Grove RTs sold to Polish firm

15 April 2008

POLAND: Grabcranex, Grove's Poland dealer, has sold and delivered two 45 tonne (50 ton) RT650E rough-terrain mobile cranes to Gastel, one of the country's largest crane rental companies. Warsaw-based Grabcranex delivered both RTs to Gastel's facility in the Baltic port of Gdynia in northern Poland. Gastel is using the cranes in the port's shipyards for a range of duties on docked vessels.

Pawel Kedzierski, managing director of Grabcranex, said demand for modern lifting equipment was the reason behind Grove's recent success in Eastern Europe. “The need for new and efficient machines continues to grow in this part of the world, and the RT600E range offers some of the best capacities in its class,” he said.

Gastel has four facilities in Warsaw, Gdynia, Wroclaw, and Katowice, Poland. The company also specializes in civil engineering and has a fleet of 30 cranes between 18 tonnes (19.8 US tons) to 200 tonnes (220 tons).

Grabcranex has two offices, one in Poznan and another in the Polish capital of Warsaw. It also has three service bases across Poland, in Plock, Gdansk, and Katowice.
