Beyer last minute Snorkel order
By Euan Youdale25 April 2013
German rental major Beyer Mietservice placed an order for 20 Snorkel booms on the last day of Bauma.
It will see Beyer expand its fleet with 20 Snorkel A38E battery powered self propelled booms. According to the manufacturer the deal followed extensive negotiations over the course of the trade show.
As Bauma came to a close on Sunday, CEO Dieter Beyer came back to the stand to confirm the order with Snorkel's Wim Jansink, district manager for central and eastern europe; and Enrique Garcia Delgado, regional sales manager for Europe.
Snorkel said Beyer was impressed with the low weight of the A38E compared to its working envelope. With a 100% electric boom, the machine is designed to be simple to use and reliable. "These A38Es will join a number of Snorkel S1930E compact electric scissor lifts already in the Beyer fleet," added Mr Jansink.
Founded in 1994 by CEO Dieter Beyer, Beyer Mietservice has grown to become a nationwide provider of construction equipment, cranes and aerial work platforms. In recent years it has further expanded outside Germany, to supply contractors in Austria, France, Switzerland and the Benelux countries. The company employs more than 140 people.
