Genie Access Platforms in Thailand
Having recently received an order from a British company in Bangkok, Thailand, Working At Height's Ottie Whittle was sent to commission a number of Genie access platforms.

The customer Peter Curry commented 'Ottie did a great job here and I was impressed with how he quickly adapted himself to the training program once he realized that 90% of his class didn't speak English, everything went without a hitch, I was nervous that the Genie AWP's wouldn't fit through the door openings here, but we soon put that to rest, all of the participants gained a lot from the training and are now like kids with a new toy, watching them using the platforms shows that they took in all that was taught during the training, the Genie access platforms are just what we required here and thanks to Ottie we are confident that we will get the best out of them'.
