The handover of the 2,000th unit falls exactly 20 years after the company developed its first mini crane prototype, also marks the start of Jekko’s relationship with its new French distributor ATN Platforms.
Franceschini said.” France is one of the most important markets for us and we have been operating there for 13 years, at first together with Miltra, then with Fassi France and now with ATN Platforms.
“We would like to thank Mr Roger Boutonnet, ATN Platforms president, and his son Benoit, who first started the co-operation 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”.
