the company can offer hire companies the flexibility to react fast, as that upturn occurs. Peter Whittall, managing director of Leach Lewis, was reported stating that, by combining the significant resources, UK hire companies can benefit from quick deliveries, a wide range of powered access equipment and some unique financing opportunities.
