With a global staff numbering over 16,200, and an annual turnover of £3.1 Billion, they have firmly established themselves as a lifting business which customers everywhere can trust.
In terms of local manufacturing, Mr. Harvey explains how Konecranes operates throughout the Midlands utilising its office based in West Bromwich - the largest service branch in the UK. The company also deploys over 230 highly-trained technicians, who travel out to businesses and service their lifting equipment every day.
One of the main sectors in which Kronecranes operate is the automotive industry, working with the biggest names in automotive manufacturing. Mr. Harvey details the excitement felt throughout the company in terms of their latest partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team, through which the Konecranes branding will be proudly displayed upon the likes of Valtteri Bottas.
