Manufacturer Gigieffe in Italy is building the presence of its Airo line of access platforms in the German market. It appointed two sales agents, Thomas Kaufmann and Andreas Zelmer, in July, and has named five service reps since February, Alessandro Manini, area manager for export, told AI.
The company is looking for two distributors or dealers as well. "We will have by the end of the year the network to be competitive," said Mr Manini.
Selling the Lionlift line into Germany since its founding in January is Lift-4-U, located near Nuremburg. Its owner, Armin Hümmer, also has a general construction equipment rental company and an outdoor lighting installation company.
