Beginning in October 2020, Avant Tecno USA and select dealers in their network began promoting, selling and servicing the Leguan 190 tracked lifts designed for tree care and other heavy-duty professional and rental use.

“Similar to the Avant product line, Leguan Lifts were carefully designed, paying meticulous attention to durability, safety and user friendliness,” says Jukka Kytömäki, Avant Tecno USA president. “The Leguan 190 access platform specifically has unbeatable features including automatic leveling with a single push of a button, high platform capacity over the entire working area, all-terrain capabilities and sturdy boom design.”

Jori Mylläri, export manager of Leguan Lifts, is both excited and optimistic about introducing Leguan Lifts to the North American market.

“Avant Tecno USA’s professional sales and service staff understand the North American customers’ needs, and together with them, we are able to offer the leading tracked-lift solutions to the market,” says Mylläri.

Avant Tecno USA, a manufacturer of compact loaders and attachments, has spent the past few months preparing its sales, service and operations teams to offer Leguan local sales, marketing and
after-sales service for various industries and customer segments –primarily those in the tree care and rental sectors. The team at the Leguan Lifts factory hosted a three-day virtual sales and service training for Avant Tecno USA in September 2020 in preparation to begin the promotion and sales of Leguan Lifts’ products in the United States and Canada.

“Leguan Lifts already has a large market share in many of the European and Australian markets, and we are excited to introduce these high-quality machines to our product portfolio,” says Kytömäki.

Avant Tecno USA is a subsidiary of Avant Tecno Oy, which is headquartered in Finland. All Leguan access platforms are manufactured in Ylöjärvi, Finland. Leguan Lifts is part of the Avant Tecno Group.
