“We welcome this talented group of Whiting colleagues to Konecranes and look forward to driving together our new and exciting growth opportunities,” said Bernie D’Ambrosi, SVP Americas for Industrial Service and Equipment at Konecranes.

For more than 100 years, Whiting has served a variety of customers including steel mills, automotive plants, fossil fuel plants, metal service centres, and hydro-electric and nuclear power plants.

The business being acquired has some 130 employees in seven locations.
