It is all very well to be able to supply pieces of materials handling equipment, but it is critical to be able to support these sophisticated machines in the field. And this is in terms of the safe erection of the tower crane making sure that it complies with all the legislative requirements as well as being able to maintain and service the unit during its usage on site.
