Japanese crane heavyweight to supply seven units if 145t capacity model and four of 50t model
Crane services giant Aertssen Machinery has ordered 11 Tadano rough terrain cranes for its Middle East operations, choosing the Japanese manufacturer’s GR-1450EX and GR-500EXL models.
A statement from Tadano said: “The people at Aertssen Machinery Services have trusted the reliability and performance of Tadano rough terrain cranes for many years. This is why the Arabia branch of the company in Abu Dhabi recently ordered 11 additional models: Seven GR-1450EX cranes, as well as four GR-500EXL cranes that have already been handed over. The GR-1450EX units will be delivered in the coming year.”
With the purchase, Aertssen is continuing its strategy of standardizing its fleet with Tadano cranes, which Tadano says is in keeping with the old rule “never change a winning team”.
Tony Nuyts, Aertssen business unit manager, Middle East, said: “Tadano GR rough terrain cranes are extremely powerful and heavy-duty machines, and that makes them an indispensable part of our team.”
The “pitch” for the new Tadano GR models will be the sites where Aertssen is carrying out projects for its local energy sector and construction customers. “They will be fulfilling all of our customer’s lifting needs there,” Nuyts added. Aertssen bought all 11 cranes with all options to be prepared for any eventuality.
