Avant Tecno USA and Leguan Lifts have formally announced their partnership and distribution plans for the North American market. Beginning in October 2020, Avant Tecno USA and select dealers in their extensive network will begin promoting, selling and servicing the Leguan 190 spider lifts designed for tree care, heavy-duty professional and rental use.
According to Jukka Kytömäki, President of Avant Tecno USA, the two companies will benefit from synergies related to, among other things, customers, product portfolio and extensive industry expertise.
“Similar to the Avant product line, Leguan Lifts were carefully designed paying meticulous attention to durability, safety and user friendliness,” said Kytömäki. “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 values stand for commitment, knowledge and experience, and they offer great customer service to all of their customers. Their professional sales and service staff understand the North American customers’ needs and together with them we are able to offer the leading spider lift solutions to the market,” said Mylläri. Ambitious plans for sales growth.
