Trico Lift, a full-service aerial work platform company has a new location in Manassas, Va. The new Trico Lift branch is located on Chatsworth Drive in Manassas.

According to company officials, the new location is strategically located for customers served in the greater North Virginia areas. Trico Lift previously managed this region’s operations from a location in Gainesville, Va., which it occupied for more than eight years.

Spearheading the new North Virginia operation is Peter Mangelli, general manager of the Manassas facility. Mangelli has more than 15 years of equipment rental and construction business experience having worked in management, sales and marketing.

“We’re very excited to have a new and larger Trico Lift location to elevate our prominence in the North Virginia business community,” Mangelli said. “ This new North Virginia branch location will enable us to offer our full line of services to our customers here and help us to have a stronger business presence in the region’s construction and industrial markets.”

All employees from the company’s former Gainesville operation are now in Manassas including Service Manager Jimmy Graves, of Front Royal. Graves now manages all services and parts operations for the branch.

Its equipment fleet is made up primarily of boom lifts, scissor lifts and rough terrain forklifts and has been ranked the 14th largest in North America and among the top 50 access fleets in the world.
