Avant Tecno USA, Arlington Heights, Illinois, and Leguan Lifts, Ylöjärvi, Finland, have formally announced their partnership and distribution plans for the North American market. Beginning in October 2020, Avant Tecno USA and select dealers in its extensive network will begin promoting, selling and servicing the Leguan 190 spider lifts designed for tree care, heavy duty professional and rental use.

According to Jukka Kytömäki, president of Avant Tecno USA, the two companies will benefit from synergies related to customers, product portfolio and extensive industry expertise.

“Similar to the Avant product line, Leguan Lifts were carefully designed paying meticulous attention to durability, safety and user friendliness,” says Kytömäki. “The Leguan 190 access platform specifically has unbeatable features including automatic leveling with a single push of a button, high platform capacity over the entire working area, all-terrain capabilities and sturdy boom design.”

Jori Mylläri, export manager of Leguan Lifts, is both excited and optimistic about introducing Leguan Lifts to the North American market.

“Avant Tecno USA’s values stand for commitment, knowledge and experience, and they offer great customer service to all of their customers. Their professional sales and service staff understand the North American customers’ needs and together with them we are able to offer the leading spider lift solutions to the market,” says Mylläri.

Avant Tecno USA has spent the past few months preparing its sales, service and operations teams to offer Leguan local sales, marketing and after sales service for various industries and customer segments, primarily those in the tree care and rental sectors. The team at Leguan Lifts factory recently hosted a 3-day virtual sales and service training for Avant Tecno USA in September 2020 in preparation to begin the promotion and sales of Leguan Lifts’ products in United States and Canada.

“Leguan Lifts already has large market share in many of the European and Australian markets, and we are excited to introduce these high-quality machines to our product portfolio,” says Kytömäki.
