Taylor is a former Mammoet executive with experience in the petroleum industry. MyCrane ceo and founder Andrei Geikalo said: “We are delighted to welcome Allan at a time of great opportunity for those serving the thriving cranes and construction industry in Asia. APAC is often seen as an exciting region for business development – and with good reason.”

Data and analytics company GlobalData said that the construction industry in Indonesia, for example, is likely to record growth of 7.2 percent in real terms in 2022, surpassing pre-pandemic output levels.

Geikalo continued: “As the world rebuilds following protracted pandemic disruption, countries in APAC are expected to continue their ambitious infrastructure plans in the coming years. MyCrane will be well-placed to serve the local cranes and construction industries when we shortly begin operations in Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. In the meantime, we continue to explore ways to roll out our services in other key Asian markets such as China, Malaysia and Vietnam.”

MyCrane’s platform also offers a suite of other services including support for engineering; a free-to-use selector tool, which enables users to identify the right crane for their lift; and a marketplace where equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts, auxiliaries and industry vacancies can be posted.
