Manitowoc and its partners — Foucherans, France-based OBrent Grue for self-erecting cranes and Belley, France-based Valente Grue Assistance — worked together to exhibit a wide range of cranes and technologies at Journées du Levage 2017 (JDL 2017) in Beaune, France.
Visitors to the companies’ booths had the opportunity to see and learn more about several new Grove and Potain cranes. The new 75 High Performance Lifting (HPL) winch technology, which will soon come standard on Potain MDT 319 tower cranes, was also featured at the show, as well as Manitowoc’s new MAXbase outrigger technology.
JDL 2017 brought 300 of the region’s leading equipment manufacturers together from September 20 – 22 to display cutting-edge machines and technology. Attendees to the trade show included companies from the construction, energy, port handling and foresting industries, among many more.
Andreas Cremer, Manitowoc’s global product director for all-terrain cranes, said Manitowoc’s booth at the show saw great interest and it provided the company an excellent chance to converse with visitors about their specific lifting needs.
“JDL 2017 was a great opportunity to showcase our velocity and innovation to some of the biggest decision-makers in the European construction market, and to also hear first-hand exactly what they need to improve their own operations,” he said.
