UpRent takes on Runshare
Chinese aerial lift company Runshare has appointed sales and rental company UpRent as its dealer for Croatia and the Balkans.
Established in the city of Split UpRent now operates from two locations, having opened a branch in Zagreb. The first Runshare platforms are due to arrive in Croatia in the next few weeks.
UpRent currently features Isoli, Genie, UpRight, JLG, Manitou and Teupen in its promotional efforts. It was also due to open additional outlets this year in Rijeka and Osijek, as well as moving into Bosnia Herzogovina, although as far as we are aware this has yet to happen.
Harold Amendt chief executive of Runshare Europe said: “Runshare continues to expand in Europe and is increasing the Runshare European distribution network. As part of this progamme we are pleased to announce that the Croatian company Uprent, will distribute Runshare's work platforms in the Croatian market and other Balkan countries”.
