Genie has appointed Staplerwelt Süd, as its new distributor for Southern Germany in Saarland, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, parts of Rhineland-Palatinate and Thuringia.
In addition to increasing the availability of the Genie portfolio in South Germany, since signing up with the manufacturer in April, it expands the Genie customer service offering and the provision of its spare parts.

Based in Baden-Württemberg, the company will focus on providing support for end-user contractors and smaller rental companies, and owns its own stock of Genie equipment.
Arjen Snijder, Genie sales director Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the Nordics and key accounts Terex AWP, said, “We are pleased to have a highly competent partner like Staplerwelt Süd in our network. Staplerwelt brings the experience and expertise to provide the high level of service that customers expect.”
Markus Bandura, Genie territory sales manager for Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Terex AWP, added, “Staplerwelt Süd are dynamic and cooperative and, within the few months that we have been working together, their presence has already proved a success. As soon as it is possible, an open day and further activities will be planned.”
Andreas Konstantin, managing director of Staplerwelt, continued, “Thanks to our many years of know-how in the rental business, we know the needs of rental companies and can cover short-term requirements with our stock of new and used machines. We are convinced that fleet owners will be quick to realise that they have a lot to gain in choosing Genie, a global leader in the industry, backed by our local support with a team of three sales representatives, 15 service technicians and a high-performance workshop, to reap the benefits of high returns on investment in the long-term.”
In July, the company will become one of the first in Germany to offer the new Genie Z-45 FE hybrid articulating boom lift. ”We want to use it to help our customers expand their green product range to adapt to today’s increasingly strict environmental requirements,” added Konstantin.
