First big Bronto work platform locally mounted in India21 February, 2020
Mumbai-based logistics and safety equipment rental company Assam Bombay Carriers has taken the delivery of another 70-metre aerial work platform, Bronto Skylift S70XDT.
“We see a strong potential for bigger aerial platforms in India. We bought our first used Bronto in 2016 after a long and in-depth study and have now bought two new S70XDT’s to strengthen our fleet.”Mr. Praveen Sharma, Managing Director at Assam Bombay Carriers
Mr. Sharma describes the market demand in India, where high-reach buildings and factories are an increasingly common sight. The S70XDT aerial platform is ideal for many purposes, such as large industrial plants, refineries, shipyards and general construction work.
“The safety awareness in India has increased a lot in past years. We as well as our customers attach great importance to quality and safety. We chose Bronto Skylift for its excellent product quality, value and quick delivery time,” says Mr. Sharma.
Local chassis and mounting
This second delivery was special in a sense that it was the first new Bronto aerial work platform that was mounted locally onto a local chassis. This was done with the official dealer Brijbasi Hi-Tech, that has a vast experience of Bronto platforms in India on the fire and rescue sector.
“This kind of tasks are possible for us to undertake as we have so strong global sales and service network. We are excited to evolve our relations with Assam Bombay Carriers and also to support the localization of our products in this way,” says Antti Suoniemi, Access Sales Director, Bronto Skylift.
With the support of an experienced technician from Bronto Skylift, Brijbasi made sure the safety and quality of the complete aerial platform will not be compromised.
“Brijbasi is very proud to have the opportunity to mount such big Bronto units at our works in India. It is a big confidence build up for us. Bronto’s support and technical cooperation has been outstanding, enabling us to upgrade our team of engineers and sales.”Udit Agrawal, Brijbasi Hi-Tech
The chassis of this second 70-metre work platform is a 5 axle Bharat Benz. The unit was equipped with an extendable working cage as well as power supply outlets in the cage. The first unit was built on a 4-axle Volvo and delivered readily mounted from Bronto Skylift.
