We have received the sad news that Filip Deschrijvere, managing director and owner of Belgian aerial lift sales and rental company Rentalift, died suddenly from heart failure on Monday, March 30th. He was only 48.
Deschrijvere and his wife Marleen De Leersnyder founded Rentalift in 2000 in the town of Izegem, due north of Kortrijk, close to Roeslare. The company is the Belgian dealer for Multitel truck mounted and spider lifts, as well as Jekko mini and spider cranes and Almac tracked booms and scissor lifts.
The company also runs a rental fleet of aerial work platforms, including booms, scissor lifts, truck mounts and telehandlers and is still managed by the couple with eight employees.
In addition to his wife Marleen, he leaves behind son Michiel (22) and daughter Lieze (20).
