Haulotte Group has started production of its Compact 10 and 12 electric scissors at its Chinese facility in Changzhou. The company has been producing 6 and 8 m scissors at the plant for the past 18 months.

Five of the larger scissors have now been produced at the plant and two are destined for an end user customer in Shanghai.

Damien Gautier, Haulotte's managing director for Asia Pacific, speaking to Access International at the BICES exhibition in Beijing at the end of October, said that booms and rough terrain scissors were not yet being made at the facility. He said new products were being introduced step by step to ensure that production quality was the same as in France.

The vast majority of the machines produced in China are exported for other Asian markets.

Meanwhile, Mr Gautier said that earlier this year Haulotte appointed a new dealer for South Korea, B&B Global Co, based in Seoul. Mr Gautier said they had made a successful start.
