Krandienst Schulz has placed an order with Liebherr for a package of nine mobile cranes with lifting capacities ranging from 60 to 650 tonnes. The new cranes will enable the Hamburg-based company to expand its fleet to meet increasing demand around the city and its new branch in Stade.
The order includes models LTM 1060-3.1, LTM 1070-4.2, LTM 1090-4.2, LTM 1230-5.1, LTM 1300-6.2 and the new LTM 1650-8.1. Company owner Günter Sichward explains:
“We are continuing to pursue our strategic plan to standardise our crane fleet. We decided on Liebherr because Liebherr offers the best overall package – powerful machines with innovative technology and uniform operation. Liebherr cranes also retain their value particularly well”.
Managing Director Klaus Schmidt continues: “Liebherr supplies us with mobile cranes featuring engines with the latest emissions technology and particulate filters. The VarioBase variable support base is available for the entire range. All the cranes have the same control interface, which makes it easier for the operators. We also save time and money in the workshop as our personnel only require basic and advanced training from a single manufacturer”.
Krandienst Schulz also appreciates Liebherr’s outstanding after-sales service. Schmidt says:
“We are only allowed to work on many sites in Hamburg on Sundays and public holidays. Even on those days, a Liebherr service engineer will arrive on-site within an hour. He will either bring the right spare parts with him or they will be delivered straight away”.
Krandienst Schulz now has 27 Liebherr mobile cranes and five MK mobile construction cranes, which, in addition to the construction industry, are also used at the ports, in general industry, and petrochemicals. The company also has four loading cranes in various lifting capacity classes. Speaking about the company’s 60-strong workforce, Managing Director Klaus Schmid says: “Our motivated workforce is our company’s greatest asset”.
