Genie A Terex Brand has achieved great success with international awards in 2021 and received 12 industry awards over the course of the year.
The awards came from industry associations, a data analytics firm, and multiple industry publications, which recognized the brand and its products for the popularity, innovation and value they bring to owners and fields of work.
Simon Meester, president, Genie, said: "For 55 years, the Genie team has been committed to providing equipment and solutions that provide the quality and reliability equipment owners need, as well as performance and durability to get the job done, even in the most challenging areas of work. The recognition we received in 2021 confirms that we deliver on our promises, and we are honored to be recognized by so many associations and publications."
The new Genie GS-1432m and GS-1932m micro shears were not introduced until 2021 and received three separate awards from three prestigious global trade publications. In addition, the Genie S-60 J and S-65 HF telescopic boom lifts were selected for recognition by contractor readers from two other worldwide publications.
Genie said his microscissors are a safe alternative to ladders and a more productive alternative to vertical mast lifts. They are also great for jobs that would normally use a standard 4.3m or 5.55m scissor lift, making them versatile all-rounders. The GS-1432m and GS-1932m also feature Genie's AC Electric Drive System (E-Drive), which the manufacturer claims is four times more efficient than traditional hydraulic drive, giving the shear 30% longer life on a single charge .
Genie was also recognized for delivering the highest retained value and lowest cost of ownership by EquipmentWatch, a major source of data, software and insight for the heavy equipment industry. Three of the six product categories — articulated arms, telescopic lifts and scissor lifts - went to Genie, with the Genie Z boom lifts also receiving the lowest total cost of ownership from EquipmentWatch.
Two industry associations also recognized Genie in 2021. The European Rental Association presented Genie with the Technical Committee Award, with the jury noting: "The Technical Committee wanted to highlight Genie's great work in meeting the needs of rental companies in terms of digitization. "
The Texas Rental Association (TRA) has awarded Genie the Associate Member of the Year award, which is presented to TRA members who have made outstanding contributions to the continued success of the Association.
In addition, the Genie SX-135 XC aerial platform received an Intelligent Product Award from the China Machinery Industry Internet Conference (CMIIC) organized by Huicong Publications and China Construction Machinery Industry Association.
A wonderful performance by Genie.
