Speaking of the VertiTek agreement signed  at ConExpo in Las Vegas, US, earlier this year, Rodrigo Carrasco Pérez, general manager, commented. “In our region, the demand for multifunctional track-drive access platforms is rising steadily. To tap into this ever-growing market, it is important to have the right business partners and products.”

The company is already a long standing customer of parent group Ruthmann, having invested in a Steiger T 470 truck mount.

Uwe Strotmann, Ruthmann general sales manager, added, “We are very pleased that our valued Chilean customer has now also decided to become a Bluelift dealer. VertiTek is a firmly established player in the South American work platform sector. The company has exceptional know-how and a well developed network across the country. Together, we will establish new customer groups and increase our market share in that corner of the world.” Based in Lampa-Santiago, the company also represents Almac and Dinolift products.
