Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) announces today that it marked a production milestone in September as the 1,000th Genie Z-33/18 articulating boom rolled off the production line at its Umbertide facility in Perugia, Italy.
The facility is where Genie telehandlers and boom lifts are made in Europe.
“This 1,000th unit of the Genie Z-33/18 boom lift notably marks a milestone in terms of serving our customers in Europe, as we continue to invest in developing Umbertide as a world-class design, engineering and manufacturing centre,” says Joe George, VP & Managing Director, Terex AWP EMEAR.
Building on significant investments and the progressive introduction of an increasing number of production lines dedicated to the Genie brand in Italy over the past three years, the company recently appointed Francesco Aiello to the position of Senior Director Terex AWP for the Umbertide plant, to continue the successful development of its plant in Italy.
After working as Quality Manager and auditor for ISO 9001, Aiello first joined Terex in 2000 where he has held positions of increasing responsibility over the past eight years. From Service Manager, Aiello rose through to become Director of Operations in Umbertide and later the Director of Supply Chain for Terex AWP.
“Francesco has an extensive manufacturing background which he has already demonstrated with the successful integration of our S-65 boom and Z-62 boom production lines, which are the most recent Genie boom lift models to be manufactured in Umbertide,” says George.
“We have every confidence in his ability to lead our team as he continues to directly oversee the next phase of the improvement and expansion of our Umbertide factory.”
