Access equipment provider and 2018 LLEAP Award winner GMG Inc. appointed a director of global operations and a European product support manager.

Craig Braun was named as the director of global operations. Braun brings his experience in manufacturing, operations, and logistics to join the GMG team, most recently serving as the managing director at a global manufacturing company.

Braun and his team will be responsible for all aspects related to manufacturing of existing and new GMG models, quality control, testing and certification, on-time delivery, and more.


The Ryze SBL (Scissor and Boom Lift) Simulator is intended to supplement actual equipment training by offering a safe, blended learning solution. The virtual reality (VR) software consists of 33 training scenarios, including three 20-minute practical evaluations that meet industry requirements for boom lifts, slab lifts, and diesel rough-terrain scissor lifts. The simulator allows the operator to attempt IPAF and ANSI training requirements in a dynamic environment without risk of physical harm.

The SRK-11 allows the self-rescue of any worker at height, regardless of industry. Certified for up to 600 feet, the kit uses high heat aramid fiber rope with a tensile strength exceeding 6,700 lbs. 

Elevate, Skyjack’s off-highway telematics solution, is specifically designed for rental fleets. The system departs from traditional telematics products with origins in the transportation industry using the data that research has shown rental customers care about most to produce actionable insights and measurable benefits. Elevate is designed to be a full connected fleet solution that provides rental customers with immediate results without complex subscription fees or annual service charges.

GMG's I-Power integrates all the safety components on electric slab scissors into one system to communicate with each other and interpret the operator’s actions in order to enhance performance and safety. The abilities of GMG's I-Power system reduce maintenance needs by preventing over-amping of electrical components and extending battery life. This allows GMG to provide a two-year warranty for batteries on machines with I-Power.

The three-axle Demag AC 45 City redefines compactness in the 50-ton lifting capacity class with a total length of 28’6”, a width of 8’4”, and an overall height of 10’8”. Its height can be reduced to less than 9 ft., and the base section of its fully hydraulic main boom is also particularly compact with its length of 25’7”.

The Jekko SPK 60 is a versatile telescoping crawler crane that can be driven or operated via radio remote with a maximum lifting capacity of more than 6.5 tons and reach of nearly 89 ft. with extensions. 

Manitou’s MRT 2470 Privilege Plus rotating telehandler can lift 15,400 lbs. to 80’4” and reach 67’3” forward. It offers three operating modes (telehandler, winch, and platform) and numerous attachments. Its boom and 360° rotation allow operators to swing and place materials instead of pick, drive, and place them.

The Magni RTH 8.25 SH offers the heaviest maximum lifting capacity for a rotating telehandler at 17,600 lbs. and a maximum lifting height of 81 ft. With its attachments, it can serve as several machines in one, including a telescopic forklift, rough-terrain crane, access platform and more. The RTH 8.25 SH can lift 11,600 lbs. at maximum height and 2,600 lbs. at a maximum forward reach of 69 ft. 

The HA61 LE PRO is the first model in Haulotte’s Pulseo line, which debuted at Intermat in April. Due to its quiet electric design, the HA61 LE PRO can operate in both indoor and outdoor applications, and it’s ideal for low-emission and low-noise environments. The Pulseo line also incorporates Haulotte’s latest safety innovations, including the Activ Shield Bar 2.0, the Activ Lighting System, and the Activ Energy Management System.
