Concrane named Recom Moritsch distributor
By Hannah Sundermeyer08 November 2017
Concrane Sales Inc. has been named the exclusive distributor in Ontario, Canada for Recom Moritsch’s new range of luffing jib cranes and low-top hammerhead cranes.
Recom Moritsch follows a path laid out over 50 years of experience by Ferruccio Moritsch, creator and founder of Comedil based in Fontanafredda (Pordenone), Italy.
“My family’s technical and business experience dates back to 1962,” explained Mariano Moritsch, managing director, Recom Moritsch. “Drawing on the experience we’ve gained has allowed us to pursue quality cranes featuring state-of-the-art technology.”
“My family’s relationship with Enrico Redigonda [President of Concrane Sales Inc.] began back in 1988 with my father, Ferruccio,” explained Moritsch. “Enrico sold the first Comedil crane in Ontario, amongst many others, which went on to build much of the downtown core in Toronto.” Moritsch continued, “It’s through Enrico’s expertise and ability to work with us and the customer to deliver the right custom crane for their needs that makes us proud to continue our relationship after almost 30 years.”
“We’re thrilled to be the exclusive distributor for this brand new line of cranes that we’re confident will be quite impactful in the Canadian construction industry,” said Enrico Redigonda, president, Concrane Sales Inc. “Based on some of the issues we’ve seen with other cranes on the market, and the harsh Canadian weather, we’ve been working with Recom Moritsch over the last year or so to help make improvements and upgrades to a time-tested design.” Redigonda continued, “These truly are cranes that have been designed with the Canadian construction industry as a whole in mind.”
