Faresin president, Sante Faresin, says the joint venture with Haulotte Group had been a “happy marriage” but the terms of the agreement had proven too limiting for both companies

“Companies have to have good products and the freedom to sell them”, he says, “We were like an engine going at full speed, but with a block of concrete on our shoulders.”

With the partnership now dissolved, Faresin can sell its products directly in key territories where it couldn't previously – including France, Spain, Germany and the UK – and Mr Faresin says there has been an immediate response from potential buyers in France and Spain.

Faresin now aims to further develop its range. It recently launched a compact version of its 7.30 model – 2.0 m wide rather than the standard 2.3 m – and an entirely new model, the 7 t, 10 m RH10.70, will be available with or without stabilisers

Mr Faresin says further models will be launched at the Bauma show, including a 6 m model weighing just 4 t, and two rotating units, both 4,5 t capacity machines with 15 and 18 m lift heights
