Graham Construction purchased Generac V20 lighting towers from Sleator Plant

Northern Irish plant sales company, Sleator Plant, has bolstered its lighting tower portfolio with secured orders for the new V20 mobile light tower from Generac Tower Light.

Launched in February, the V20 tower light was designed to celebrate Generac Tower Light’s 20th anniversary in the industry, and this recent order also marks Sleator Plant’s 20 years in selling plant throughout Northern Ireland.

Sleator Plant is a progressive company with a diligent focus on delivering first rate sales and aftermarket service to the construction and hire sectors throughout Northern Ireland.

Owned by Ballyvesey Holdings, Sleator Plant is the principle distributor for Terex and Genie and has been looking to expand into lighting following requests from customers.

Jonathan Campbell, General Manager, Sleator Plant said: “We have a reputation for supplying top quality brands and following an initial enquiry from a customer, we researched the market to gauge whether there was appetite and demand for mobile lighting in Northern Ireland.

We found that many of our customers were looking to reinvest in their fleets with state of the art and efficient products. This demand coupled with new government initiatives to support infrastructure and construction projects, presented us with enough market intelligence and we felt it was an ideal time to invest and introduce new products, which would also complement our existing brand portfolio.

The V20 from Generac Tower Light blends sleek, contemporary Italian design with powerful performance, and robust structure.

During the product design and production process the Generac Tower Light team focused on creating and manufacturing a product with extremely low fuel consumption and low carbon emissions, improved visibility and access for service.

The gull-winged doors, not only give this lighting tower an iconic and exclusive look but are practical, to give compactness, allowing 14 machines to be transported to site, and provide complete 360 access to the engine for easy maintenance, whilst the back door provides access to the control panel.

The V20 is an ideal machine suited to infrastructure projects and urban construction as its one of the quietest lighting towers on the market, with just 58 db(A) at 7-metres noise level. The V20 can also offer more than 160 hours of operation by harnessing fuel efficiency from the Kubota engine and efficient LED lamp heads.

Brian Frizzell, Sales Representative at Sleator Plant continues: “After reviewing a number of companies and products on the market, we felt the V20 offered us a leading edge. It looks different; it’s highly powerful with strong and instant LED lamps, and efficient on fuel.”

Sleator Plant is based in Mallusk, just north of Belfast. It currently employs 13 people of which eight are in the aftermarket team focused on delivering first rate customer service, technical advice and maintenance.

Ensuring a strong and knowledgeable after-sales service is also one of the core objectives of Generac Tower Light. Through its OEM relationships, it is committed to developing a hands-on and efficient global service network via its local service centres which offer first rate and professional care to customers.

Jonathan Campbell continued: “Through our network and product sourcing, we want to offer our customers cost effective and contemporary products so they can have access to the latest kit, benefit from good return on investment and receive excellent aftercare from us. But we also look at how easy it is to maintain and upkeep the products for our service engineers who are measured on customer response times and first-time fix.

The V20 is competitively priced for such an advanced and quality focused mobile lighting tower but importantly it was the ethos and passion for immediate and responsive service which attracted us to work with Generac Tower Light.

The V20 lighting towers arrived at Sleator Plant in June and have been sold to Graham Construction.

David Gray, Area Sales Manager, Generac Mobile Products UK Ltd. said: “When we met with Sleator Plant we were impressed by the company’s energy to promote quality service and product design across its customer base. We are very much looking forward to growing our reputations to mutual benefit and are delighted to introduce the new V20 to their range.

The new V20 tower light is available now from Generac and is available for demo.
