Rivus Fleet Solutions has signed to a deal to offer SMR support for fleets running cherry-picker equipment from CPL (Cumberland Platforms Limited).
All 55 garages in Rivus’ UK-wide network will be equipped to provide in-life servicing, maintenance, repair and testing for any CPL product, enabling owners to use the Rivus network for both warranty and non-warranty work.
The firms said the partnership would deliver a convenient experience for both firms’ customers – many of which are shared.
Rivus’ garages will be supplied with CPL diagnostic and tooling equipment, together with having full access to supply chains for parts. In addition, Rivus technicians, said to be already experienced in working on such equipment, will now undertake training and testing to ensure customers receive CPL-standard levels of support.
The partnership also benefits from Rivus’ recent move to equip its garages for electric vehicles, enabling it to service the CPL’s growing range of fully electric platforms.
Simon Ungless, business development director at Rivus, said: “Businesses that run fleets not only want fast local access to facilities which support their base vehicles, but they also want the same standards for their ancillaries. Rivus is hugely experienced in supporting manufacturer warranties through multi-skilled technicians at every site – teams that also have vast experience in working with on-board equipment such as cherry-pickers. Through our national footprint, technical capability and capacity, we can provide users of CPL equipment with great service at locations which are convenient to them.”
