A playful take on a May Day favourite

May – GT Access

When GTAccess, a national powered access rental company found out they’d won the North Worcestershire ‘Celebrating the Natural Environment for Business’ calendar competition for the month of May their choice of theme was perhaps an obvious one but they decided to add a playful twist.

As a company that’s been helping a diverse range of industries, contractors and individuals to work safely at height on a daily basis for more than 30 years, GTAccess decided that their photoshoot for May should stay on theme with a playful take on a typical May Day favourite. They decided that Instead of a wooden pole they would use one of their newly purchased Genie Z45XC boom lifts to stand in as the Maypole, one of a number of new ‘Xtra Capacity’ powered access platforms that have recently been added to their growing fleet of over 1,600 machines. The platform was adorned with a multitude of brightly coloured ribbons before being raised high in to the air with members of the GTAccess team dressed to portray the diverse array of trades that the company serves. The team danced round the Maypole/boom trying to carry out the relatively complex Maypole manoeuvres in the correct order while at the same time continuing to smile for the camera.

Managing Director Jonathan Till says: “Maybe the theme of May Day and the Maypole were an obvious choice for us to take, but as is the case with everything we do as a company we decided to add our own individual take on it.”

The photoshoot itself was carried out at the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in Bromsgrove, in the heart of North Worcestershire. GTAccess are no strangers to Avoncroft as they have generously helped the charitable trust supplying them with powered access platforms as they strive to rescue, preserve and conserve historic buildings for future generations.

Justin Kite, Marketing Manager at GTAccess commented “The whole team had so much fun developing the idea and doing the photoshoot that we think its a great team building exercise and are now running an internal competition to generate ideas for the remaining months of the year.”
