Grúas Villarreal’s new MLC165 will go to work in the Mexican petrochemical industry.

The growing Mexican petrochemical industry just received its newest heavy-duty crawler crane: the Manitowoc MLC165. The 182-ton capacity crane was purchased by Grúas Villarreal, a Veracruz-based rental company, at CONEXPO 2014 in Las Vegas. The company took delivery of its new crane soon after.

Having one of the largest fleets of Manitowoc cranes in Mexico, Grúas Villarreal already owns about 30 of the company’s mobile cranes from across the rough-terrain, all-terrain and truck-mounted ranges, as well as nine National Crane boom trucks. At CONEXPO, the company also ordered a 660-ton capacity Manitowoc 18000 crawler crane that is now the highest capacity crane in its fleet.
