INTERMAT 2018: Manitou Group is developing the handling solutions of the future
The Manitou group will be at this year’s INTERMAT, the international exhibition for construction and infrastructure, from 23rd to 27th April, 2018.
To keep pace with a fast-growing sector, the group develops innovative solutions geared towards increasingly optimized total cost of ownership. Two new aerial work platforms will be unveiled, and the Gehl RT215 Compact Track Loader is also getting an upgrade with a new hydraulic control system. Visitors to the show will get a sneak preview of two new rough-terrain forklift trucks – the MC 25 and the MC 30 –, emphasizing the innovation that has been the hallmark of these products ever since the first model was launched 60 years ago.
Products on show in a vintage setting
Manitou is going for a decidedly retro stand this year as a tribute to the 60th birthday of its first forklift truck, and will be unveiling a whole host of solutions to meet all possible handling requirements at construction sites. 13 products will be on show, evidencing the complementary nature of the group's ranges. These will include two new forklift trucks, two new versions of existing aerial work platforms and a rotating telehandler that picked up a prize at the Intermat Innovation Awards. Three compact track and tire loader models made by Gehl and Mustang will also be on show at the group’s stand.
