MEC Aerial Work Platforms is celebrating 40 years as a manufacturer of aerial work platforms.

Started in Wisconsin as MEC (Mayville Equipment Corp.), the AWP division was acquired by C-MEC (California Manufacturing & Engineering Corp), which moved the operation to California in 2002. 

With a legacy of quality slab scissors, the MEC portfolio was broadened with larger, RT scissor product, boom lifts, and specialty products. Ever since, MEC has focused on providing customers with "a better solution."

To honor the company's legacy and the brand name it has built over the last 40 years, MEC is launching its new family of slab scissors.

The new DC-drive slab scissor line offers six models with platform heights from the 13-ft. micro slab 1330SE to the 45-ft. compact 4555SE.

Other models in the family include the compact 40-ft. 4046SE, and the series of 19-ft., 26-ft., and 33-ft., scissors with standard integrated material sheet trays. 

All models also feature direct electric travel drive that delivers extended duty cycles and  faster drive speeds while also virtually eliminating hydraulic leaks.

“The opportunity to grow our business with a new slab product range was clear,” says David White, president. “In line with our strategy, we knew that we had to have innovative products that would make a compelling case for customers and provide better value in the market."

White added: "I think we have hit those marks very well with features like the material tray, the benefits of direct electric drive, and the creation of a new market class with the 4555SE."

MEC Aerial Work Platforms' other products include rough terrain booms with patented and award-winning design features.
