The Italian manufacturer, which specialises in spider lifts and has recently started producing mini cranes and material handlers, as well as vertical mast lifts, said its products are good fit with Elpavas, which also rents aerial platforms, window-installation machinery and mini cranes.

Located in the Basque Country, one of the most industrialised regions of the Iberian peninsula, Elpavas has established experience in the sector and has been a member of ANAPAT, the Spanish national association of lifting platform hire companies, for 23 years. 

Esteban Rentería, the founder and general manager of Elpavas and a board member of ANAPAT, said, “During our various meetings with the Platform Basket commercial department, I had the pleasure of visiting the company headquarters and the production plants.
