IPAF appoints a new country representative for Spain


A new representative to assist the International Powered Access Federation’s (IPAF) membership in Spain has been appointed, with Ainara Greño taking up the post as Spain Regional Manager with immediate effect.  

Based in Bilbao, Ainara knows the industry well, having previously worked as a distributor in Spain for both Niftylift and CTE MEWP manufacturers in a career spanning 20 years.  

Romina Vanzi, IPAF’s Head of Regional Development, says: “Spain is a very important country for IPAF, with one of Europe’s largest MEWP rental fleets and many machines being used in the construction, manufacturing, technical and processing industries and associated supply chains.  

“IPAF is very pleased to be able to announce the appointment of someone so experienced and well known in our industry to this vital role. We look forward to taking forward IPAF’s agenda together in Spain and we’re excited to welcome Ainara aboard.”  

Ainara says: “I am very pleased to join IPAF and I look forward to getting started in this new role. IPAF is an organisation well known to me and across the powered access sector in Spain, and with training and membership numbers at an all-time high, it is an exciting time to join the organisation.  

“I have already been made to feel very welcome by my new colleagues during a short induction period, and I am keen to start work supporting IPAF’s Spanish members and helping to progress key objectives in Spain.”
