Posted May 28, 2015

Lighting the Way at the European Rental Awards

Leading site power equipment innovator, manufacturer and supplier Morris Site Machinery will be heading to Rome in Italy for the European Rental Awards on Wednesday 3rd June 2015, where they have been shortlisted for the ‘Most Sustainable Rental Product of the Year’ award.

Designed, built and developed in Great Britain by the team at Morris Site Machinery the SMC Solar-2, Britain’s first solar light tower, is a sustainability success story, heralding a new dawn in temporary site lighting. The tower is solar and battery operated and has no engine which means it provides 100% fuel saving, emits zero CO2 and zero noise and requires minimal service. Its high quality LED lamps offer 50,000 hours of life. The machine itself has a ten year life and is completely recyclable.

The first proud owners of the SMC Solar-2 solar light in the UK are Mainline Tool & Plant Hire. Coralie Mortimer, Marketing Manager at Mainline Tool & Plant Hire said:  “We like to offer customers all the latest equipment and technology so these ground-breaking new solar lights from Morris Site Machinery were top of our shopping list.  Our customers were quick to see the benefits and the lights barely touched the ground in our depot before they were out on a twelve month hire contract.  We’re very satisfied with their performance as a highly sought-after hire product and our customers enjoy the cost savings on fuel and the low CO2 emissions”.

Morris Site Machinery invests in new products to help customers stay one step ahead, recognising the increasing importance European rental companies place on sustainability. Bringing exciting developments and industry firsts to market, like SMC Solar-2, underlines this commitment.

David Gray, recently appointed European Business Development Manager at Morris Site Machinery, will be attending the Awards on June 3rd and said: “As a leader in lighting solutions, we are proud of developing the SMC Solar-2 Lighting Tower and delighted with our nomination.  The tower does not compromise on power or quality and delivers a truly sustainable product to meet industry demand. It is a leading light for all the right reasons.

“It’s also an exciting time for me personally in my new European development role and I am looking forward to the Awards ceremony and establishing contacts and developing further relations across the European Rental Industry.”

David will focus initially on Central Europe to promote Morris Site Machinery products and develop European markets for its range of lighting towers, generators, welder generators, pumps and power washers.
