Time Manufacturing/Versalift announced today that it has acquired Aspen Aerials in a deal that will create significant value by expanding its set of high quality product offerings, and at the same time, leveraging its own growing global market access. Now known as ‘Aspen Aerials, a Time Manufacturing Company,’ the Duluth, MN-based manufacturer will continue to lead the bridge inspection equipment and repair industry, in North America and beyond.
Versalift is launching the first ever hybrid Versalift VTL platform at the Platformers’ Days exhibition in Hohenroda, Germany on September 14 – 15.
Versalift originally introduced the VTL (Versalift Telescopic Light) series earlier this year and mass production of the new series is now up and running on all cylinders. Among other innovations, the VTL feature shaped ultra-high strength steel booms and a vastly improved overturning moment for exceptional structural strength and real-life performance.
Versalift is ramping up its presence in the People’s Republic of China as the company, in a strategic partnership with Qingte Group, once again delivers insulated platforms to the powerful State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) following a nearly 10 year long hiatus.
SGCC is the state-owned electric utility monopoly of China responsible for providing power to more than 1.1 billion people throughout the vast country. The company is currently investing in major infrastructure development projects on the Chinese power grid, and for these projects, Versalift is supplying a number of high voltage insulated platforms for hotline work.
TIME International is proud to have been chosen by Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the sole supplier of a new line of dessert rough terrain pickup mounted platforms.
The articulating telescopic Versalift LAT-135-H offers a working height of up to 13.5 metres with an unrestricted outreach of 6 metres and up to 230 kg bucket capacity. The seven identical platform vehicles are fitted with dual A-frame outriggers, power outlets in the bucket and an intercom system from the bucket to the cabin. The full hydraulic units are low voltage insulated to sustain voltages of up to 1 kV certified per CE EN280.
TIME Versalift have supplied the French telecommunications and infrastructure company Scopelec with an additional 4 van-mounted Versalift platforms as part of a major fleet expansion and renewal process. For this particular constellation, Scopelec is the end user of the platform vehicles, which are leased from an intermediary.
The full order comprises a large number of 12.5 metre Versalift ETL-32-125 platforms with fixed flybooms and 1-man buckets installed on 3.5 t Renault Master vans.
