By Laura Hatton11 February 2013
Manitowoc Crane Care has added Danish company UN Mobilkraner to its Encore dealer programme.
UN Mobilkraner can now offer fully certified repair and refurbishment services for Grove mobile cranes in Scandinavia, under the Manitowoc Crane Care brand.
Niels Hoffman, general manager of UN Mobilkraner, said the new certification expands the company’s current services and reinforces its relationship with Manitowoc.
“We are very proud to achieve Encore partner status and to offer even more service to our customers,” Hoffman said. “This will further strengthen our long-standing relationship with Manitowoc and ensure we remain at the leading edge of crane services in Scandinavia.”
Gilberto Ferreira, Global Encore general manager at Manitowoc, said, “We are delighted to award UN Mobilkraner full certification to carry out approved refurbishments as our first Encore partner in EMEA, and we look forward to confirming other appointments in the coming months.
“The Encore programme not only provides customers with additional services at a local level but gives dealers the backing and support to provide services of the highest quality.”
The Encore partner programme began in 2011 in the USA.
