Time Manufacturing/Versalift has acquired US bridge inspection equipment manufacturer Aspen Aerials.
Aspen is based in Duluth, Minnesota, and has manufactured underbridge inspection platforms for more than 30 years. The Aspen Aerials product line includes six models, including units with up to four independently controlled articulating boom elements which can be operated from multiple control panels. The company has introduced a new stability management technology, which it says enables its truck mounted bridge inspection equipment to operate safely without the need to deploy outriggers. The company will continue to operate as Aspen Aerials – with the addition of 'A Time Manufacturing Company' to its logo.
Time Manufacturing/Versalift chief executive Curt Howell said: “We are delighted to welcome Aspen Aerials, a market leading manufacturer in the bridge inspection space, to the Versalift family. With this acquisition, we extend our reach into an important and growing industry, and continue to expand our offering of high-quality, safe and reliable equipment.”
