At Central Platform Services Ltd we began to develop a reputation for our work on truck mounted platforms early in our inception and people began bringing their machines from far and wide. Despite being quite different from traditional MEWP type work, this offered the business an opportunity to “specialise” in something. Seeing the opportunity early, we expanded our business and staff to be able to conduct large truck work, but also retain our regular MEWP work as well. New premises were required, which saw us move to our purpose built facility in South Kirkby, which allows us to complete complex boom strips and major refurbishment work on the very largest trucks.
Soon after this our reward was to be approached by Bronto Skylift to become their UK service partner along with R.E Foster in the south of England. During this time we were chosen as the sole UK distributor of Bronto parts. The culmination of all this was the following announcement in late 2012:
Bronto Expands UK Service Network
November 6, 2012
Truck mounted lift manufacturer Bronto Skylift has expanded its UK service network with the appointment of Central Platform Services (CPS).
Located just South of Pontefract, West Yorkshire, CPS will provide services which range from routine servicing to complete overhauls and remounting.
Operating as Bronto’s service partner in the north of the UK, Thame based repair and service company RE Foster will cover the South.
Bronto said: “As the Bronto population in the UK has been growing in recent times it is important that we have the right infrastructure in place to attend to service issues in a professional manner. This requires a special set of skills that are often difficult to find.CPS has been over to the factory and attended service training schools and we are now very pleased to formally announce a partnership.”
Co-owner John Burton added: “At CPS we are constantly striving for good standard maintenance for hire companies and end user equipment.
With our new spray booth and overhead crane facilities we can now offer a complete service for all of our customers both large and small.”
Established in 2008 Central Platform Services has recently moved its premises to a larger site just south of Pontefract.
