Added Value for Customers: The 2013 Crane Conference

On February 21st  and 22nd  2013 Paterson Simons held a two-day crane and forklift customer/manufacturer conference at the Raybow Hotel in Takoradi, Ghana. This was the company’s third such crane conference following from the successful inaugural event in 2011 and a more recent Port Crane Services conference in November 2012.  Our ethos of providing a lifetime of crane and forklift support to customers is further defined by our conferences, which are now a firm bi-annual event in our customer’s calendar .

Over 70 of our customers attended including owners, management and supervisors from the mining, oil & gas, ports, and logistics sectors on Ghana. Speakers included members of the Paterson Simons management, CIT (our safety certification company), and engineers from Manitowoc, Manitou, Lifting Gear UK and Konecranes Industrial. The highlight of the event was an interactive experience where guests could see first-hand the technology presented at the conference. Guest experts guided attendees around two Grove cranes, demonstrating their set up and operation. A Grove RT880E Rough Terrain crane and GMK5130-2 All Terrain crane where generously provided by Mobicrane especially for the occasion.
