Manitowoc Withdraws from ConExpo
June 29, 2022 -- The Manitowoc Company Inc., a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, has withdrawn from the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2023 trade show, scheduled for next March.
Manitowoc, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, designs, manufactures, markets, and supports comprehensive product lines of mobile hydraulic cranes, lattice-boom crawler cranes, boom trucks, and tower cranes under the Aspen Equipment, Grove, Manitowoc, MGX Equipment Services, National Crane, Potain, and Shuttlelift brands.
“Over the last 18 months, Manitowoc has taken a multitude of actions to manage inflation. Due to the several price increases that we’ve passed on to our customers, we do not believe it’s appropriate to invest in a second large tradeshow at this time,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Aaron Ravenscroft. “We continue to invest heavily in new products and look forward to showing our latest developments at the upcoming bauma show [in Munich, Germany] in October 2022. As an alternative to ConExpo, we intend to host a Crane Days event at our Shady Grove, Pennsylvania location at a later date.”
