AFI Supplies

Boom Lifts

At Liverpool

Exhibition Centre

AFI quickly stepped up to the mark to supply boom

lifts to steel erectors,Wisconco, after the contractors

had received a poor service from another hire


Wisconco was erecting the steelwork for a

new £50m exhibition centre being built in Liv-

erpool when it turned to AFI for help.

Wisconco Director Jody Wisniewki said:

“I contacted AFI because I was not getting

a good service from my existing powered

access hirer. AFI responded quickly to get

me what I needed.

“I was looking for machines that were

competitively priced, delivered on time, in

good condition and fit for purpose. That is

what AFI delivered and I was very happy

with the service.”

Wisconco hired four JLG 800AJ articulat-

ing booms, fitted with the SkyGuard second-

ary guarding system. The boom lifts have a

working height of 26.38 m and a horizontal

outreach of 15.74 m, giving Wisconco the

range of movement, reach and versatility re-

quired to enable its operatives to erect the steel-

work safely and efficiently.

The new development, called Exhibition Centre

Liverpool, will be connected to the Liverpool Arena

and Convention Centre and will more than double

the exhibition space available.
