Van mount manufacturer CPL is to deliver an initial order of 21 K38P van mounted platforms to Access Hire Nationwide (AHN) in the final quarter of 2020.

CPL is said to have worked closely with AHN to come up with a 13.8 metre design that meets customer requirements, by adapting CPL’s Renault Master K38P to include a new, shorter rear step, which not only offers a weight saving but allows for easier manoeuvrability.

The order is said to have further strengthened the existing relationship between the two countries, with additional orders already confirmed throughout 2021.

AHN has more than 125 4×4 CPL units with its fleet of more than 700 vehicles. 

CPL MD Paul Murphy said: “’We have always worked with AHN to ensure they have access equipment built to the safest and best quality possible with a short and on time delivery. 

“We have gained AHN as a van mount customer due to a number of factors, including type approval on the Renault Master, quality and honesty.’’

Stephen Moore, CEO of AHN’s parent company Kelling Group, said: “With the largest and most modern VMAP fleet in the UK, we will continue to invest to provide our customers with the best and most modern products, along with a dedicated 24/7/365 service offering. 

“Our relationship with CPL is longstanding, and the K38P will make a welcome, important, and growing addition to our VMAP fleet.”
