Polish aerial lift distributor, service and refurbishment company Nifty4sale has opened a third location in Ostroleka, an hour northeast of Warsaw.
The new facility is now fully up and running and includes a 1,200 square metre workshop staffed by six mechanics, with plans to recruit further technical staff by the end of the year.
The company’s two other facilities are located in Tychy on the south side of Katowice and Bielsko-Biala near the Czech and Slovak borders in the south of the country.
While the new location increases the company’s geographic coverage, it also adds capacity which is required to cope with growing demand for its refurbishment, remanufacturing and repair business, which has been boosted by the long lead times for new machines, not to mention environmental considerations. Its appointment as an official Ruthmann partner in 2020 has also been a factor in looking for wider coverage and increased workshop capacity.
Sales and marketing co-ordinator Aneta Karpinska said: “The decision to expand in Poland and open a third location was a logical step in our business development strategy. We have increasingly found ourselves having to refuse customer’s looking for refurbishing and remanufacturing services, due to our limited capacity. An additional workshop and more mechanics will allow us to accept more orders. Our branch in Ostroleka will also provide service and after sales to all our customers from the central and northern part of the country."
Company manager Mark van Oosten added: “The opening of the workshop in Ostroleka, combined with our presence in the northern part of the country, will further strengthen our service capabilities in the rapidly growing work platform market. We see great potential in the aerial platform industry in Poland."
Nifty4sale is an officially recognised refurbishment and rebuild centre for Niftylift machines, which it does for customers across Europe. It also provides parts and service coverage alongside the sale of new and used platforms.
