KLUBB becomes the owner of the Comilev drawings and brands in order to accelerate the development of its range of truck mounted lifts for network activities. This acquisition allows the creation of 25 jobs.
Extenso 3 Scheme
Ferrières-en-Brie, February 8, 2017 – KLUBB, which designs and manufactures KLUBB aerial platforms, announces the acquisition of all the intangible assets of Comilev, following the winding-up of the company. These assets include the brands, know-how and all the drawings of the vehicle mounted work platforms, including the Xtenso range, which is the most efficient to date for the networks companies, in particular with the Xtenso 3 model.
« As part of our development strategy, we began several months ago to work on the design of a range of truck mounted lifts. To this end, we recruited the heads of the Comilev R&D team, which were made redundant after the company went into administration in 2016. The acquisition of the Comilev product drawings will logically accelerate the launch of our range in this market segment. » explains Julien Bourrellis, president of KLUBB.
In order to manufacture its truck mounted lifts, KLUBB has just acquired a new plant of 13 000 m2, in addition to the existing infrastructures of 20 000 m2 just outside Paris.
« We are proud to announce the immediate creation of 25 jobs to produce these machines. Comilev’s know-how in truck mounted lifts, combined with our expertise in van mounted lifts will enable us to offer a complete range of aerial work platforms for the European market. Since the launch of our range of KLUBB aerial lifts at the end of 2015, we have created more than 60 jobs in France.» added Julien Bourrellis, President of KLUBB. The Group now has over 220 employees.
Aerial platforms with and without outriggers: what are the differences?
Why do some vehicle-mounted aerial work platforms have outriggers and others do not? The presence or absence of an outrigger is a feature that is relevant for the safety of your operations at height and for other road users. Outriggers are mechanical devices that increase the stabilisation of the vehicle in order to improve the performance of a platform, such as the working outreach and/or the load carried in the basket. Here are some explanations that will help you understand the importance of equipping your vehicle with outriggers or not.
