Manitou Americas Inc.. West Bend. Wis., has entered into a sponsorship arrangement with Andretti Sports Marketing and the Milwaukee IndyFest, which will be held June 15 - 16, 2012 at the historic Milwaukee Mile racetrack at State Fair Park in West Allis, Wis. Gehl will be known as the “Official Compact Equipment of the Milwaukee IndyFest.”
Manitou Americas provided the use of a Gehl RS10-55 telescopic handler, a Manitou MT 5519 telehandler, and a Manitou MSI 30 semi-industrial forklift for the event. These units will be used by the Milwaukee Mile staff for track maintenance and material handling. Select units will be used on race day to keep the race running smoothly.
"It is exciting to partner with a venue that is as iconic to the community as the Milwaukee Mile," explained Dan Miller, CEO of Manitou Americas "With a long tradition of reliability and innovation dating back to 1859, Gehl equipment will keep the Milwaukee IndyFest on track."
Gehl is also the “Official Construction Equipment” of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Calif., and Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis.
