First European delivery for new XCMG access subsidiary
By Euan Youdale11 February 2022
XCMG has delivered its first batch of MEWPs in 2022, following its announcement in January that it would be expanding its aerial lift business into Europe.
The manufacturer’s newly-established subsidiary in Germany includes training, parts and service, all of which is designed to strengthen its offering to European rental companies.
The delivery of two containers of scissor lifts includes the XG0607DC and XG0807DC models, with working heights of 6m and 8m respectively, and lift capacities of 240kg and 230kg.
Ongoing developments in Europe will lead to further deliveries, says the company, including boom lifts, such as 22m and 28m diesel telescopic boom lifts and 16m and 20m electric articulating boom lifts. The company launched the new K boom lift series last year.
As the fourth largest construction equipment manufacturer, XCMG said its MEWP division is well placed to offer the necessary customer requirements across the world, and already offers an extensive product portfolio that includes telescopic boom lifts, articulated booms and scissor lifts.
