South Wales-based AJ Access Platforms has agreed a partnership to distribute Zoomlion MEWPs in the UK.

AJ will initially offer the full line of the Chinese manufacturer's DC scissor lifts, with working heights ranging from 6.5m to 15.7m. The company will also be responsible for sales, marketing and after sales service. Zoomlion's boom range is likely to be added to the AJ roster in early 2022.

“We are really excited to extend our partnership with AJ Access in UK. Their professional experience in the access industry and profound knowledge of the market will contribute to the further growth of ZOOMLION products and service in the region,” said Jason Liu Jian Cun, general manager at Zoomlion Access.

While Richard Saunders, managing director at AJ Access Platforms added: “As emission rules are tightened, demand for intelligent and robust electric and hybrid MEWPs has never been higher. We are thrilled to represent Zoomlion Acess and showcase their innovative and high-tech construction equipment to our well-established customer base in the UK. Thanks also to Bryan Zhang, European Sales Director, whom it has been a pleasure dealing with throughout the process.”

Zoomlion itself is known for manufacturing high-tech construction equipment, with many other products in concreting, earthmoving, firefighting and agriculture. In 2021, the company was ranked fifth in KHL’s list of the top 50 manufacturers worldwide.
