Manitowoc Cranes had a strong showing at the JDL Med 2016, featuring a range of Grove cranes and the Potain Hup 32-27. The event was held October 12-14 in Marseille, France, and saw more than 15,000 visitors to view the latest advancements from across the lifting, handling, elevation, transportation and packaging industries.
With a heavy emphasis on cranes that are ideal for the rental industry, particularly in improving return on investment for rental companies, Manitowoc displayed several Grove crane models and one Potain crane that are easy to transport to the job site and provide superior lifting capacities from economical footprints.
Philippe Dumas, sales director for France and Dom-Tom for mobile cranes, said the JDL Med exhibition was a great success, and in keeping with The Manitowoc Way, gave the company a great opportunity to connect directly with customers and hear about their specific needs, especially for those in the rental market.
“At Manitowoc we understand that margins can be tight in the rental market, and often, that means saving money through features that improve efficiency and reduce costs,” he explained. “The cranes we displayed at JDL Med feature technical breakthroughs and best-in-class capabilities, and for most customers, that means an improved return on investment.”
