In 2003 we decided to expand our regular activities and began to develop ways of using fixed tower cranes in the tank construction and petrochemical industry. Our initial projects in this field were very successful and we experienced a growing demand for our cranes and service. We now regularly supply tower cranes to various tank construction sites in the Netherlands and abroad, making this one of our main fields of expertise.

Thanks to the use of flat top cranes, we were able to significantly reduce the hook heights of the various cranes, which enabled us to work more efficiently and against a lower price.
