Vehicle mount specialist CPL has become the exclusive UK dealer for Palfinger’s aerial platforms, with working heights 13 to 90m.
CPL, which operates three plants in Kettering in Northamptonshire, signed the new distribution deal last week after working with the manufacturer for several years.
Paul Murphy, managing director at CPL, said, “The relationship has grown from strength to strength with a mutual understanding and respect for both companies. Becoming the new dealer and service provider for the larger Palfinger platform equipment is a great privilege, and we are excited to showcase our commitment to all aspects of the customer journey.”
It originally partnered with Italy-based Palfinger in 2015 and has since offered the manufacturer’s aerial platforms on trucks of up to 3.5 tonnes.
Michael Gruböck, Palfinger’s managing director sales and service EMEA, said, “Over the years, CPL has become an excellent partner for Palfinger in the segment of 3.5-tonne aerial work platforms in the UK.
“Now it is time to further develop this partnership by signing a new dealership contract for the complete Palfinger product range with working heights from 13m to 90m.
“With CPL’s sales and service competence and the Palfinger product range we will achieve profitable growth in the UK within the next few years and support our customers in the best possible way”
