Star Platforms, the Bedfordshire based powered access rental company, have opened their fifth depot in Thetford, located in the heart of East Anglia. Orders have been placed predominantly with Skyjack and Niftylift; with new equipment arriving on site throughout June.

Joint Managing Director, Richard Miller, commented: “We have a large demand from existing customers to supply equipment in the Anglia region and with no Access Alliance member covering the area, we were compromising the service we offer with no managed supply chain. We therefore took the decision to open this depot in Thetford which has excellent road links to all parts of Anglia including Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Essex and beyond.”

“We also had the opportunity to employ an excellent General Manager, Stephen Carman, who previously worked in senior positions for Hewden and Nationwide Platforms and brings with him over 20 years’ experience in the rental sector. Stephen is very well known to us and the Anglia region and will help drive this business forward ensuring our customers enjoy the excellent levels of service they have come to expect from Star Platforms.”

Stephen Carman, General Manager – Anglia, commented: “I worked with the senior management team of Star Platforms during my time with Nationwide Platforms and watched with interest as this quality business was being built. When Richard approached me about working with Star Platforms at the brand-new Thetford depot it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. We are now open for business and I look forward to supplying our customers with quality equipment and a first-rate service across the Anglian region.”
