Dutch aerial work platform and telehandler rental and sales specialist Riwal is investing nearly EUR100 million (USD112 million) in its fleet during 2019.

About 75% of the investment will be for fleet expansion, supporting Riwal’s international growth strategy. The remaining 25% of the investment is for fleet renewal.

Riwal is acquiring over 2,000 new machines, including scissor lifts, boom lifts, telehandlers and various other niche products. The new equipment will be purchased from brands such as JLG, Genie, Holland Lift and Skyjack for aerial work platforms and Manitou, Magni and JCB for telehandlers.

A considerable part of the fleet plan consists of electric and hybrid machines, reflecting Riwal’s emphasis on sustainability.

Pedro Torres, Riwal chief operating officer, says the fleet investment is essential to Riwal’s growth strategy and its mission of delivering the best customer experience. "We are expanding geographically and opening new depots, and can meet customer needs by supplying a newer and wider range of access equipment. With the addition of more environmentally friendly models, we aim to support our customers in reaching their sustainability goals."
