Industrial electric mobile crane manufacturer Manitex Valla in Italy has a new general manager.

Fabrizio Girotti takes over the role from Carlo Forini. Girotti is already general manager at aerial work platform manufacturer Oil & Steel aerials. Oil & Steel is a sister company to Manitex Valla in the USA-headquartered Manitex International group.

Steve Filipov, Manitex International CEO, said, “I am pleased to announce that, effective January 1st, 2022, Fabrizio Girotti has been appointed general manager of Manitex Valla, in addition to his current responsibilities as general manager of Oil & Steel aerials. Our goal is to continue to invest and grow our share in this exciting zero-emission lifting segment”.

Filipov thanked Carlo Forini for his contribution to the company over the years. Valla was set up in 1945 and has been making pick and carry cranes since the 1960s. It was acquired by Manitex in late 2013.
