German subsidiary for Jekko
24 November 2020
Italian mini crane manufacturer Jekko has established a new subsidiary in Germany, called Jekko Deutschland. Although Jekko has had a presence in Germany and Austria for the last five years, through its dealer NordKran, it hopes Jekko Deutschland will further extend its presence in German speaking areas.
Jekko says it identified the area as being of strategic importance and, as a result, wanted more direct supervision of its portfolio there.
Jekko Deutschland is headquartered in Witten. Carsten Bielefeld, who was a sales agent at NordKran, and Andreas Krome of Lift Service Krome, which manages Jekko after sales services in Germany, joined Kekko as shareholders of the new company.
NordKran will keep on supporting Jekko as a dealer in Northern Germany.
“With the establishment of Jekko Deutschland we want to make a step forward in the German market, which has always been attractive and challenging for Jekko due to its high quality demand,” said Jekko’s CEO, Diego Tomasella. “We have done a very good job in the last five years with our partner NordKran, that will remain not only our local dealer for a wide region in the Northern Germany but will extend and improve its products and services range for its customers. Our goal for Jekko Deutschland is to be more reactive and present both in sales and after sales for all kind of customers, from a single end user to a big rental company. Jekko’s range is growing with the introduction of a wide range of products and we believe that the German market will react in a positive way to our proposals.”
