Jekko Delivers 2,000th Crane

 Sept. 23, 2020 - Jekko recently delivered the 2,000th crane it has manufactured during 20 years in the mini-crane business.

The delivery came during the JDL exhibition in France, where French dealer ATN Platforms accepted the milestone unit, an SPX650 crawler mounted model, which Jekko launched in July through a worldwide livestream presentation.

In the 20 years since Jekko developed the first model of a mini crane, the Treviso, Italy, manufacturer has consistently invested in new models and new lifting solutions that have drawn ever growing interest and have gained a prominent presence in the market.

The new SPX650 embodies cutting-edge technical solutions and innovations. It already promises to become a Jekko flagship.

The 2000th crane was delivered to ATN Platforms, which recently took the place of Fassi France and is the new Jekko dealer in the French market.

“We are so glad of having reached this important milestone, and delivering our 2,000th crane to our French distributor ATN Platforms makes us very proud,” said Alberto Franceschini, Jekko export manager. “France is one of the most important markets for us, and we have been operating there for 13 years, at first with Miltra, then with Fassi France, and now with ATN Platforms.”

Franceschini added, “We thank Mr. Roger Boutonnet, ATN Platforms president, and his son, Benoit, who first started the cooperation between Miltra and Jekko in 2007, and also Mr. Gilles Cheval and Mr. Frédéric Leclerc. Without their precious support, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
