Flourishing in the southeast

Malaysia is a fascinating market when it comes to AWPs, with truck mounts dominant in the country for now, but booms are starting to show their metal. AI spoke to two representatives from the industry there.
In one respect, Malaysia sums up the South East Asian market for AWPs, in that it is predominantly a used market. In another respect it bucks the trend of most other countries thanks to its reliance on truck mounts over self propelled booms, a cultural phenomenon that seems likely to continue in the short term but it may find it hard to resist the more mainstream boom in the future. AI spoke to two pioneers of the AWP sector, Johnson Lai, with a truck mount background and Alex Tan, who has boom and scissors experience.
