The Top Crane Brasil Award for 2023 acknowledged crane rental companies in Brazil effectively utilizing Manitowoc machines for various construction tasks. Among the winners of this recognition are several Manitowoc partners, highlighting their outstanding contributions to successful projects across the country throughout the year.
Luciano Dias, sales director of Manitowoc in Brazil, expressed pride in the partners' achievements, emphasizing the importance of finding the right crane for each job. He noted the significance of the Top Crane Brasil Award in promoting excellence and acknowledging outstanding performance in the industry.
“We are very proud to see our partners recognized for their fantastic work and helping contractors find the right crane for the right job,” said Luciano Dias, sales director of Manitowoc in Brazil. “Top Crane Brasil is a reputable award in our industry, and it encourages companies to seek peak performance and earn recognition at the end of the year.”
The awards committee evaluated 49 projects, with 16 receiving prizes across categories such as Lifting, Rigging Plan, Working at Height, Technical Removal, and Transport.
