Haulotte China gathered some industry media journalists and staff from rental association in Beijing to exchange ideas about the industry and Haulotte’s development in China. The main focus was on MEWP applications; Haulotte teams also advised on how to maintain the equipment to increase the machines’ lifespan. Jiangke Construction journalist said «Haulotte is recognized by more and more people both inside/outside the industry in China». «Most of our equipment users are not experts in driving aerial work platforms, so we must consider safety, simplicity, and comfortability in regard to how they use the machine to ensure high productivity. By studying how operators use our machines and maintaining close relationships with our rental partners, we create specifications that meet both application and fleet management expectations» added Harry Wang, General Manager of Haulotte Shanghai.
