Big Achievement Announcement ! Fortel owner, Sat Nijjer is proud to be a member of a HS2 alliance.
To support the HS2 project, an alliance of ten building machinery and manpower suppliers was formed.
A-Plant Crane Hire, Selwood Pumps, MGF Excavation Safety Solutions, Morson Group, VGC, and Citrus Training are also included.
The 10 companies together have an inventory of equipment worth £ 1.5bn across nearly 500 locations.
Dave Harris, commercial director at A-Plant, said: “Connect is a collaborative group of like-minded companies offering HS2 and its contractors a broad range of services and solutions. We have traditionally come together in different categories of plant equipment, labour, training and operated and non-operated plant technologies providing an integrated, flexible supply chain. “Mr Harris added:” The obstacles for HS2 are labour supply, labour skills, innovation in equipment and healthier, environmentally sound equipment requirements. The Connect alliance is confident that we will be able to tackle these challenges together, providing everything needed across plant and skilled people categories.
Tim Burnhope, Chief Innovation Officer of JCB, said HS2 was set to have a major impact on “how the industry works together and how construction equipment is made.“
Roger Garnham, major account manager for Flannery Plant, said: ” In its approach to a major infrastructure project, the Connect Alliance is changing the game – it is an opportunity for companies to collaborate and offer our services and skills as part of an HS2 package.”
