Manitowoc plans bauma unveiling of six cranes and new lifting technologies
Manitowoc will debut six new models from its Grove and Potain lines at bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany. It will also present a technology pavilion that highlights a significant number of customer-focused innovations. While six cranes will be unveiled at the show, several additional models on display will give visitors the chance to see more than 10 new cranes.
The 32nd edition of the world's leading construction equipment trade fair takes place from April 8-14, 2019 and promises to be bigger and better than ever, with two new exhibition halls and an optimized outdoor area. Manitowoc is matching the increased energy of the show with a presentation of products and services to deliver excellent total cost of ownership for customers. The company will be exhibiting at stands FS 1201, FS 1202 and FS 1302/1.
"Since we became a standalone crane company nearly three years ago, we have bolstered our new product pipeline, developing products that our customers want to purchase," said Barry Pennypacker, president and CEO of Manitowoc. "We are confident that the bauma 2019 tradeshow will showcase our ability to incorporate the voice of the customer into our cranes utilizing the principles of The Manitowoc Way."
Several new Potain cranes will be on the company's stand, including those from its topless tower crane and self-erecting Hup ranges. For Grove, the company will introduce new cranes from its all-terrain and rough-terrain lines. Manitowoc will also present new technologies for the industry, with one highlight involving a recent advancement in telematics.
"bauma 2019 will be a great opportunity for us to connect with a large number of Manitowoc customers, which will enable us to gather the information necessary to continue our strategy of adding tremendous value to our customers. The Revolution is Real," concluded Pennypacker.
