Manitowoc to Debut Six Cranes at ConExpo

Manitowoc Cranes will unveil six new cranes at the ConExpo-Con/Agg construction industry tradeshow March 10-14.

In addition, four other cranes that were introduced in 2018 and 2019 will also be on display at the company’s booth, with several making their North American debuts.

The large number of new cranes launching at the tradeshow reflects Manitowoc’s improved product development cycle under The Manitowoc Way. Less than a year ago, Manitowoc launched six cranes at Bauma 2019, and the company is matching that number at ConExpo.

The six new models come from the Manitowoc, Potain, Grove, and National Crane ranges, covering a wide spectrum of lifting industry needs.

Barry Pennypacker, president and CEO of The Manitowoc Company Inc., said the company is delivering on its promise to design and manufacture new products more rapidly, so Manitowoc customers can use the cranes’ increased capabilities and efficiencies to earn more return on their capital investments.

“At CONEXPO 2020, we plan to show how our innovation and velocity efforts under The Manitowoc Way are producing cranes that offer class-leading design and performance,” he said. “Many of our customers provide direct input into the design and functionality of our new cranes, and we know that they will be thrilled to see their contributions come to life.”

Previously announced cranes at the company’s booth will include: the Grove GRT9165 rough-terrain, GMK5250XL-1 all-terrain, TMS500-2 truck-mounted, and GHC140 telescoping crawler cranes; the Potain Hup M 28-22 (with a U.S.-specific transport axle) self-erecting crane; and the National Crane NBT60L boom truck.

Manitowoc will occupy Booth F6144 in the new Festival Grounds near the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.
