Manitowoc signed a five year strategic agreement with Orlaco, a global camera system specialist, to provide and develop after-market camera systems for Manitowoc cranes including Potain tower cranes, Grove mobile cranes, National Crane boom trucks and Manitowoc crawler cranes. The after-market supply of crane cameras holds great potential for growth. As Bob Hund, Executive Vice President of Manitowoc Crane Care, explained, "Many crane cameras are fitted at the point of manufacture, but there is also demand for after-market cameras to be fitted later on to meet specific customer needs." He added, "Traditionally, cameras are only used on tower cranes but that is changing. Cameras can help any type of crane operator to perform more efficiently and we expect their use to increase in the future." Orlaco, based in the Netherlands, has been Manitowoc's primary supplier of camera technology since 2004.
