Snorkel UK is exclusive BLUELIFT distributor for UK & Ireland

RUTHMANN Italia S.r.l. has appointed Snorkel UK, the sales and service provider for Snorkel lifts in the UK and Ireland as the exclusive distributor for BLUELIFT spider Lifts.

The exclusive distributor agreement, that is effective immediately, enables Snorkel UK to sell the full line of RUTHMANNBLUELIFT spider lifts in the UK and Ireland, and Snorkel UK will provide spare parts and technical support for the lifts, through their existing nationwide network of Snorkel UK service engineers.

Andrew Fishburn, Managing Director of Snorkel UK, said, “RUTHMANNBLUELIFT has built an excellent reputation in the UK and is well known for its lightweight, compact and high performance lithium & hybrid machines, which is a key advantage as the UK market increasingly focuses on zero emission equipment. The recent involvement by RUTHMANN only strengthens the business and its offering to customers.”
