FRACO launches new work platform
Quebec equipment supplier targets new niche in the construction market
Following the unveiling of its new corporate identity, Fraco has introduced a brand-new rack and pinion work platform. The FMC-3 has been developed to meet the repeated demands of contractors of the construction industry who often must use heavy equipment poorly adapted to the types of work to be performed. "The FMC-3 platform is for building contractors who want flexible work equipment with medium load capacity. It has been designed so that it can be mobilized quickly with a minimum of resources," confirms Jacques Lainé, Marketing director at Fraco. "In addition to offering a maximum payload of 1100 kg, the FMC-3 allows a lift of 7,5 m per minute."
The FMC-3 was designed by Fraco technical team in collaboration with its European partners who have been using this type of platform for several years. "We took inspiration from some of the work platforms already available in Europe and developed a version that also meets North American requirements and specifications." says Anthony Grégoire, Director of Innovation at Fraco. "From the start, we wanted to offer users a product that meets Fraco standards and quality. The FMC-3 will therefore be proposed with an electric motor or gasoline engine. It also has floor extensions integrated into the extensions that enlarge the work surface; planks are not necessary." According to Jacques Lainé, the FMC-3 platform has something to surprise Fraco distributors, as well as their own customers. It should be available soon from the partners of the company.
