Canadian manufacturer Hydro Mobile will show its new light- and medium-duty mast climber, the E-Series, at next year’s World of Concrete. Ideal for glazing, EIFS, painting, roofing, restoration, inspection, cleaning, and more, the climbers can achieve a number of configurations, is fully electrical, climbs at 21 fpm and offers a single-mast capacity of 5,800 pounds. The product launched at ConExpo this March.

The company will also exhibit its M-Series, F-Series, and the P-Series mast climbing units. Raxtar personnel will again join Hydro Mobile with information on its passenger and materials hoists. This European hoist manufacturer joined with Hydro Mobile 18 months ago. Hydro Mobile distributes the Raxtar hoist in North America.

In other company news, Hydro Mobile announced earlier this month it severed ties with U.S. distributor TNT. Asked if the manufacturer would use World of Concrete to focus on securing new distributors, Marketing Director Thierry Lachapelle told W&C , “We are always open to distributorship at these shows, but we have a lot of interest already” since the news broke about TNT.

Lachapelle also said Hydro Mobile has focused more heavily on the international market since the U.S. economy has taken a dive.

“We have been pushing hard on the international market,” Lachapelle said, adding the company has found success in such places Middle East and Russia. “Even though the economy is slow, we’re still going strong.”

The company will exhibit its products at Booth S12327 in the South Hall. World of Concrete returns again to Las Vegas on Feb. 3-6.
