New from Liftlux

Liftlux will use the APEX exhibition in Maastricht to launch four or five new products.

Speaking to, managing director Pierre-Yves Le Daëron said that the new models will extend both the range of very large scissor lifts and the company’s specialist range of small, compact scissors.

“We are, and will continue to be, a manufacturer of niche products rather than a broad range manufacturer” said Le Daëron, adding that the range of booms acquired with TKD had now been fully integrated into Liftlux – “these are also niche products and offer very stiff, very high capacity booms with large baskets”.

Frank Thierer, formerly managing director of TKD, has been appointed vice president of sales worldwide for Liftlux. Thierer had until now been responsible for Germany and northern Europe).

Le Daëron, who was previously business development manager at parent company Potain, described the access market as full of potential for growth but said that a big problem facing the industry is the difficulty that rental companies currently face in obtaining finance.
