Manitex cranes to be certified for EU sales
Manitex has announced changes to the design of two cranes so they can be CE-certified and sold in the European Union.

The lifting equipment and aerial platform company plans to sell 40-tonne and 50-tonne models in Central and Eastern Europe.  

CE marking certifies that the manufacturer has built the crane in line with the EU Machinery Directive.

Andrew Rooke, CEO and president of Manitex, says the CE mark on the cranes will open up the European market. "Direct marketing, as well as the identification of suitable European dealers, has already commenced and we believe our cranes will provide a competitive solution against European truck cranes traditionally used in these territories."

Changes to the 50-tonne cranes will make load management and setup easier for the sole operator. A 'no-free-swing' option has been added for oil field service and power grid applications.
