By Alex Dahm01 March 2017
India’s largest crane rental company, Sanghvi Movers, is expanding its all terrain fleet with the addition of 18 new 300 tonners from Grove.
Chris Sanghvi, Sanghvi Movers chairman and managing director, signed the deal with Jens Ennen, Manitowoc senior vice president, mobile cranes Europe & Africa, and David Semple, Manitowoc senior vice president, mobile cranes, Asia and the Middle East.
Sanghvi told ICST that deliveries of the six axle GMK6300L will start in May 2017. He said that he chose Grove because of the price and good after sales service.
Manufacturer Manitowoc said that its Grove GMK6300L remains one of the most popular cranes around and is probably the best-selling 6-axle AT in the world.
Sanghvi Movers has a fleet of 440 cranes from 40 tonnes capacity up to an 800 tonne capacity Liebherr LR 1800 crawler. The average age of equipment in the fleet is 10 to 12 years, Sanghvi said. Its composition by manufacturer is roughly as follows: 30 % Liebherr, 30 % Terex, 15 % Kobelco, 15 % Sany, 10 % Manitowoc.
