The team at Manitou North America hosted more than 200 Manitou, Gehl and Mustang by Manitou dealers at their 2019 dealer meeting in Milwaukee, Wis.
“Our Manitou North America Dealer Meeting provides a great opportunity to partner with our customers to gain a greater understanding of their needs and find opportunities to align with them to drive sustainable growth” said Mark Hanson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Manitou Group in North America. “It’s critical that our actions are tightly focused on the needs of our customers and that we work together to provide the right products, services and solutions for the markets we serve.”
New Manitou, Gehl, Mustang by Manitou and EDGE products for North America were shown to dealers for the first time at the Fiserv Forum, home of the Milwaukee Bucks NBA team. The arena set the stage for the new Manitou straight boom Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) that extend up to 85 feet, taking them to the top of the stands. Four new Manitou straight boom models, the TJ 65, TJ 65+, TJ 80 and TJ 85+, were introduced and are available now from dealerships across the United States and Canada. These smooth operators meet the new ANSI standards and offer platform capacities up to 900 pounds unrestricted on the “plus” models. Manitou also debuted equipment from its all-new compact equipment line. This new line includes a full range of skid loaders, track loaders and articulated loaders, including the new 1350 RT track loader and MLA-T 533 telescoping articulated loader.
