The deal was sealed at the PALFINGER AG headquarters, in Bergheim, Austria. Managing director Paolo Balugani and Thomas Perkmann (managing director of Palfinger EMEA) signed the agreement for Palfinger Platforms Italy - while Palazzani Industrie SpA was represented by signatory Davide Palazzani, chairman of the company.
In more detail, the agreement envisages a technical partnership aimed at enabling modifications to existing products in the Palazzani Industrie range with a view to offering products designed specifically for Palfinger Platforms Italy.
This activity will spread over all the models currently produced by the prestigious Brescia-based company, with working heights ranging from 27 m to the current 52 m (which is the highest limit offered worldwide for any tracked AWP).
Thanks to this synergy, Palfinger Platforms Italy will very soon be able to offer its customers one of the industry's most exciting product catalogues, including the newly released tracked aerial platforms with working heights spanning from 15 to 26 m (P 150 AJTK previewed at Bauma 2016) and then working up to the 52 m model guaranteed by this very agreement.
The TRACKED CLASS range available from Palfinger Platforms Italy will start with a 15 m AWP as the entry-level option and will work up to the aforesaid 52 m top-height model. This range will be marketed and supported on a technical level worldwide (assistance and parts) by the PALFINGER dealer network (Platforms Product).
