Tadano America Regional Business Manager Dave Kuhlman says larger AT’s are growing in popularity.

“Over the last several years, CraneWorks has become a retail leader for our highest capacity all terrain cranes,” he said. “Their recent commitment for multiple orders of our 350-ton, 500-ton and 600-ton capacity all-terrain crane models continues to prove their dedication to serving the market for Tadano’s largest lift capacity products.”

The two companies have a long-standing relationship, as CraneWorks ownership and executives have worked with Tadano’s executives for over 26 years.

“The fact that Tadano listens to and values feedback from CraneWorks is key to this relationship,” said Scott Wilson, vice president of sales and marketing, CraneWorks Inc. “From the top of Tadano America Corporation down to the staff pulling it all together, it is a true partnership. While Dean Barley, Ken Butz, Ingo Schiller, Dan Melnyk, Ryan Chapman, Matt Klasel, Dave Kuhlman, and Leon Bowden might be the primary team for our business discussions, there are many more individuals that make the partnership work.
