Fascan Enters Exclusive Agreement to Distribute Jekko Minicranes
Fascan Intl., Baltimore, Md., has entered into an exclusive agreement with Ormet SpA of Italy to supply Jekko Minicranes to the United States market through a new company, Jekko USA. The new company, which will be managed as a partner company to Fascan Intl., will assume the former sales and service functions of Minnesota-based C4 Cranes, which will no longer carry the line.
Jekko minicranes are targeted at applications including glass handling and installation, steel erection, HVAC, infrastructure repair, utility servicing, and precast concrete installation. The compact crawler cranes are designed to provide lifting and maneuvering capabilities in confined work areas. The Jekko crane’s design allows for a higher load capacity and lighter boom than similar-sized cranes.
Jekko’s integrated CAN-BUS microprocessor system gives operators precision control for enhanced safety. Each crane is equipped with retractable, stabilizing outriggers and is ideal for operating in interior project spaces. These machines give operators lifting capacities ranging from 1.2 to 4.0 tons.
