Cav. Marco Marconi, founder of JM Enterprise SRL said: “With the creation of JM, we wanted to consolidate the legacy of 50 years design and construction of more than 6000 vehicles, by centralizing this knowledge under a young management team of enthusiast professionals. After some challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, JM is now ready to further expand its activity and to become a front-runner in its field of activity, with the valued support of our new industrial partner UPLIFT.”

Pieter Van Espen, managing director of UPLIFT commented: “We are very excited to enter into the shareholding of JM. UPLIFT has been reviewing the market of aviation fuelling equipment manufacturers for more than a year with the aim to identify partners that fit into UPLIFT’s main objective to provide solutions to accelerate the transition towards sustainable aviation. We are very happy that the partnership dialogue with JM evolved into taking up an active stake in the company. With JM, we found a very committed, creative and experienced team that rightly focusses on providing sustainable solutions.”

Alexandru Sturza, chairman & CEO of JM Enterprise SRL said: “With the arrival of UPLIFT, JM gains access to a wider industry network, deeper understanding of our products from the operator’s perspective, as well as the expertise to turn a family business into a larger international corporation.
