Snorkel UK, the sales and service provider for Snorkel lifts in the UK and Ireland today announces that it has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for RUTHMANN BLUELIFT spider lifts.
BLUELIFT was an Italian spider lift manufacturer that was founded by the Marti family in 2004. In 2016, the growing business became RUTHMANN Italia S.r.l., a division of the RUTHMANN Group who are a well-established German manufacturer of truck-mounted aerial lifts.
The exclusive distributor agreement, that is effective immediately, enables Snorkel UK to sell the full line of RUTHMANN BLUELIFT spider lifts in the UK and Ireland, and Snorkel UK will provide spare parts and technical support for the lifts, through their existing nationwide network of Snorkel UK service engineers.
Andrew Fishburn, Managing Director of Snorkel UK, said, "RUTHMANN BLUELIFT has built an excellent reputation in the UK and is well known for its lightweight, compact and high performance lithium & hybrid machines, which is a key advantage as the UK market increasingly focuses on zero emission equipment. The recent involvement by RUTHMANN only strengthens the business and its offering to customers."
"The opportunity to offer these high-quality lifts alongside our comprehensive Snorkel line will help us to further strengthen our position in this key market, and provide an even greater offering to our existing and prospect customer base."
Gianpiero Marti, Sales Director, of RUTHMANN Italia S.r.l., added, "Snorkel UK has built an impressive sales, service and parts team that delivers truly nationwide coverage. As a manufacturer, we look for distribution partners who are not only able to sell the product, but those who are able to exceed our customer expectations in terms of product support. We believe we have found an excellent partner in Snorkel UK, and look forward to working together in future."
Snorkel UK now offers the complete line of RUTHMANN BLUELIFT spider lifts, which are listed on the Snorkel UK website. All RUTHMANN BLUELIFT products will be sold and serviced by the experienced Snorkel UK team, strategically based across the UK, and backed by the team at the Snorkel UK headquarters in Tyne & Wear. The Snorkel UK team has been factory trained by RUTHMANN Italia S.r.l. to provide the highest levels of customer service and technical support.
