Weighing in at an impressive 100MT capacity the new GRT8100 Rough Terrain Crane, is now being manufactured by Manitrowoc’s Niella-Tanaro facility in Italy.
Manitowoc has also taken the decision to significantly lower the prices of these cranes into the African market. Contact us here for more information on this incredible crane.
Until now the production of the crane was exclusive to the US, however since 2005, Manitowoc’s Niella-Tanaro factory has successfully manufactured other popular rough-terrain crane models RT530E-2, RT540E and RT550E.
The strategic decision to broaden Italy’s production capabilities is explained by Jens Ennen, senior vice president for mobile cranes in Europe and Africa, “We are confident that our customers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific will benefit greatly from this decision,” he said. “Benefits will include shorter lead times, lower shipping costs and preferential import duties in certain countries that recognize the EUR1 certificate of origin, with the specifications and quality level being as high as the rough-terrain cranes manufactured in Shady Grove.”
