Almac has appointed CPL (Cumberland Platforms) as the exclusive UK distributor for its AlmaCrawler aerial work platform product line.
CPL was established in 2011 by Paul and Michela Murphy to mount and distribute light truck and van mounted platforms. In 2018, French manufacturer Klubb then acquired a majority stake in the business - see: Klubb acquires CPL. Earlier this year it was confirmed as the full line UK distributor for Palfinger Platforms, having been the Palfinger Italia dealer since 2017.
CPL managing director Paul Murphy, said: "We have seen incredible growth in CPL over the past few years and to help with this continual success I wanted a quality product that could be sold and maintained by us without impacting our production. I was impressed with the Almac product and its quality. Once I visited the factory and met the Almac team my mind was made up, Almac is a perfect fit in the CPL portfolio, and I’m really excited for 2022 and beyond."
Almac general manager Andrea Artoni, added: "We are delighted to partner with CPL for our AWP Line products in the UK. Through this partnership we will consolidate our presence throughout the UK, strengthening our sales and support service for the Bibi, Jibbi and Billennium products that our customers have come to appreciate. We strongly believe this new partnership with the CPL team will create great results since we share core values and operate with the same professionalism and determination."
