US-based MEC Aerial Work Platforms has appointed Access Platform Sales (APS) as its exclusive distributor for the UK.

The appointment of APS gives MEC’s UK customers access to pricing, product demonstrations and aftermarket service for its products including the Titan Boom series and the new 6092RT Ultra-Deck. The latter is designed as a cost-competitive 20 m (60ft) rough terrain scissor lift. APS will also market the Crossover electric/diesel/Hy-Brid 4x4 scissors and Speed Level sigma lifts.

Part of the IAPS group APS is already the exclusive UK distributor for Hinowa tracked lifts and compact plant and owns the Hinowa UK brand. It is also an authorised full line Genie distributor and sole UK distributor for Isoli truck mounts, Ommelift, Wienold Lift and Youngman BoSS powered products.

MEC and APS agreed the deal in principle at Vertikal Days in the UK earlier this month. It follows almost two years of the group’s service and parts division assisting MEC by importing its products, conducting pre-delivery inspections and providing warranty support in the UK.
