Genie has appointed sales and service company Staplerwelt Süd as its distributor for Southern German, responsible for Saarland, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, parts of Rhineland-Palatinate and Thuringia.
Based in Bietigheim-Bissingen in Baden-Württemberg, Staplerwelt Süd is now a sales and service company, having sold its rental fleet and a number of locations to Zeppelin back in 2016 – see: Zeppelin acquires Stapler-Rent
The company will be responsible for sales and after sales support in these regions with a particular focus on end users, contractors and smaller rental companies. In addition to new machines it will hold a stock of Genie replacement parts. The company also represents Merlo, Ausa and Eleva and is a service provider for Haulotte and Skyjack.
Markus Bandura, Genie territory sales manager for Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland, said: "Staplerwelt Süd benefits from an excellent reputation for responsive, skilled service and good geographical coverage in the region. They are dynamic and cooperative and, within the few months that we have been working together, their presence has already proved a success. As soon as it is possible, an open day and further activities will be planned."
Staplerwelt managing director, Andreas Konstantin, added: "For us, quality is paramount. Genie, and the 53 years of experience and continuous innovation they bring to their products, as well as their brand values, are an excellent fit with our sales concept and portfolio. Thanks to our many years of know how in the rental business, we know the needs of rental companies and can cover short term requirements with our stock of new and used machines. We are convinced that fleet owners will be quick to realise that they have a lot to gain in choosing Genie, a global leader in the industry, backed by our local support with a team of three sales representatives, 15 service technicians and a high-performance workshop, to reap the benefits of high returns on investment in the long term.”
