Mainline Help Santa Claus! 

Every December, Ashby Rotary Club organises Santa Sleigh Runs around the local area. With Mainline as their trusted supplier, we provided them with the Generators that powered the Sleigh, Lights and Music.

Due to the success of the events, we received some lovely feedback

A very brief few words to say a big thank you for all your support in supplying a generator for our 2017 Santa Sleigh Runs.

The sleigh was out most evenings leading up to Christmas, and was also positioned at either Market Street Ashby -De-La-Zouch, Tesco, Aldi or Marks and Spencer’s food hall at the weekends. During this period, your generator provided power to the sleigh, and without it, Christmas lights and music would not have been possible.

The final total for the money raised by the sleigh runs has not yet been confirmed, but early indications are that this will exceed six thousand pounds, which will be distributed between our main charity, STEPS, and several other Rotary charities.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this was indeed a very successful year for the sleigh runs, and on behalf of Ashby Rotary Club, I once again say thank you for all your support for which we are truly grateful.”


Ashby Rotary Club, Richard Vans – Chair of Community Services

Mainline gives Twycross Zoo a lift

Twycross Zoo approached Mainline tool and plant hire for advice and assistance with a specialised lifting job, with the advice and recommended equipment that we subsequently hired enabling the job to be completed in a safe and efficient manner.  The driver employed to operate the lifting equipment was accommodating and understanding to the needs of the job and his skills and competency ensured that a unique job was completed to our requirements and satisfaction. We would not hesitate to consider using Mainline again in the future.

Funky Tents sing our praises…

Funky Tents opened an account with us after having received one of our mailers through their letter box. Here’s what they had to say about us after a recent event…

“As always the generators performed. As I keep saying to my manager, I really am glad the Mainline postcard came through the door at that time.  Thank you again for all your help so far”

Access & Training Division – The Glazing of Glass Wharf

The city of Bristol is gradually regenerating, especially in the old docklands area known as Temple Quay.  Glass Wharf is a south facing waterside promenade with more than its fair share of fashionable bars, cafes and restaurants.  It also provides aspirational office space for many businesses and a great environment for local people to enjoy.

A major improvement project is underway as one of the impressive glass sided buildings needs to be completely re-glazed.  The work is being carried out by The Glazing Face, an expert glazing solutions provider catering specifically for commercial, industrial and public service buildings.

Mainline Access & Training have supplied specialist access equipment required to carry out the delicate work.  One of Mainline’s 25 metre scissor lifts provides the perfect working platform for the workforce as they painstakingly replace each and every individual pane of glass on the massive building.  There are very few machines in the UK that can provide this degree of access and The Glazing Face needed to get to work quickly.  Mainline’s rapid response meant that the project was able to start promptly as required.

“After winning the works at Glass Wharf, Bristol, our client, Balfour Beatty, wanted us to have a prompt start.  There seemed to be a shortage of suitable equipment in the UK at the time and we were badly let down by our existing MEWP supplier on more than one occasion.  We were contacted by Lee Bodfield (National Sales Manager at Mainline Access & Training) who asked if he and Mainline could help.  The service has been impeccable and a machine was delivered to site within a couple of weeks of our first discussions.  After being on site for about a week, our client wanted a second team to start on another part of the building and again, Lee has provided a prompt service and a machine promised in a week.  Excellent service so far and looking forward to a long relationship with Mainline”.

“We soon discovered that Mainline make this challenging requirement very straightforward.  With a ‘can do attitude’ it is easy working with Mainline.  They provide a solution that you can be confident will do the job well, on time and on budget!  I like working with them because nothing is too much trouble and they will always go the extra mile”
