About the numbers
26 February 2008
The ICm 20 listing of the world's largest crane manufacturers is based on financial turnover (sales) of cranes and lifting equipment for the calendar year 2006 or, in the case of Japanese manufacturers, the fiscal year from April 2005 to March 2006. Information is from a range of sources, including financial reports (from publicly traded companies), companies' own submissions and data from financial research organisations.
While IC strives to ensure the data presented here is as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee it so the table should only be used as a guide. If you have any relevant financial information or suggestions to help develop the listing please contact the editorial department.
*Estimated figures for lifting equipment sales only
