The fleet includes heavy duty scissor lifts over 66ft

The new orders comprises more than 70 large machines, including boom lifts from 135ft to 185ft, high capacity telehandlers, scissor lifts above 66ft and spider cranes all for delivery in 2019 and 2020. The new machines are being add to the fleet to keep pace with demand. The fleet is already approaching 250 units, all of them larger or specialist/niche machines.

The company is also adding to its logistics, service support and sales across several European countries. The company’s initial objective was to support Mateco’s operations in 15 European countries, along with its branches in Malaysia, Mexico, Panama and Chili. However, an increasing percentage of the Specialist business now comes from independent rental companies.

Guillaume Getas, who heads up Special Equipment said, “We focus on equipment that is not easily available on the market, either due to low local demand or high acquisition costs and slow returns. Through a vast network of rental partners, third party repair shops and transport companies in multiple countries; our business model is financially sound and our activity sustainable.”
