Matilsa appoints UK dealer
Matilsa, the Spain-based producer of aerial work platforms, has appointed Russon Access as its UK distributor. The announcement was made at last week's bauma exhibiton in Munich, Germany, and marks Matilsa's first break onto the UK market. The company also used the bauma show to introduce two brand new articulated boom models, which will be reviewed in the April/May issue od Cranes & Access.
Since its origins back in 1991, Matilsa has since sold around 3,500 aerial work platforms onto the Spanish market, while 2004 marks the first year in which the company has looked at exporting its machines. The company said that two machines in particular sold during the bauma show, may well be the first ever Matilsa models to land on UK shores.
Russon Access was also recently appointed the UK and Ireland distributor for The Netherlands-based producer of heavy-duty scissor lift platforms, Holland Lift, effective from March 1.
