Comansa CM, sister company of Spanish tower crane manufacturer Linden Comansa, has appointed Boommate, Inc as its official dealer in the Philippines.
Robin Hu, Comansa CM export manager, said, “Comansa CM targeted the Philippine market in 2011, but we were not successful. The market had been dominated by a long-time leader until many cheap manufacturers from China gradually took control. The competition was very tough.”
Wilbert Inchoco, Boommate, Inc vice president, added, “Philippines is a very price-sensitive market. Teaching the industry about the advantages of investing in high-quality products like Comansa CM cranes was one of our main goals and I believe we are succeeding. Actually, we have already organised in Manila a couple of product and technical training workshops in co-operation with Comansa CM which had more than 60 attendees from 20 construction companies each. The market is now learning about the advantages of the flat top design in comparison to the old fashioned pendant jibs, or the crane’s modular system, which gives flexibility in application for all kind of projects and is a great solution for narrow jobsites.”
“The economy is growing and the government is investing in infrastructure and housing developments. We expect the demand to last at least until 2022, so we are very satisfied to partner with a high quality manufacturer like Comansa CM,” Inchoco added.
The first Comansa CM tower crane sold by Boommate, Inc is working on the construction of the University Tower P. Noval, a 47 storey residential building in Manila. The 21CJ290 crane has a load capacity of 18 tonnes.
