TRACKED SCISSOR LIFT IS ON THE LEVEL IN AUSTRALIA

Italian scissor lift company AlmaCrawler has selected United Forklift and Access Solutions as exclusive national retailer for its Athena bi-levelling tracked scissor lift range and future products to be released in Australia.

The versatile and compact Athena can safely traverse slopes and terrain where other access equipment cannot operate at all, and is acknowledged internationally as a worksite safety asset and access problem-solver. The range is ideally suited to uses including construction and maintenance, industrial and commercial plant access, tradespeople and agriculture.

United Forklift and Access Solutions Managing Director David Maxwell said: “It is a huge achievement to be selected as exclusive national retailer by AlmaCrawler, the products of which are respected across five continents for their quality, excellence of engineering, manufacturing and service backup.

“Their quality and service ethos strongly complement our own, and the power of this partnership means the Athena scissor lift range and future AlmaCrawler products will further benefit from United’s expansion as one of Australia’s largest privately-owned forklift and access equipment companies, with Australia's most extensive range of forklift, scissor lift and boom lift equipment for sales and hire.

“With a footprint extending across key Australian markets, and service operations offering 24/7 response, United joins with AlmaCrawler in ensuring a truly national access solution that is highly responsive to local conditions and which, through this agreement, will further expand the market success of the Athena scissor lift range and lay the groundwork for future innovative products.”

The Athena is believed to be the first scissor lift in the world with its unique capabilities, being able to level on its axis in longitudinal and lateral directions to operate on slopes and uneven terrain. Conventional scissor lifts are typically limited to slopes of 2 to 4 degrees, whereas the Athena handles variations up to 50cm front-to-back and 38cm side-to-side on uneven terrain or inclines up to 20 degrees with assurance and safety, says United.

AlmaCrawler says the appointment of United as exclusive national retailer is integral to its strategy to strengthen its presence in the Australian market, where it has established Alma Pacific as its first direct branch. This new branch, located in Sydney, will allow AlmaCrawler to effectively support and service the Australian market, including United and its customers.

General Manager Andrea Artoni says the Australian market’s appreciation and reception of the company’s products have made Australia its first expansion territory. “The prospects for the future, combined with the high level of our deliberations, brought us to the decision to establish a direct presence on the market and open Almac Pacific to support strategic and executive customers,” he said.
