Hovago orders nine Tadano cranes
In the year of its 75th anniversary, Dutch crane service provider Hovago has treated itself to a special kind of gift and ordered no fewer than nine cranes from Tadano: three AC 5.220-1 and two AC 5.250-1 all terrain cranes, two GTC-1800EX telescopic crawler cranes and two CC 38.650-1 lattice boom crawler cranes. The first models will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year, giving Hovago its first major crane package under the harmonized Tadano brand and with new product designation. Originally, the 3-member Hovago delegation consisting of owner Doron Livnat, International Sales Manager Tiemen Reitsma and Operational Manager Paul Staps, had traveled to Zweibrücken to get information about different cranes and conditions. However, the talks with Tadano Demag CEO Jens Ennen and Tadano Demag Vice President Sales Thomas Schramm went so well that the contracts were signed immediately. Also at the table were Sales Manager Key Accounts, Uwe Schlicher, and Tadashi Suzuki, CEO Tadano European Holdings.
