Airo supports Italy expansion

Despite the difficult economy in Italy, Airo is reporting new ventures in the country, including the expansion of one of its dealers.
Top Car, a distributor for the Italian manufacturer, has opened a new rental depot in the country.
The facility is based in Casnate con Bernate, a few kilometres from Como and adds to Top Car's headquarters in Lecco. It will offer forklifts, batteries and aerial platforms, including articulated, truck mounted and scissors.
