Avant Tecno USA and Leguan Lifts have formally announced their partnership and distribution plans for the North American market. Beginning in October 2020, Avant Tecno USA and select dealers in their extensive network will begin promoting, selling and servicing the Leguan 190 spider lifts designed for tree care, heavy duty professional and rental use.
Synergies achieved through partnership
According to Jukka Kytomaki, President of Avant Tecno USA, the two companies will benefit from synergies related to, among other things, customers, product portfolio and extensive industry expertise.
“Similar to the Avant product line, Leguan Lifts were carefully designed paying meticulous attention to durability, safety and user friendliness,” said Kytomaki. “The Leguan 190 access platform specifically has unbeatable features including automatic leveling with a single push of a button, high platform capacity over the entire working area, all-terrain capabilities and sturdy boom design.”
Jori Mylläri, Export Manager of Leguan Lifts, is both excited and optimistic about introducing Leguan Lifts to the North American market.
“Avant Tecno USA has strong focus in the arborist market, which is one of the fastest growing market segments for us also in Europe and Oceania. The vast dealer and service network of our new distributor enables us to offer the best customer service and aftersales for all customer segments throughout the continent.” said Mylläri.
Ambitious plans for sales growth
Avant Tecno USA has spent the past few months preparing its sales, service and operations teams to offer Leguan local sales, marketing and after sales service for various industries and customer segments – primarily those in the tree care and rental sectors. The team at Leguan Lifts factory recently hosted a 3-day virtual sales and service training for Avant Tecno USA in September 2020 in preparation to begin the promotion and sales of Leguan Lifts’ products in United States and Canada.
“Leguan Lifts already has large market share in many of the European and Australian markets, and we are excited to introduce these high-quality machines to our product portfolio,” said Kytomaki.
“After witnessing the level of commitment and readiness of the Avant Tecno USA team, we have set high expectations for the sales growth in the North American market,” adds Mylläri.
