Potain, Stirnimann celebrate Hup C 40-30 crane
The new Potain Hup C 40-30 is unique to Manitowoc’s Potain self-erecting tower crane line. This crane is from the groundbreaking Hup range and is enhanced with crawler tracks for ultimate mobility on job sites with challenging terrain (hence the “C” in the model’s name).
At bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany, representatives from Potain and Stirnimann celebrated the crane’s success. The two companies collaborated to develop the crane, and Stirnimann has since purchased six of them. During a champagne toast at the Manitowoc Cranes booth, Reudiger Boeck, director of sales for Potain tower cranes in central Europe, presented Stirnimann with an award for its efforts.
“We want to thank Stirnimann for its commitment to helping Potain develop the Hup C 40-30,” Boeck said. “Stirnimann invested significant time and effort into providing real-world feedback that influenced the ultimate design of this unique self-erecting crane. This type of collaboration is The Manitowoc way in action.”
