A word from our founder: We’re celebrating our 10th birthday

“It’s hard to believe that 10 years have gone by already. Ten years since that January morning when we opened our doors as Horizon Platforms in Horbury, West Yorkshire, with a fleet of 12 small scissor lifts that would be transported with two Land Rovers and two plant trailers.
