  • Cranes

    Cranes must work hard to earn their keep. Crane producers are seeking to satisfy demand for increased performance levels - whilst keeping firm control of manufacturing costs.

    Understanding your business

    Cranes are tailored for specific use in construction, mining, manufacturing and shipping. To meet the demands of these challenging environments, cranes must be reliable, durable and stable.
    Increasingly, cranes are expected to work even harder, lifting heavier loads to increased heights, whilst maintaining crane safety. As a key supplier of steel to the crane sector, we recognise these demands and work with our customers to meet them, keeping up to date with key operational and legislative drivers in machine development in the crane market.
