January 21 - Sennebogen and Manitowoc have signed a long-term strategic partnership, which will see Sennebogen produce three telescopic crawler cranes for the US-based crane manufacturer to sell in the North and South American market.

Manitowoc will sell the telescopic crawlers, which will have maximum safe working loads of 55 tonnes, 75 tonnes and 130 tonnes, under its own brand name, with the Grove model names of GHC 55, GHC 75, and GHC 130.

Manitowoc will also offer maintenance, spare parts and financing services.

The equivalent products from the Sennebogen product range - Sennebogen 653, 673 and 6113 - will not be offered in these sales regions. All other Sennebogen products and its existing distribution channels will not be affected by this cooperation, said the manufacturer.
