Mr. Raman Joshi,
Manitowoc Cranes India
Towering above the booth will be a Potain MC 175 B, which is one of the several crane models built at Manitowoc’s local factory in Pune. The crane has maximum lifting capacity of 8 t wherein it can lift 1.4 t at its maximum outreach of 60 m.
In addition to showing equipment, Manitowoc will also run live training courses at its stand every day through Manitowoc Crane Care as the company did the same during the last bC India, in 2011, and the courses were hugely successful, selling out completely. Manitowoc hopes similar success at bC India 2013, with classes on tower crane maintenance and operation among those available.
Mr. Joshi says, the timing of the show is really good for the manufacturers and the visitors.
“India will keep moving in the right direction, but this year has unfortunately been a little slower. But we’re optimistic for 2013 and still expect new infrastructure and energy projects to come on-line and to build these ambitious new developments contractors will need to use the latest lifting technology. We’re displaying several cranes with such capacities that can’t be offered by other manufacturers. We’re also pleased to be staging our daily training sessions at our booth. Our Manitowoc Crane Care training courses are going from strength-to-strength and customers recognize the safety and operational benefits available through in-depth knowledge of the cranes they are working with,” says Mr. Joshi.
Visitors to the Manitowoc booth at bC India 2013 will also have a chance to check out a display showing the services available through Manitowoc’s new Contact Center in Pune. The Contact Center gives customers fast phone access to a technician 24/7, to discuss any issues regarding their Manitowoc products.
