The Manitowoc Company, Inc announced its intent to relocate crawler crane manufacturing operations from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Shady Grove, Pennsylvania, to optimise its manufacturing footprint, reduce costs and expand margins. This initiative will increase operational efficiency and allow the company to reallocate resources to invest in profitable growth. The transition will begin in the third quarter with completion anticipated by the middle of 2017.
