July 2009 AJ Access Supplies Used Platforms and IPAF Training in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan based company, CMB Developments recently purchased a variety of Used Diesel Booms and Scissor machines from AJ Access Platforms. These are to be used in the petro-chemical service and support industry.

The machines supplied included, Genie Z45-25 Articulated Booms, Genie S45 Telescopic Booms, Genie GS2668RT and Genie GS3268RT Diesel Scissors. The delivery from Caldicot, South Wales to Baku, Azerbaijan and all logistics was organised by AJ Access Platforms, the specialist used platforms provider.

For the employees of CMB Developments to operate these machines safely and efficiently, IPAF training was also requested on site in Azerbaijan.

Mike Ashton, Training Manager for AJ Access Platforms Ltd, spent two days training CMB's employees on scissor lifts and self propelled booms, with the assistance of an Interpreter.

Mike Ashton comments “Carrying out IPAF training in Azerbaijan was a fantastic experience, the facilities provided were excellent and I was made to feel very welcome by Derek and his staff. AJ Access is committed to providing high quality training not only in the UK but also overseas”.

Derek, Managing Director remarked “Mike has completed his training of 8 members of my workforce and his professional manor to the trainees is commendable, even though there is a language barrier, with all instruction being via an interpreter.

Mike also went into great detail in all his explanations and instruction to ensure that all participants were 100% familiarized with the machines.

I can strongly recommend Mike Ashton to any other companies, and we will be asking for him by person to undertake any more training that CMB-D may require.”
