Alastair Robertson, owner of US aerial platform sales company Universal Equipment, has formed a new company to sell HH-Intellitech's material handling units in North America.

HH-Intellitech USA, Llc will sell three of the Danish company's products in the US and Canada. Two of these models - the 350 kg capacity GlasLift 770 and the 500 kg capacity GlasLift 1100 - are self-propelled units that can handle a wide range of panels, glass and cladding materials. The third, the 500 kg capacity Gerenuk 1100, is an attachment for telehandlers, forklift trucks and truck mounted cranes.

Mr Robertson will be assisted in the new business by his son Struan, and the company is based in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.

Struan Robertson told IRN that the new business was "currently looking for dealers and reps that are interested in working with us. As of now, we are working with the rep group Cardinal Sales that covers most of the northeast of the US."

HH-Intellitech ApS is based in Denmark and has created a niche market for compact material handling machines. The smaller of the self-propelled models weighs 580 kg and has travel width of 840 mm, while the GL1100 weighs 1410 kg and is 950 mm wide. The Gerenuk attachment weighs 720 kg.

Alastair Robertson is very well known in the North American rental industry, having traded new and used aerial platforms for several decades.
