New Fleet of Manitou Telehandlers Raises the Game
Over the last quarter, CP Hire has invested in a fleet of additional compact and long-reach telehandlers. Demand for these flexible and productive machines continues to be extremely high.
The house building surge continues apace, buoyed by an increase in ‘housing starts’ in 2021 up 16% on the previous year (source. cpa). Furthermore, this is again expected to rise year-on-year in 2022 and 2023. Telehandlers have many uses but their primary benefit is in residential and industrial structure builds.
Some may have expected a softening in the housing market post-COVID and with recent political and economic events. However, the fact remains that this or any other government is still committed to 300,00 new homes per year and this remains in the Conservative manifesto.
Some 216,000 new homes were supplied in fiscal 2020/21
All genres of construction equipment are intrinsically linked to these initiatives, but maybe none more so than the telehandler. It’s ability to speedily reach and move supplies and building products on-site makes it an essential tool for any new development.
The CP Hire telehandler fleet comprises leading brand names like JCB, Merlo and Manitou. All are backed up with our comprehensive fleet service package that delivers industry-leading support.
