JLG Industries has appointed Riwal as its sole distributor for Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
Karel Huijser, JLG EMEA’s vice president and managing director commented, “For many years, we have known Riwal to be a strong and knowledgeable distributor, offering a unique level of service and delivering the best customer experience. We are excited to extend our partnership with Riwal into growing markets like Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro.”
As the sole distributor for the region, Riwal will be responsible for sales, marketing, training and after sales service for the full range of JLG aerial work platforms. Riwal will serve customers such as rental companies as well as end users in construction, manufacturing and logistics.
Norty Turner, CEO of Riwal added, “We have extensive expertise with the JLG brand in our rental fleet and benefit from being the sole JLG distributor in the Netherlands and Poland. Our highly motivated teams in the Balkans will be able to extensively develop the local access equipment business which has great potential as new equipment purchases are increasingly prevalent alongside traditional used equipment procurement.”
