Patrick Gillis, GG Crane Group president and managing director, has updated his father Gaspard’s tower crane designs from the 1960s

Patrick Gillis, GG Crane Group president and managing director, was an engineer at Caterpillar for four years, at AEG for three years and then at Schneider before establishing a yacht leasing company and then one for expensive cars.

In the 1960s Patrick's father, Gaspard, designed, patented and built three examples of the original design for the GG tower crane. Following his father's death in 2007, Patrick made it his mission to recreate his father's crane. He has redesigned, updated and patented it ready to become the "tower crane of the 21st Century."
