Lobo secures £600k deal to supply Amazon’s US sites

A Derbyshire-based Scaffolding system specialist, has secured a £600,000 deal with Amazon to supply its technology to the e-commerce giant’s distribution centres in the US.

LOBO Systems, the Alfreton Road firm has won the orders for its Advanced Platform System.

Amazon has elevated Lobo to be a globally approved and has 30 distribution centres across America that require the company’s system immediately to complete maintenance tasks as it doesn’t require tools to assemble, to access awkward areas above and around their conveyor units, which are in constant use.

In a statement, Amazon said: “We have been extremely impressed with the flexibility, quality and versatility of Lobo.

“In a very short time, it has proven to be a perfect investment for the company.

“Safe access to our conveyor systems is now possible and Lobo provides a cost-effective way.”

Lobo said it performed an extensive and lengthy process to obtain approval by Amazon Global Engineering and all import compliance to safety regulations, which enabled the orders to be placed.

Robert Bokros, Lobo Systems inventor and chief executive, said: “The Lobo Advanced Platform System has revolutionised the way industry works safely at height.

“Evidence from satisfied users illustrates incredible cuts in scaffolding costs, reduced downtime while waiting for it to arrive, erected and less reliance on outside scaffolding contractors.

“In most cases, the payback time for Lobo is measured in months when compared to conventional scaffolding.”
