The partnership is confirmed (L-R) Scott Ainsworth of Unic, Regis Morin, of SNM Lift, Jeanine DeCock (Jappes of Unic and Fabien Tuduri of SNM)

In order to kick off the new partnership, SNM Lift has purchased nine new spider cranes, for use as inventory and demonstration machines. It has also teamed up with Dunkirk-based EMM to distribute the Unic spider cranes in the north of France and provide an after sales service in the region as a sub dealer.

SNM is based in Vigneux-de-Bretagne on the north side of Nantes, with a second facility in Belleville sur Saône near Lyons, with mobile service teams in Bordeaux, Paris and Rouen/Le Havre. The company was established in 1981 and was appointed as a Terex crane dealer for the west of France the following year. In 2010 the company was acquired by Vincent Galzin and the current owner and chief executive Régis Morin. Since then, it has grown year on year and now operates through three main sales and service divisions, Cranes, Port handling equipment and SNM Lift – aerial lift sales. The group is the distributor for Terex Rough Terrain and tower cranes, Valla pick & carry cranes, and HSC (Hitachi Sumitomo) crawler cranes, Genie booms, scissor lifts and telehandlers, Oil & Steel spider lifts and truck mounts as well as ELS platforms. Last year Morin bought out Galzin’s share in the business to become the company’s sole owner.

SNM Lift sales manager, Fabien Tuduri said: “Unic has not had much visibility in France, and we were looking for a product that could complement our activities. To support the development of the SNM Lift Unic Range we have recruited two sales representatives in the Île-de-France and Lyon regions. Our technical teams are also being strengthened with four new technicians.”

Unic sales director Mike Heneghan said: “We are pleased to supply SNM Lift with these spider cranes and are thrilled that this new dealership will help us to increase the footprint of Unic in France. In a world that requires more versatile lifting solutions, Unic spider cranes are great pieces of equipment that can fit into more confined spaces.”
