Access equipment manufacturer Snorkel has appointed industrial construction services corporation Latteps as its official distributor in Latvia.

Henrik Skibsted, Snorkel territory manager for Scandinavia, said, “With Latteps, Snorkel is entering the Latvian market with a very strong and well-established partner. They have already been working closely with our existing Estonian and Finnish distributor and have a thorough understanding and familiarity of the aerial lift market.”

Latteps’ chief business development officer, Arturs Kavinskis, signed the official distributor agreement during a recent visit to Snorkel’s European manufacturing facility in the UK.

Upon signing the contract, Kavinskis said, “We are impressed by Snorkel’s complete product line which enables us to target a wide range of customers and sectors, presenting a substantial business opportunity.”

Latteps has also appointed a new sales manager, dedicated to the sales and market development for Snorkel lifts in Latvia.
