Manitex International announced a new contract valued at approximately $4.5 million dollars to supply knuckle boom cranes to an international military entity.
Initial production is anticipated to start in early-2020, and the contract provides for an optional $4 million in additional deliveries.
This custom Manitex knuckle boom crane has been engineered and configured to the customer’s demanding specifications and has passed a thorough performance testing protocol which lasted several months and included heavy off-road durability and strength testing by the customer.
“We are proud to receive this contract from one of the world’s leading military organizations who maintains very stringent and demanding product specifications for their operations in the field,” said Randy Wingenroth, senior vice president, articulating cranes, Manitex International. “This contract award provides a solid foundation for military production of articulating cranes at our Georgetown, TX plant and further supports our growth plans for this location. We look forward to providing equipment that supports the safety, security, and success of our country’s and our allies’ servicemen and women, here and abroad.”
