Looking Up   Volume 1, Issue 1 was published in the middle of 2002, only a few months after Manitowoc acquired Grove and a little over a year after the company acquired Potain. With three industry-leading brands under one roof, it was clear the company needed a single platform to deliver its stories. That vehicle was Looking Up .  As with Manitowoc, the editorial team at Looking Up  always tries to maintain consistency in the things we do well while constantly looking to improve. Over the years, we’ve expanded the magazine; developed online subscriptions; increased our readership; made issues of the magazine available online and reached out to new regions in new languages. Of course, all of this would be for nothing without our valued readers — the Manitowoc users, dealers and customers the world over. One of the most rewarding parts of producing Looking Up  is hearing the varied and interesting stories of how Manitowoc cranes are bringing projects to life and changing the world. We hope we are doing a good job. Of course, for such a large company it is impossible to cover all bases at once, but we hope we present an interesting snapshot. If you have any ideas for the magazine or would like to give us feedback, then we’d love to hear from you. The address for all contact is  lookingup@manitowoc.com .  This issue we revisit H&E Equipment Services in the U.S., a company that featured in one of our very first issues. It is interesting to see what’s changed – and also, what hasn’t. There will be more of these articles, looking back over the past 10 volumes, so look out for them. In this issueComment Copies are available free of charge to crane customers, dealers, end users and enthusiasts.

The first three arrived toward the end of 2010, and the company exhibited them at the local FACIM trade fair. The cranes on show at the event were the GMK2035, GMK3055 and the GMK5170. Making up the remainder of the company’s order is an additional GMK2035 and GMK3055, plus two GMK4080-1 cranes.  Vitor Campos, area sales manager for Manitowoc, said the company was pleased to be dealing with one of the country’s leading equipment providers.“We are delighted to secure this significant sale with TCO Equipamentos, which is a prominent rental company in this country,” he said. “Grove GMK all-terrain cranes are popular across Africa where the patented Megatrak suspension offers excellent off-road capability.  These cranes for Mozambique will work on a variety of projects across the country.” Manitowoc presented two Dongyue truck cranes, the GT25-5A and GT55, and the Manitowoc MLC100 crawler crane at bauma China 2010 in Shanghai. John Wheeler, executive vice president for China, said Manitowoc focused on its support and commitment to China at the show.“Many companies are starting to recognize the potential of the Chinese market and are establishing factories and sales and service offices here,” he said. “Manitowoc is different. We have been manufacturing and selling cranes in China since the 1980s.”  The Dongyue GT55 is a new crane and was seen for the first time at bauma China. The 55 t (60 USt) capacity crane is the latest truck crane from Manitowoc’s factory in TaiAn, China. The 25 t (28 USt) capacity GT25-5A was not new at the show, but is one of the newer models from the brand, having launched earlier in 2010. The MLC100 is a 100 t (110 USt) capacity crawler crane designed by Manitowoc in China, and it features all the high-quality fabrications and mechanisms customers expect from Manitowoc. One of the first MLC100 cranes worked on a project near Zhangjiagang where it was used for steel erection and other lifting, on the construction of commercial buildings.Wheeler said Manitowoc’s capabilities are a real differentiator for crane customers in China. “At Manitowoc, we do more than just supply cranes,” he said. “Our support teams help our customers get the most from their cranes in terms of profitability and productivity. Our customers know that with Manitowoc, they can add more to their bottom line, which is the most important thing.” Three Grove all-terrain cranes, from a seven crane order, arrive in Mozambique. News Manitowoc at bauma China Mozambique mobile cranes Team work on wind project North American crane rental company Irving Equipment sent a Manitowoc 16000 and Manitowoc 888 from its extensive fleet to help with the erection of 18 wind turbines on a project in New Brunswick, Canada. Together the crawler cranes helped position 18 Vestas  V 90 turbines, with a 3 MW power output.  The Manitowoc 888 placed the blades, weighing 15,000 lb (6.8 t), while the Manitowoc 16000 lifted the tower sections, machine houses and hubs. Both cranes were rented for the project by power company TransAlta.Doug Costello, sales and marketing manager for Irving Equipment, said an additional safety limit was imposed on all cranes on the job.“The contractor imposed its own factor of safety on this project, requiring all cranes to work at 85 percent of their capacity,” he said. “Both the 888 and 16000 worked well together, and the project was completed without incident.”  A Manitowoc 888 lifts wind turbine blades on a project in New Brunswick, Canada.The Manitowoc booth at bauma China welcomed hundreds of visitors during the course of the show.
