The first Grove GRT655 and GRT655L rough terrain cranes have been produced at Manitowoc’s Niella Tanaro production facility in Italy. Since 2005, factory has manufactured and shipped more than a thousand rough terrain and small all terrain cranes around the globe. In 2018 the plant began manufacturing Grove GRT880 and GRT8100 rough-terrain cranes.
“This is a logical decision based on the success that we achieved over the last year with the production of the GRT880 and GRT8100,” Giorgio Angelino, senior vice president for mobile cranes in Europe and Africa, explained. “We received a very good response from our customers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific regarding models that were localized in Niella Tanaro. We are also getting enthusiastic feedback from the field, so we are confident that the customers will benefit greatly from this latest decision also.”
