Manitex International has outlined the details of an order for Valla electric cranes valued at $2.5m by Collè Rental & Sales, of Sittard, Netherlands.

The new order represents the largest single order in Valla’s 75-year history. The initial order is for more than 30 cranes to join Colle`’s rental fleet and includes a number of the company’s electric, zero-emissions models, the Valla V80R, V110R, V36 R and V200R.

“The Valla crane platform offers an exceptional rental product with a full range of industrial cranes from 2 to 90t, in electric, diesel, hybrid, wheeled and tracked, with fixed or swing boom configurations.” said Steve Filipov, CEO of Manitex International.

“The zero-emissions feature is becoming increasingly important in the global marketplace for industrial equipment, and we are very glad to see customers taking notice of our unique Manitex Valla offerings. We believe Manitex Valla has the potential to be a high growth area for us going forward, and we look forward to a long-term relationship with Colle`.”

The company will now be the general importer for Valla cranes in the Benelux region.

"We believe that market demand for industrial electric pick & carry cranes will remain strong in the years to come, and our partnership with Manitex Valla will enable us to provide a product line that is well-known throughout our customer base as a name of quality and reliability in the zero-emission crane market,” said Frits Colle`, general manager, of Colle` Rental and Sales B.V.
