Italian mini crane manufacturer Jekko has delivered its 2,000th crane.

The company handed over the landmark unit – a new SPX650 mini crane – to its new dealer ATN Platforms at the JDL specialized equipment exhibition, in France.

Alberto Franceschini, Jekko export manager, said, “We are so glad of having reached this important milestone and delivering our 2,000th crane to our French distributor ATN Platforms makes us very proud.”

Described by Jekko as embodying “cutting-edge” innovations, the manufacturer introduced the SPX650 mini crane via a livestreamed event in July 2020. With a lifting capacity of 5 tonnes, a new stabilisation system and three possible configurations, the company said the SPX650 is likely to become one its flagship products.

The handover of the 2,000th unit, which falls exactly 20 years after the company developed its first mini crane prototype, also marks the start of Jekko’s relationship with its new French distributor ATN.

Franceschini said, “France is one of the most important markets for us and we have been operating there for 13 years, at first together with Miltra, then with Fassi France and now with ATN Platforms.

“We would like to thank Mr. Roger Boutonnet, ATN Platforms president, and his son Benoit, who first started the co-operation between Miltra and Jekko in 2007, and also Mr. Gilles Cheval and Mr. Frédéric Leclerc. Without their precious support we wouldn’t be where we are today”.
