New Manitou telehandlers for Morris Leslie

Manitou telehandler

Scottish plant hire firm places order for more than 140 MT telescopic handlers as part of business expansion  

MANITOU have secured a new order for 140 MT telehandlers from Perthshire-based Morris Leslie Plant Hire. The latest machines add to the 250 Manitou units that Morris Leslie have purchased in the past 12 months.

Johnathan Tapp, managing director of Manitou UK, said: ‘Manitou are delighted to be a key supplier of telehandlers to the Morris Leslie Group as they continually grow their business in a variety of hire industries. Manitou is the specialist in materials handling and our product range is designed to meet the needs of an evolving market.’

Customer feedback on the Manitou units already delivered to Morris Leslie has been very positive, particularly productivity and efficiency being key parts of the customer experience. Comfort, ease of use and performance are major benefits on offer from Manitou, and the excellent relationship they have established with Morris Leslie, has fostered a very flexible relationship which is replicated throughout the Manitou dealer network.

The new order comprises Manitou telehandlers (6-14m lift height) that provide load capacities from 2,500kg to 4,000kg, further enhancing the total handling solutions package on offer from Morris Leslie, as they deploy the latest Manitou machines across their nationwide depots to increase their customer base and provide added value to existing customers.

Graham Ogilvie, Morris Leslie’s group operations director, said, ‘Manitou are an important partner in our continued investment programme which will see £45million spent in 2015 to ensure we continue to have one of the, if not, the most modern plant hire fleets in the UK.’
