Palfinger Platforms has launched two new models as part of its drive for expansion in the aerial platform market.

Stephan Kulawik, Palfinger Platforms' managing director,said, "We have finally left the mergers and reorganisation phase behind us. We are now ready to continue on our consistent expansion course jointly with our worldwide agents and partners. Priority will go to in-depth dialog with our customers."

The new models are the P 210 K 21m working height, truck mount, on a 3.5t GVM chassis and the P 300 KS 30m working height on a on a 7.5t GVW chassis.

The P 210 BK is described by Palfinger as more flexible and having a wider range of applications than any other. Its mobile boom system enables a special platform mode during which the jib can be moved without stabilisers The boom and jib design allows work to be carried out below ground level as well as at height and can to negotiate obstacles. Palfinger said there will be more innovations in this class later in the year.

The P 300 KS is designed for use in areas where conditions are cramped Palfinger said that It brings maximum manoeuvrability and comfort to the 7.5 t class because of the counter slewing system. The company also said that the appearance and durability of the machine have been improved.

Last year the Palfinger Platforms division generated €90 million in sales. The company has a large service network: Europe, and Germany in particular, are the biggest markets. Meanwhile, Palfinger access platforms are also sold to Russia, China, Australia and Ghana. The company said it has set its sights on North and South America as further target markets

Palfinger Platforms' future plans include the presentation of new standards in the large equipment sector for Bauma 2013. Further development of maintenance and repair services will also be targeted for attention and the continuous improvements in the availability of spare parts and mobile servicing.
