Italian spider and special boom lift manufacturer Platform Basket has appointed China’s leading aerial work platform manufacturer Dingli as its exclusive distributor for China.
The move comes as Chinese access rental companies and end users take a greater interest in the spider lift platforms. In order to give the new partnership a good launch Dingli’s deputy general manager Xu Zhong visited Italy earlier this month with a group of 15 Chinese rental companies in order to see the Platform Basket facilities in Poviglio near the city of Parma in Reggio Emilia.
The group also visited the Magni Telehandlers facility in Castelfranco Emilia near Modena, as Dingli is also the exclusive distributor for Magni in China and holds a 20 percent stake in the Italian company.
The Magni facility is also home to the Dingli European (Italy) R&D centre, which has designed the latest range or European specification boom lifts under the watchful eye of Magni owner and founder Ricardo Magni.
