Mantall Heavy Industry, a privately owned aerial platform manufacturer based in Jiangsu, China, used the BICES show in Beijing to promote its range of booms, scissors, personnel lifts and material lifts.

Company president Lee Shen, who before founding Mantall five years ago was a Chinese dealer for Haulotte and other brands, told AI that the company would produce around 600 machines this year of which 30% are exported to markets in Asia, South America and Australia.

The product range includes self-propelled booms up to 32 m working height - a new 20 m model was shown on the stand - scissor lifts up to 18 m, and truck mounted platforms, including models using booms from Italian manufacturer Oil & Steel.

Mr Shen said Mantall will launch articulated self-propelled models in January next year, probably a 23 m model, but will eventually have a range of six knuckle booms.

Also next year the company will introduce its own range of truck mounted booms to complement its Oil & Steel machines. Shirley Li, Mantall's vice general manager, told AI that this would give it two ranges at different price points for a range of customer types.

Mr Shen told AI that he and his colleagues had more than 20 years of experience in selling aerial platforms in China, which gave them an advantage over other manufacturers in developing the Chinese market; "We already have a network for sales."

Although Mantall has so far focused its export sales in South America and Asia, the company said that last year it had sold some scissors and material lifts to an end user customer in Italy.
