New models and dealership from Jost

By Euan Youdale30 May 2012

Jost has set up a dealership in Brazil to offer its luffing jib tower cranes to the Latin American market for the first time.

The long-established Germany-based tower crane manufacturer began the partnership with Target Trading this year to introduce its portal-design JTL range.

The compact design of the crane along with the abilty to leave it in cramped inner-city locations standing on four columns, stradling roads and throughways, means it will be ideally suited to cities like Brazil, said Alexander Jost. The manufacturer's JL range will also be available in the country.

Another announcement is the launch of 30 new models to fill the existing range. It will add to the existing nine models. The plan is to now offer many set models, covering all potential demand rather than customising each unit to customer requirements, as has been the case up until now.
