Tower Mark, a construction equipment sales and rental company in Hong Kong, has ordered 30 new Manitowoc crawler cranes.

The order includes Manitowoc 8500-1, 11000-1 and 12000-1 crawlers. The 8500-1 has an 80 tonne capacity while the 11000-1 crawler lifts 100 tonnes. Both cranes support a 61 metre heavy-lift boom. The 12000-1 is rated at 100 tonnes capacity and has a 71 m maximum main boom.

Speaking on the order, Mark Simpson, Tower Mark director, said, “We are impressed by the evolving functionality, reliability and innovative design of Manitowoc cranes. We are very pleased with the level of Manitowoc Crane Care service and spare parts support that we get locally and from the regional head office in Singapore. We are grateful for the comprehensive and effective training programmes provided by Manitowoc Crane Care and their importance in training our service team.”

In addition to the 30 crawler cranes, Tower Mark also ordered two 45 tonne capacity Grove RT600E rough terrain cranes.

Tower Mark’s fleet is dispersed through Hong Kong, where the cranes work on civil and residential projects across the region.

Deliveries will be spread over the course of 2013.
