Larry Weyers, executive vice president for Manitowoc in the Americas, said the new dealer was chosen after careful consideration and will benefit Manitowoc's customers. "Based on our in-depth research on these very important markets, we implemented a comprehensive and detailed review of several potential candidates to become our new distributor which resulted in the selection of Western Pacific Crane and Equipment," Weyers explained.
