PRESS RELEASE: Pilot Crushtec International stated that the catalyst which made this possible was its ability to provide several its Generac TowerLight systems to equipment hiring specialist Lambson's Hire at very short notice.

Sandro Scherf, CEO of Pilot Crushtec International CEO, explained: "Lambson's received an urgent request from its customer for seven sets of high-power lighting systems and we were able to provide an immediate response. We maintain a strategic stock of these products and were able to supply them in Lambson's distinctive house livery."

The product in question is the Generac VT8 which is equipped with four 1,000W metal halide floodlights. Each individual unit is capable of illuminating an area of up to 4,200m².

According to Scherf, Lambson's Hire inspected the products and found their quality and pricing to be highly competitive.

Pilot Crushtec International stated that the timeline for the supply of the Generac TowerLights is impressive as the original enquiry was received on April 6, orders placed on April 9 and delivery executed on April 22 - finished in the Lambson's distinctive red and white branding.

Devin van Zyl, CEO of Lambson's Hire, was impressed by Pilot Crushtec International's rapid and detailed response. The company, which has 14 branches and two specialised divisions in South Africa's Gauteng, Mpumalanga and the North West provinces, had yet to receive a response from other local sources of supply, and the alternative would have been to order units from overseas, thus delaying its customer's expansion plans.

Van Zyl commented: "The service we received was excellent right from the original enquiry. Pilot Crushtec International really came to the party by being able to deliver on time and to our specifications. Our customer is equally happy with the sturdiness of the Generac product and its lighting performance."
