Telehandlers for Ardent Hire

Ardent Hire has placed a £13 million order with Mawsley Machinery and Manitou Group for the supply of new telehandlers and rotational telehandlers. This latest package of machinery is part of Ardent’s continued focus on expanding and updating its rental fleet.

In addition to Ardent’s 50 14-metre Tier 5 MT1440 telehandlers, this latest order includes more than 40 MT625, MT732 and MT932 machines with an additional 20 to 30 MT625 models before the end of the year. Ardent’s fleet now exceeds 3,600 telehandlers, making it the largest telehandler provider in the UK.

The order also includes a new fleet of rotational telehandlers, including a number of MRT2150, MRT2550, MRT3050 and MRT3255 machines, which can tackle complex handling tasks in construction, civil engineering and facilities management. Delivered over the next three months, this order adds to Ardent’s increasing roto telehandler fleet, which has grown from 12 to 45 units in the last 12 months. The company wants to increase its fleet to 100 before the end of 2020.
