Jekko and the 2000th crane: many happy returns!
In 2020, a difficult year under many aspects, Jekko has reached a double milestone: at JDL exhibition in France the company delivered to French dealer ATN Platforms its 2000th crane, exactly 20 years after its first mini crane prototype.
It has been 20 years since Jekko developed the first model of a mini crane in 2000. From that moment on, the Treviso-based company has always been betting and investing in new models and new lifting solutions, supported and rewarded by a growing interest coming from the market, gaining an important place among the most relevant mini crane producers worldwide.
It is worth to mention that the 2000th unit is new SPX650 model, the latest machine launched last July during a live streaming presentation. This mini crane embodies cutting-edge technical solutions and innovations and has already drawn the attention of the experts, promising to become a flagship model of Jekko range.
The 2000th crane was delivered to ATN Platforms, which recently took the place of Fassi France and is new Jekko dealer in the French market. JDL exhibition was therefore the perfect setting for a symbolic delivery of the machine, sealing a new relationship which has already started in the best way possible.
“We are so glad of having reached this important milestone and delivering our 2000th crane to our French distributor ATN Platforms makes us very proud – comments Mr. Alberto Franceschini, Jekko Export Manager – 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 cooperation 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”.
