January 29 - Mexico based equipment rental specialist GMVykon has taken delivery of a 400-tonne capacity Grove GMK6400 all-terrain crane, which will be used to support the maintenance of oil and steel production facilities in the country.

"The GMK6400 provides a series of design features that makes it a great fit for work in the energy sector in Mexico and elsewhere," said Jorge Zanella, Manitowoc's local sales manager for Grove. "The crane can easily move around on job sites and its quick setup and manoeuvrability ensures work goes on at an efficient pace."

The six-axle all-terrain crane, which features 60 m of main boom, was sold to GMVykon by Grove, National Crane and Manitowoc dealer in Mexico, SITSA.

GMVykon's GMK6400 is the second unit to enter the Latin America market - the first was delivered in early 2015 to Transportes y Grúas Auriga, also based in Mexico.
