Manitex International, Inc.
(NASDAQ:MNTX), a leading provider of engineered lifting solutions including boom
truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, rough terrain forklifts and special mission
oriented vehicles, today announced a distribution agreement with Darwish Bin Ahmed &
Sons (DBA), a well diversified corporation with operations or distribution in 35
countries for distribution of the entirety of Manitex's crane product line
throughout the emirates of Abu Dhabi & Al Ainand and The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Additionally, Manitex International also reached agreement for distribution
throughout Dubai and the Northern Emirates with United Motors & Heavy Equipment
L.L.C., also a part of DBA Group. Both of these dealers are authorized sellers of
German manufactured MAN trucks, which are recognized worldwide leaders in vocational
truck chassis, which will be exclusively used with the Manitex cranes.

Scott Rolston, SVP of Sale and Marketing for Manitex International, Inc. commented,
"Our international market expansion efforts have been successful, as we have thus
far in 2009 realized a 100 percent increase in the business we do outside of North
America compared to all of last year. We have received significant original stocking
orders with this new customer. And with this new agreement, we believe that there is
opportunity for us to double that percentage again in 2010/2011. We look forward to
providing our quality products and technology to the DBA Group and enabling them to
continue to better serve their customers' specialty equipment needs."

Throughout 2009, the joint introductions by Manitex and DBA of five Manitex crane
platforms into the region have been met with outstanding customer reviews and dealer
feedback.  With this formal agreement, it is expected the entire Manitex product
line will become available through the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia in 2010.
