Italian truck and trailer mounted lift manufacturer Co.Me.T has formally confirmed the appointment of its new UK distributor – Comet UK.

Comet UK will operate from a brand new facility near Malton in North Yorkshire. It is a new division of Ryetec Industrial Equipment, an agricultural, forestry and horticultural equipment distributor that dates back to 1992.

The new business will initially focus on the Comet X lift range, with working heights if 12 and 14 metres and up to 6.5 metres of outreach, mounted on trailers, light vehicles, and a 4×4 buggy becoming the Xiraffe.

The company is planning a demonstration/roadshow tour starting later this month and plans to follow up with demonstrations of larger Comet truck and van mounted lifts in the new year, including some fully insulated models. Next year will also see the launch of a new Comet spider lift range which will be of particular interest to its forestry customers.

Chief executive and co-owner Mark Harrison said: “we are pleased to now offer the full range of Comet platforms and product support from our base here in Yorkshire. Comet manufactures an incredible range of machines and different options, with an emphasis on high build quality and simple control systems for maximum reliability and low running costs, an ideal combination for the hire and commercial users in the UK”.
