One of Germany’s oldest mobile elevating work platform rental companies, Stützle-Späth, has invested in twenty-two Snorkel scissor lifts.

The first part of the order was delivered in late July, with Managing Director, Torsten Späth receiving thirteen Snorkel S3219E electric scissor lifts, and four Snorkel S3370RT compact rough terrain scissor lifts in custom yellow paint from Ahern Deutschland sales representative, Tommy Härtig. The lifts were delivered in Snorkel’s custom-branded truck directly to Stützle-Späth’s branch location in Schelklingen in the district of Alb-Donau in Baden-Württemberg, which is situated in the south of Germany between Stuttgart and Munich.

The second part of the order includes four Snorkel S3215L lightweight electric scissor lifts, plus the first German order for the new Snorkel S9070RT-HC high capacity rough terrain construction scissor lift, that was previewed at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020.

Established in 1973, the Stützle-Späth company is one of the oldest rental companies in Germany. A family business, they specialize in the rental of high reach access equipment, including insulated and highly insulated and 4-wheel drive equipment. As one of the leading providers of aerial work platforms in Germany, they operate a fleet of more than 300 units, with working heights ranging from 6m to 75m, in a variety of designs and drive options.

Explaining why they chose to place this two-part order with Snorkel, Torsten Späth, said, “We selected Snorkel products based on positive past experiences. The new scissors lifts have well-thought out design features that are ideal for rental applications and are easy to use. This saves time for loading and unloading equipment, as well as reducing the time it takes to familiarize customers on the jobsite.”

“In terms of product quality, we are convinced that Snorkel products are the right choice for our rental fleet, and we are excited to be amongst the first rental companies in Europe to offer the new 23m S9070RT-HC “megadeck” scissor lift.”

Bernhard Kahn, Managing Director at Ahern Deutschland, said, “We would like to thank Stützle-Späth for this order. We are delighted that they are benefiting from some of the rental-focused design features of Snorkel products and look forward to supporting them in future.”
