Bil-jax targets Europe with new Summit line

24 April 2008

“We want to dominate the trailer sector, that's our plan”, said Chuck Hutchinson, Bil-jax vice president of sales and marketing, “We don't want to be second fiddle to anyone on trailers.” CE marking for Europe will be completed by the middle of this year.

The three new machines are all articulated, comprising the 35 ft platform height 3522A, the 45 ft 4527A and the 55 ft 5533A (in each case the second pair of digits represents outreach in feet). A 36 ft telescopic Summit model was launched last year and a 46 ft telescopic will be added by the end of the year.

All the machines offer self-levelling hydraulic outriggers and the articulated models have a negative reach on the upper boom which, said Mr Hutchinson, “opens up the working envelope at 15-20 ft height levels”.

Mt Hutchinson said Bil-jax will continue to sell Aerial Access's all-hydraulic trailers in North America. Darren Kell, business development director at The Tanfield Group, which owns Aerial Access, said the company was happy to continue selling its trailers through Bil-jax in North America and that it was “currently exploring ways to strengthen that relationship, with a view to Aerial potentially selling certain Bil-jax products in Europe.”
