Valla General Manager Appointment

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Paolo Balugani as General Manager of Manitex Valla.  Paolo will report to me and work in close synergy with the global leadership team.  Our aim is to grow the Valla product line to its full potential. 

This is an exciting change that fits perfectly with the initiatives we are taking to enhance collaboration, growth and efficiency improvements between our Italian Product Divisions and Manitex International Operations. 

I am certain that Paolo, with his prestigious professional and entrepreneurial background which has seen him acquire a leading role in the industrial lifting sector, will be able to successfully guide Valla along a virtuous path of renewal capable of leading the company to the definitive relaunch on the market where one's historic and prestigious brand must regain the position it deserves.

Paolo's appointment reinforces our optimism and our confidence in our future and aligns with our recently released and presented strategy; “Elevate Excellence”.

Please join me in welcoming Paolo to our Team. 

Finally, let me congratulate Paolo for the ambitious challenge he is about to undertake and I take this opportunity to reiterate my full and constant support for him, for Valla and for all our Operations in Italy.

Giovanni Tacconi
Vice President Manitex International
