This 14 m GTBZ14E model is one of the new range of booms and scissor lifts from XCMG.

The new aerial platform division of XCMG has launched eight scissor and boom models at Bauma China.

Xuzou Firefighting and Safety Equipment has introduced three 6m, 10m and 12m working height models and, along with three telescopic booms with 22m, 26m and 30m working heights and a pair of 14m telescopic models, with and without jib.

The division was set up at the beginning of this year in response to the growing interest in aerial work platforms in China. As its name suggests, the division also produces firefighting platform and other related equipment.

General manager Li Qian Jin, speaking on the opening day of the show, told AI that the company had introduced an advanced research and development facility aims to develop its service provisions and finance offerings to compete with the world’s biggest AWP manufacturers.

It is currently focusing on the China market and intends to produce 2000 scissors and 250-300 booms next year, with a sales value of around RNB250-300 million. Mr Li said once it had built up the quality of its products it would focus on Europe and a potential partnership with an existing manufacturer there.

“We are at the very beginning but we plan to rebuild the access market in Chin. Only a manufacturer that provides service, financial support and after sales offerings can be a major player,” added Mr Li.
