Potain, Stirnimann Celebrate Hup C 40-30 Crane at bauma 2019

During a champagne toast at the Manitowoc Cranes booth at bauma 2019, Stirnimann was presented an award for its efforts. 

April 8, 2019 - At bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany, representatives from Potain and Stirnimann celebrated the Potain Hup C 40-30 crane. The two companies collaborated to develop the crane, and Stirnimann has since purchased six of them. During a champagne toast at the Manitowoc Cranes booth, Reudiger Boeck, director of sales for Potain tower cranes in central Europe, presented Stirnimann with an award for its efforts. 

The new Potain Hup C 40-30 is unique to Manitowoc’s Potain self-erecting tower crane line. The crane is from the Hup range, and is enhanced with crawler tracks for ultimate mobility on jobsites with challenging terrain.

“We want to thank Stirnimann for its commitment to helping Potain develop the Hup C 40-30,” Boeck said. “Stirnimann invested significant time and effort into providing real-world feedback that influenced the ultimate design of this unique self-erecting crane. This type of collaboration is ‘the Manitowoc way’ in action.”
