AllightSykes will be promoting the nine-strong SMC line-up of LED, solar and Metal Halide towers within its celebrated Allight range available through its network of overseas territories including South East Asia, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa, where 24 units have just been snapped up by AllightSykes dealer, Barloworld Power.

For Morris Site Machinery, the move is the latest step in a confident campaign to power its growth through international sales and aftermarket partners.

Chief Executive Chris Morris said: “As a business, securing the right sales and service partners is as essential as providing the ultimate product. This new partnership locks down a very important part of the world for us and will strengthen our hold and impact in emerging territories. It signals an exciting step change for our global ambitions.”

For AllightSykes the best-selling TL-90 LED and the solar-powered options will offer construction and civil works customers robust, safe and economical solutions.

Paul Sowerby, Director at AllightSykes commented: “We’ve been looking for a tight-fit metro lighting partner for some time. The technology behind the SMC brand is unquestionable and we’re delighted to have also landed on a business in Morris Site Machinery which shares our core values and commitment to innovation and quality. Early indications suggest we’ll see traction for this offering very quickly.

SMC’s success has stemmed from its British-built durability, small footprint and whisper quiet sound levels of just 60dB(A) (at seven metres). This has made it the tower of choice for projects such as metropolitan road works around Europe and Russia; where noise restrictions pose a problem for many other tower brands.”

As well as being compact and economical, the 2015 SMC TL-90 is also expected to win the environmental vote. It is powered by a clean, quiet, fuel efficient Kubota D905-BG diesel engine and comes with fuel spill containment tray as standard. The TL-90XTRA comes with either four efficient 1000w Metal Halide lamps or five 240w LED lamps. All models have hydraulic mast raise and optional light tilt.

Chris Morris added: “This really is an exhilarating time for our business with our overseas ambitions taking shape and Allight has the reputation, after service support and customer base to inject some real dynamism into these territories.”
