Italian manufacturer of spider and pick & carry cranes Jekko has appointed JT Cranes as its official dealer in UK. The new dealership has been signed between Russ Taylor, JT Cranes managing director and Alberto Franceschini, Jekko sales manager.

As part of the strategy to break into the UK market there will be a focus on the higher capacity mini cranes, including the SPX1275, SPX1040 and SPX527 and the new large crawler crane SPK60, the company said. Taylor will oversee the distribution of Jekko mini cranes to the entire UK market from the JT Cranes offices in Bedford.

The JT Cranes team will join Jekko on the stand at Bauma 2016 in Munich (Hall FS – Stand 903/6), where the complete Jekko range will be exhibited together with the newest crawler crane SPK60 and mini pickers MPK50 and MPK25.

A new SPX1275 will be unveiled at the next Vertikal Days exhibition in the UK in June 2016.
