Great satisfaction for Jekko at the 8th edition of GIS
GIS, the Italian Lifting Day, has taken place at the Piacenza exposition area from the 7th to the 9th of October 2021. Jekko, present with its two stands throughout the entire exhibition, has registered an incredible number of visitors.
On Friday night, the ILTA, Italian Lifting and Transportation Awards, opened the night-time event of the exposition, the GIS by Night. During this exclusive event, Jekko has been recognized as a trailblazer company once more, receiving the Product Innovation Award for its SPX650. Launched in July 2020, this telescopic spider crane on tracks possesses great versatility, distinguished by technological features that make this machine unique in its category. The electrical motor, the adaptive stabilization system and its lifting capacity, when fully extended with the jib, compared to its compact dimensions, are some of the features that identify SPX 650.
During the same event, the entrepreneur Pierluigi Tonon, president of the company Ormet and partner of Jekko, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
For SPX650, the Product Innovation Award is the second prize this year, having received the award as Best Mini-crane on Trucks of the Year at the Movicarga Awards 2021. On this occasion, also JF545, Jekko’s 15,5-ton articulated crawler crane, has received the prize for the best manoeuvre of the year.
