Tadano donates crane to support earthquake reconstruction efforts

April 5, 2023  By Don Horne

On February 6, a massive earthquake near the border between southern Turkiye and Syria killed more than 50,000 people – and one company saw that they needed to help.

“The devastating consequences of this earthquake have caused great consternation at Tadano,” read a statement from the company. “We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to those affected by the disaster and our appreciation to all those who are working hard for recovery and reconstruction.”

Tadano Ltd. is donating an ATF 50G-3 all terrain crane to the Turkish government to help in the ongoing recovery and reconstruction efforts in the affected areas of the Turkyie-Syria earthquake. The crane will be delivered through ENKA Pazarlama Ihracat Ithalat A.Ş., a distributor of Tadano products and services based in Istanbul, Turkyie.

“The company will serve as the point of contact for the donation and will provide free transportation within Turkyie, commissioning after arrival, and operational training.”


The ATF 50G-3 all terrain crane donated is a compact model and is able to manage the kind of rough roads that can be expected in the disaster-stricken area. It is a small, maneuverable type of crane, and we believe that this crane will make a wide contribution to the ongoing restoration and reconstruction of the affected areas.

“Tadano has built a close business relationship with Turkyie over many years,” adds the company. “We hope that this crane will help the local rehabilitation and reconstruction activities proceed quickly and safely.”
