A-Plant is celebrating a key local authority win after securing a three year Framework Contract as the Number One supplier to Hull City Council for the hire of Plant for Highways and Street Lighting.

The contract, which has an option for a further year following the initial three years, is valued at around £180,000 per annum and A-Plant is supplying a full range of Small and Large Plant for use in the Hull region - from Air Tools, Compaction Plates and Rollers to Excavators, Telehandlers and Lighting Towers. Equipment for the contract is being supplied by A-Plantís depot in Hull and supported by A-Plant Service Centres across Yorkshire, including Immingham, York, Lincoln and Rotherham.

Emma Winter, Procurement Service Manager for Streetscene at Hull City Council said: ďA-Plant has been selected as Hull City Councilís preferred supplier for the hire of Plant for Highways and Street Lighting. A-Plant has demonstrated that they are able to provide the best quality equipment and service at the best price in the current market.Ē

Hull has a resident population of over 250,000 and the city has undergone significant regeneration in recent years, with the opening of St Stephenís, a £200 million retail-led scheme and the development of the £165 million Humber Quays scheme on Hullís waterfront which has rapidly become the cityís most exclusive business address having attracted high profile companies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Barclays Commercial and World Trade Centre Hull and Humber which connects into more than 90 countries and 750,000 businesses.

Over £1.5 billion of investment is currently transforming the city. Although work is concentrated in specific areas, high quality public spaces, exciting street scapes, bridges, pedestrian routes and crossings are being created to help make pedestrian flow around the city easy, enjoyable and safe.
