Gateshead-based SEV Group has this month delivered its first batch of powered access equipment to its Romanian distributor, Electricom SA. The first order was made up of an 18 metre truck mounted platform, three 13 metre truck mounted platforms and one 17 metre truck mount, all of which are destined for the Romanian electricity distribution authority and an additional municipal authority.
Commenting on the purchases, Stefan Ponea, Electricom marketing manager, said: “The Romanian market is growing rapidly but is currently dominated by refurbished machines which do not have full Romanian approval for rent of re-sale to end users. With the help of SEV, we were able to obtain the Romanian authority’s ISCIR and Labour Safety approvals for the various models. We are now among those very few who are actually operating legally on the Romanian aftermarket.”
Also commenting on the order, Brian Wiggins, SEV export manager, said: “Whilst sales here are very price driven, we believe that we will open up a potentially huge market – certainly for trailer mounts up to 17 metres.”
