Genie collects accolades in 2023

Genie was recognized by industry associations, government groups, and the media with more than a dozen awards in 2023. This included an award for the company’s sustainability initiatives, as well as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification for its manufacturing facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

Genie was selected by an independent panel of judges for the 2023 International Awards for Powered Access (IAPA) Sustainability Award for implementing innovative solutions, projects, or programs that demonstrate how the company is adapting its business and/or products to environmental issues. One of those achievements was the prestigious LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council, which was awarded to the Terex Genie Mexico facility.

“Across our industry, jobsites and our customers are increasingly looking to manufacturers to help them reduce their environmental impact and reach their sustainability targets,” said Will Westley, Genie’s VP of Sales & Support, who was on hand to accept the IAPA Sustainability Award. “Genie’s product portfolio is already 70% electrified, which helps lower jobsite emissions and reduce noise pollution. But our commitment to sustainability — and to helping our customers achieve their goals – goes deeper. It also is reflected in initiatives like our carbon reduction projects, recycling and energy efficiency activities, and an increasing use of clean energy technology across our global manufacturing and office footprint.”

To that point, of the seven products named to various ‘best of’ lists, several are electric or hybrid-powered.

Genie lithium-ion GS scissor lifts received the Editor’s Choice Award from Rental magazine. Tested for reliability and use in extreme environments, Genie Lithium-Ion batteries have been specifically designed for MEWPs and are certified by the independent certification organization Underwriters Laboratory (UL) against fire, electric shock and explosion.

The hybrid S-60 FE and electric S-60 DC boom lifts were chosen by an independent panel of rental industry professionals for the LLEAP Awards presented by Lift & Access magazine. According to the judges, the boom lifts received Gold for their “amazing technology that provides safety, agility, and self-containing power source.”

In addition, the electric S-60 DC was named ‘Intelligent Product’ during the CMIIC (China Machinery Industry Internet Conference), which aims to recognise enterprises and products that have made outstanding contributions to the industry. The S-60 DC’s versatile performance and lower ownership costs helped it edge out the competition after three stages of online voting.

Likewise, the Z-45J DC articulating boom lift received two awards during the T50 Global Aerial Work Equipment Industry Summit, an annual event focused on MEWP products and technological innovations in the industry. The Z-45J DC was named Best Electric Articulating Boom Lift and received Lowest Cost of Ownership Award.

Other T50 Summit awards went to:

  • SX-135 XC for Best Telescopic Boom Lift;
  • Harry Zhu, VP/GM Commercial, Greater China, for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry; and
  • Genie was named on the Top 5 List for Global Telehandler manufacturer and Top 10 List for Global MEWP manufacturer.

Finally, the GTH-1256 12,000lb/5443kg capacity telehandler and 13ft/4m platform for boom lifts, both introduced to the market in 2023, received awards. The GTH-1256, available in the North American market, was designed to improve durability, lower total cost of ownership and provide maximum productivity on the jobsite. It was recognized by both Equipment Today and Construction Equipment magazines.

The Genie 13ft/4m platform for Genie XC boom lifts in North America and the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) received Innovative Iron award from Compact Equipment magazine. The platform adds more than 60% additional room in the platform, increasing the versatility of rental companies’ boom lift fleets while boosting jobsite efficiency.
