During the 5-month period, Kenan Aydın, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Fatih Vinç, who carried out this investment and delivered its products; exchange rates, economic hardship and reasons such as the election stopped everyone at a time when announced. Kenan Aydın stated that the demand for large boom diesel engines will increase in the coming period and we talked about the new machines and the course in the sector:
Could you tell us about your new investments?
Our new machine purchases for 5 months time our efforts have resulted in our country has stopped and everyone’s investments, we continued our investment in our sector and we have confidence in our work. We’ve done more than we should. Purchases with our domestic manufacturers scissor lift platforms by categorizing itself from ELS, the big boom and diesel engines have used since Haulotte.
What are the reasons for choosing ELS Lift for your cordless platform investment?
ELS Lift has a production experience of about 10 years. As a domestic manufacturer, the company expanded its production line and became more competitive as it increased its volume. They are able to send machines all over the world and compete with all brands. In February of this year, we received a large amount of 110 units in the following 20 investments. 30 pieces of 8m cordless scissor lift, 30 pieces of 10m cordless scissors, 40 pieces of 12m cordless scissor lift and 15 pieces of cordless scissor lifts preferred 15m.
Do you support domestic production?
As Platformder, which we both belong to Fatih Vinc, we are pleased with the growth of domestic producers and we look positively. machine park and the use of machinery in Turkey, does not move to a European standards. Very electronic and extreme precision machines can be appropriate in Turkey. I can say that the machines used in Europe and the world are more demanding in our market. We, the manufacturer of the machines they offer to the market in Turkey, we especially try to take. Since we provide rental services, we advise you to place machines with less energy and less energy. We especially want to support domestic production. We follow new machines which are new and unknown in the market and we offer a report to the companies when we try. In this report, we write about what needs to be done, deficiencies and desires.
What would you say about your new Haulotte investment from Acarlar Makine?
We bought 82 machines in total. Among these, 24 to 12 m diesel scissor, 10 18 m diesel scissor, 8 18 m diesel articulated, 5 16 m diesel articulated, 10 26 m diesel articulated, 2 to 41 m diesel articulated 15 meters cordless articulated and 12 meter battery powered articulated models. 50% of our new machines can be exchanged with the machines we have already rented.
Is the industry satisfied with Haulotte’s diesel performance?
Haulotte has been making significant investments especially in the last 5 years. A brand that is much more powerful and competitive than anywhere in the world. They are developing their own high security systems. In line with the requests of the leasing companies and customers, they made improvements to the machine more easily and made improvements. We are starting to see the models of the brand coming to market recently.
Will the demand for diesel machines increase?
In the years when many companies invested in diesel, we made our investments in this direction by thinking that there is an open space on the cordless platforms. Afterwards, the number of companies making instant investments increased. Our cordless investments reached saturation. Therefore, we have accelerated the purchase of diesel machinery in order to meet the new needs of the country in the new season in order to close our deficiencies in the diesel field.
Diesel scissor and boom entered to evolve large diesel articulated boom conditions in Turkey and we believe its construction in these machines will begin to find more space. In the coming period, there will be 2-3 diesel boom and diesel scissor platforms in a 1000 sqm construction site. In our industry, where battery powered scissor lifts are used extensively, longer boom machines have become more and more prominent. We are facing the demands of diesel machinery, which we cannot even hire from outside. Om There will be 2-3 diesel booms and diesel scissor lifts even at a construction site of 1000 square meters “
How long do you give life to bulk diesel equipment?
In our fleet, we are trying to set up our machinery park by keeping our age young and not exceeding 3.5-4. However, large machines with diesel booms can last longer. Life as 15 years we can say. Older machines than new ones.
