Award winning Manitou telescopic access platform
New 28m telescopic access platform wins IAPA (International Awards for Powered Access) in the self-propelled access platforms category.
In particular, the machine has been commended for its overall excellence and superior engineering.
The 280TJ and its 26m version (260TJ) had been unveiled at the Maastricht APEX show (a leading international tradeshow for AWPs) in September 2011.
These models are suited to a wide variety of applications on construction sites as well as on industrial sites.
The reputation for reliability and quality of IC and electric access platforms (ATJ - AETJ) has contributed to the recognition of 280 TJ features.
Those ranges, together with the new machine, are being developed and assembled at the Cande Product Unit (Maine-et-Loire, France).
Eric Lambert, President of the RTH (Rough Terrain Handling) Division, declared: ’AWPs are a standalone piece of Manitou’s material-handling offering.
We are proud of what we achieved on this tough market dominated by full-liners and powerful rental companies.
Today, this award recognizes the core strengths that make Manitou’s success and reputation: reliability, technical innovation and constant attention to customers’ needs’.
