Chinese aerial platform manufacturer Hunan SINOBOOM Heavy Industry Co., Ltd (Sinoboom) is to expand its product line to include a 15 m articulated self-propelled boom and a 10 m working height scissor lift and will next year start to CE-mark its machines for the European market.

Exhibiting at the Bauma China exhibition in Shanghai, Hunan-based Sinoboom told Access International that it will soon begin production of a 15 m working height, articulated boom truck mounted platform, a 15 m articulated self-propelled boom and a 10 m scissor lift.
