We were delighted to help the largest independent tower crane suppliers in the UK, Falcon Tower
Crane Solutions, when they needed a fleet of Manitou Telehandlers repainting for one of their customers.
Their customer had recently purchased a fleet of brand new Manitou Telehandlers. Manitou offer a wide range of telehandlers for agricultural, construction and industrial companies. Although the telehandlers were brand new and in perfect condition, their customer wanted them re-painted to reflect their corporate brand colours – a vibrant yellow/green colour.
This is a common request from our diverse customer base. Many companies decide to take advantage of the opportunity to build brand awareness by having industrial machinery and equipment re-painted. This results in an attractive, professional finish across the whole fleet, which is instantly recognisable as belonging to your company.
After assessing the requirement, we planned our approach. As the machines were brand new, there was no need to primer them. We first applied our 2k transparent sealer, which allowed us to use our Ultrithane 2 paint straight over the top. The 2k Transparent Sealer, helps to bond subsequent topcoats of paint, and features corrosion inhibiting properties. Our Ultrithane 2 gives a high gloss finish, and is ideal for agricultural equipment and machinery. This paint is available in any colour you desire!
The finish was excellent, with a high gloss level achieved on all of the telehandlers. It took us a very short time to re-paint the entire fleet of over 20 machines, and we’re pleased to say that Falcon were very happy with the results!
