Reaching new heights with the new Leguan distributor in the UK

Leguan Lifts has reorganised its distributor network in the UK and has appointed Avant UK (together with chosen dealers) as the new distributor for the region. Previous distributor Central Platform Services will continue excellent work as a local Leguan dealer for the central parts of England. This change will increase the speed and quality of Leguan sales and after sales service to all regions of the market.


The official press release:


Seemingly against all odds, despite the global turmoil generated by COVID19 pandemic Avant UK clients, users, owners & operators in serval industry sectors saw yet again another growth year. Avant’s are available across the UK in 30 outlets from Somerset to Scotland. Avant boasts a strong dealership network covering all sectors from farming to construction, landscaping to property maintenance. We at Avant offer local UK support from a strong established dealership providing sales, service, technical support and hire.



As the Avant UK network goes from strength to strength, we can now offer the same level of service with the launch and addition of Leguan Lifts, the new generation access platforms, at selected specialist dealerships. Leguan Lifts, manufactured in Finland, is a subsidiary of the Avant Tecno Group, producing versatile and user-friendly all terrain spider lifts.

John Spencer, Sales and Marketing Director for Avant Tecno UK Ltd has these words to say about the launch “Over the past few years demand has grown not only from our never-ending loyal fan base of Avant® Loader owners but also from those owners and operators of our Leguan® spider Lifts. We are now in a position to offer the same level of expertise and service for the Leguan® lifts through a growing network of specialist dealerships through the UK, bringing the Leguan® spider lifts closer to the customer.

This year, we are unveiling, not only new and updated Spider lift models, our new and refreshed Leguan® branding but it’s also the 30th anniversary of Avant® Loaders being sold worldwide, so lots of exciting things to come from the Avant family.”

Jori Mylläri, VP, Sales & Marketing for Leguan Lifts Oy, talking about the UK Launch added “The introduction of the new generation Leguan spider lifts that come with many unrivalled features and user-friendly control have helped us reach new heights in recent years. It is time to introduce these products for the wider UK audience together with the professionals at Avant UK”.
