Manitou acquires ATN Platforms

Manitou Group, has purchased the intellectual property of ATN Platforms, a specialist in the design and assembly of aerial work platforms.

Manitou Group has announced that it has acquired in the framework of a judicial recovery procedure before the Commercial Court of Agen (France), all of the intellectual property of ATN Platforms, a French firm that specialises in aerial work platforms, in particular vertical platforms. As a result of this purchase, the group is extending its existing product range in order to accelerate its development in a particularly fast-moving market. The experience acquired by ATN Platforms in this niche underpins the group’s decision.

To accompany this acquisition, Manitou Group is benefiting from the expertise of some dozen ATN Platforms employees, who will continue to be based in Tonneins (Lot-et-Garonne, France), the historic site of ATN Platforms.

Michel Denis, president and CEO of Manitou said, “This is an opportunity for growth for Manitou Group. Our two platform production sites in Candé (Maine-et-Loire) will assemble the vertical platform models that are the result of the expertise of ATN Platforms, in order to offer our customers an even wider choice of aerial work platform solutions.”
