Utility Truck Upfitter, ABM Equipment Now a Manitex Crane Dealer

Manitex International Inc. has added ABM Equipment LLC to its boom-truck distribution network.

Effective immediately, ABM Equipment, headquartered in Hopkins, Minnesota, represents Manitex as a full-service dealer for boom trucks and truck-mounted cranes in Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and the upper peninsula of Michigan.

ABM joins the Manitex network of equipment dealers supporting Manitex products throughout North America and abroad and has placed initial stocking orders for retail distribution.

“Since our founding in 1980, ABM has served the upper Midwest with the best names in the truck mounted equipment business. Our partnership with Manitex ensures we will continue doing so and broadens our ability to provide customized solutions for our customers as well as open doors to new ones. We are excited to work with the Manitex organization and build a great future together.”

– Rob Streeter, ABM Equipment President

Dave McDaniel, Manitex’s midwestern region business manager, added, “ABM Equipment is a perfect fit to represent Manitex in local retail sales and rental markets with medium- to heavy-spec boom trucks and truck-mounted cranes. They have the experience to tailor equipment to suit customers’ needs. We are confident ABM Equipment will increase Manitex’s presence in the midwestern states and foster continued growth in the region. We welcome the new opportunities to come with ABM Equipment and look forward to supporting their success.”

ABM Equipment has expanded in the Minneapolis/St Paul metro area with the acquisition of a 13,000 square foot building in Lakeville, MN that will serve as the Manitex Sales, Service and Parts headquarters. ABM Equipment’s Hopkins location will handle the workload until the dedicated Manitex location is ready in Late Q4 2022 early Q1 2023.

We currently are building our rental fleet and will be adding to it as the market allows, availability of chassis are still very limited and lead times are always a challenge in today’s market. With all of that said we want to make sure that if you have a need for a new boom truck you get your order in as soon as possible, to ensure you get your needs met as timely as possible. Our end goal is to provide the VERY BEST SERVICE available in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.

We want to make sure that we meet your needs without making promises that we cannot keep, and that is always a challenge, even more so in today’s marketplace.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of our services; on behalf of Manitex and ABM we want to thank you for your business.
