Manitou acquires ATN Platforms to boost produce range


ATN Platforms is a French firm that specialises in aerial work platforms, in particular vertical platforms

Manitou Group has announced the purchase of the intellectual property of ATN Platforms, a specialist in the design and assembly of aerial work platforms.

According to the manufacturer of forklifts, telehandlers and other heavy equipment, the purchase will allow the group to extend its existing product range and accelerate the development of the company.

In June 2022, AFI said it was growing its material handling brand, AFI Lifting, with the addition of Manitou telehandlers.

ATN Platforms is a French firm that specialises in aerial work platforms, in particular vertical platforms. Manitou Group says the acquisition allows the company to benefit from the expertise of ATN Platforms employees, who will continue to be based in Tonneins, France, the historic site of the company.

In a statement Michel Denis, President and CEO of Manitou Group said: “This is an opportunity for growth for Manitou Group. Our two platform production sites in Candé (Maine-et-Loire) will assemble the vertical platform models that are the result of the expertise of ATN Platforms, in order to offer our customers an even wider choice of aerial work platform solutions.”

In August, Mycrane said it added new crane types for the short-term rental market to its digital rental platform and, later in the month, Johnson Arabia said it had completed the installation and erection work for a date processing complex in Oman.
