According to IPAWorld.com, MEC Aerial Work Platforms, Kerman, Calif., has established a new European distribution center in De Lier, the Netherlands.
Jim Tolle, vice president strategic development international markets, is overseeing the new location. It will serve as a warehouse for new machines and replacement parts, house a workshop to carry out pre-delivery inspections, and handle all service-related matters.
Tolle said, “This facility is the first step in our planned expansion for the European market. In early 2013, we plan to open a similar operation in the UK.”
