ABM has acquired 17 Manitex machines in the past year and has a goal to increase its rental fleet, while offering unmatched responsiveness, service, and technical support to its customers. While some manufacturers are tempted to build direct channels to market, Manitex is seeking to strengthen the relationship it has with our dealer network,” said Michael Coffey, CEO Manitex International. “Our dealer partners are integral to the success of Manitex and the mutual customers that rely on our equipment solutions,” continued Coffey.

“ABM has built an extremely talented team.” Said Dave McDaniel, Regional Sales Manager. “We share a common focus on the customer and their level of service responsiveness is unmatched,” continued McDaniel.

“We are excited to introduce these Manitex cranes to our rental fleet. Their superior performance and versatility make them an invaluable addition, enabling us to better serve our customers’ demands.”
