Manitou new 28m telescopic access platform awarded Product of the year

May 4, 2012


Manitou new 28m telescopic access platform has received the
coveted 2012 Product of the Year Award from an international jury of professionals at the
IAPA (International Awards for Powered Access) in the category of self-propelled access
platforms. In particular, the machine has been commended for its overall excellence and
superior engineering.
The 280TJ and its 26m version (260TJ) had been unveiled at the Maastricht APEX show (a
leading international tradeshow for AWPs) in September 2011. These models are suited to a
wide variety of applications on construction sites as well as on industrial sites. The reputation
for reliability and quality of IC and electric access platforms (ATJ – AETJ) has contributed to
the recognition of 280 TJ features. Those ranges, together with the new machine, are being
developed and assembled at the Candé Product Unit (Maine-et-Loire, France).
Eric Lambert, President of the RTH (Rough Terrain Handling) Division, declared: “AWPs are a
standalone piece of Manitou’s material-handling offering. We are proud of what we achieved
on this tough market dominated by full-liners and powerful rental companies. Today, this
award recognizes the core strengths that make Manitou’s success and reputation: reliability,
technical innovation and constant attention to customers’ needs. We are confident this new
machine will be a success.”
