The range of Klubb electric platforms already includes the K20 on Nissan eNV200, the K20 on Goupil and the K26 on Renault Master ZE.
Improved production capacities: CPL and EGI acquisitions in 2018
In order to increase its production capacities and to diversify its product ranges, Klubb has acquires 2 companies in 2018.
First Kettering based CPL was appointed UK dealer for the range of Klubb van mounted platforms at the beginning of 2016. The success of this cooperation has led the companies to join forces to accelerate their development and growth within the UK, one of the largest van mounted platform markets in Europe.
Then Klubb acquired EGI to accelerate its international development thanks to Egi’s expertise in high-voltage insulated aerial platforms and on platforms mounted on vehicle for firefighting. The 12,000 m² factory is located on 7 hectares in the Ardennes and also allowed the group to increase its annual production capacity.
Innovations for its customers
We recognise that customers are demanding more innovation from vehicle-mounted aerial platforms (including van mount platforms, lift mounted on chassis or pick-up or truck-mounted access platforms) and are eager to update their existing machines more frequently to take advantage of new features and capabilities.
Consequently, KLUBB is committed to a process of continuously upgrading its product range, with improvements and enhancements based on customer feedback.
The best services for clients
Customer service is at the core of the group’s strategy. Klubb is able to provide customers with a full range of value-added services from financing to maintenance.
Therefore, every dealer in our network has to demonstrate a high level of excellence. They have to provide a comprehensive service facility as well as a sales function. This ensures that KLUBB customers are guaranteed the same superb level of service across Europe, and eventually across the world.
UNEVEN TERRAIN AND AERIAL WORK PLATFORMS: WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN?
Aerial work platforms provide better access to difficult-to-reach areas, and have revolutionised working conditions in many industries. However, the use of aerial platforms is not without risk, especially when they are operated on uneven or unstable terrain such as muddy or uneven ground. Indeed, each environment presents different challenges that every operator needs to identify and understand, in order to take specific precautions. As a reminder, the absence or lack of preparation can damage the platform and lead to serious or fatal injuries.
