Ben Hopton, Appointed Person, Sparrow Crane Hire
Recently we were working with AB2000 crane and slinger on a telecoms decommissioning project on the rooftop of a shopping centre and the working conditions were not ideal, the rooftop was frozen over and there was a lot of lifts to get done in the available time, some of which were not easily accessible. Both of your guys were co-operative and keen to get the job done.
Can you pass on my thanks to your slinger Drew and driver Dougie for their efforts today at Cumbernauld shopping centre.
They were a pleasure to work with and a credit to your company.

Frazer Mitchell, Works Manager, Crummock (Scotland) Ltd
Concrete Pump Hire Scotland.
just wanted to take the time to let you know that the level of professionalism from you employees is outstanding. The pour involved on Friday required 3 Pump set-ups on the same site which were originally unplanned. The operative we had on site was great and worked well with our team to ensure all our targets were met.
Let him know we appreciate all the hard work from himself.

Vivienne Watson, Office Manager, PHI Group
We have worked with AB2000 Ltd for the past 5 years, recently they have become an approved supplier to our company for both self drive and operated plant on our various sites from both their Glasgow and Nairn depots. We have an excellent working relationship with their Sales Rep. Steven who is always willing to fulfil our requirements in the complex industry and constantly changing environment. Highly Recommended.

Some feedback on the Skyrailer (Rail MEWP) and operator which has helped Portobello OLE Depot out over the past 6 or so weeks at Edinburgh Waverley .
Prior to the AB2000 SkyRailer being deployed to Edinburgh Waverley we had various reliability issues with various Unimog and Z60 type MEWPS. We also encountered issues with operator performance and ability to work within an extremely complex areas involving point/route setting and working within tunnels.
Three separate Overhead Line Works supervisors have feedback positively at our plan-do-review meetings (PDR) on the excellent reliability and positive performance of both machine and operator, the operator who is also the fitter is of significant benefit as he is very comfortable on the machine, very knowledgeable about the SkyRailer’s abilities, nothing is ever too much trouble and the supervisors are more confident of avoiding a possession overrun should the machine breakdown and he is the operator who can quickly become the fitter at a moment’s notice.
On behalf of the three supervisors and myself if I could pass all our thanks onto you and the operator, really appreciate the hassle free service.
Andrew Crombie, Area Operations Manager (Aggregates) – CEMEX Scotland
I think this Friday will see the plant hire finished at Cambusmore and more or less wrapped up for the year in the Scotland Area. I would like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and AB2000 the company for the support and service they have shown Cemex this year.
In a year when it has been extremely difficult to hire plant suitable for our projects – AB 2000 has never let us down on their promise, they have made plant available when required and I cannot speak highly enough of the operators that have been supplied on each job.
• Chris – you have worked with my teams and came up trumps each time – top marks
• Hired plant – very reliable
• Hired plant staff – A great bunch of guys
Your company has helped us complete our projects at Cambusmore, Cowieslinn, Collessie, Hyndford and Temple this year – on time and within budget. I look forward to more of the same next year,
Joe Elder, Director, Mitchell Engineering Ltd
“Mitchell Engineering use AB2000 test weights and crane hire regularly as part of the proof load testing of our fabricated frames and structures. They have a large selection of crane and test weights available, with friendly staff and reliable service. I would be happy to recommend AB2000.”
David Barton, Port Operations Manager, Babcock International Group
AB2000 have provided excellent support to our expanding Port Operations business at Rosyth over the last 2 years. Not only are they a very professional and prompt organisation, they are also incredibly personable and bring a smile to the job. Where AB2000 have really stood out for me, and makes them the first phone call, has been their ability to go beyond the call of duty and come up with problem solving solutions with minimal notice and no fuss, resulting in the job completing for us and our clients. I look forward to a long and successful working relationship.
Cathal Doherty, Project Manager UK, Roadbridge
Roadbridge won our first civil engineering contract in Scotland in September 2010. AB2000 were the first subcontractor to hire plant and equipment to us at the time and we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship ever since. We have found AB2000 to be very professional, well organised and helpful company who are always willing to assist or help out no matter how difficult the request from us may be.
Roadbridge look forward to many more years of working with AB2000.
Colin Denholm, Allanshaw Engineering Co.Ltd
Having had a very strong relationship with AB2000 since the forming of the Crane Division, we have worked in many locations throughout Scotland on various major contracts and have always had excellent service and commitment from the AB2000 staff, always prompt and precise in carrying out lifting operations as required.”
Keep up the good work and all the very best for the future.

Willie Doherty, Construction Manager, Iberdrola
Hi Sandra, may I take this opportunity to thank yourself and your crane operator who works under the pseudonym of ( Sharky), I believe his proper name to be Mr Barkley. Personally I want to thank you Sandra for your co-operation in securing the loading pads , without your gallant effort the operation would not have been a success, in-fact it would have been nothing short of a disaster in the eyes of my senior management. The crane operative was very competent in every aspect of the word, his level of safety and his controlled manner is a credit to AB2000 and those who work close with him especially those who are, appointed persons. The plant and equipment including the operatives and management staff provided by AB2000 was superior. I do however realise the AB2000 were sub-contracted in, to do this complex lift, as the landing location was totally obscured by a building , yet the guys were very professional in the safe landing of the transformer. In the future I will recommend AB2000 to the suppliers of the transformers. I look forward to working with you and AB2000.
