GSR Technology, Safety and Innovation to Reach Higher GSR’s Technology, Safety and Innovation to Reach Higher day.

GSR has been encouraging young people to join the access industry through its involvement in its home country’s national Made in Italy day.

The company’s event named Technology, Safety and Innovation to Reach Higher took place at local institute of technology O. Belluzzi - L. Da Vinci in Rimini, as part of its membership of Italy’s national association for the automotive industry (GNMI).

During the event, led by GSR prodcut manager Piero Palmieri and after-sales assistance manager Luca Bartolini, local students were shown a B240PX Compact lift installed on Isuzu truck and given insights into some of the technology and innovation involved.

There was also a presentation illustrating the past and present of the company and how history has influenced the modern product. Students were also invited to ask questions.

“It was an opportunity for young people not only to understand the importance of the company’s Italian know-how, but also to get closer to the sector and arouse an interest and desire to become part of the world of lifting aerial platforms,” said GSR.

The history lesson included how the manufacturer, which originally made wooden ladders became a producer and exporter of aerial platforms, along with safety developments, how the truck mounted aerial platform evolved from a crane with basket.
