Manitowoc has appointed two new dealers for its Grove brand in Asia to support growing demand in the region for its advanced range of mobile cranes. The two companies include Rainbow Ace Ltd of Hong Kong and Tuyet Nga Co Ltd (TNC) based in Hanoi, Vietnam. Both will sell the full line of Grove all-terrain, rough-terrain and truck cranes and offer comprehensive Manitowoc Crane Care customer support.
Rainbow Ace was established 25 years ago, and the company already sells and supports a number of construction equipment brands to serve sectors such as road building and general construction. Chow Kwok Kei, general manager at the company, said he expects strong interest in the Grove brand now that his company is offering dedicated, in-country representation.
“There is a healthy population of Groves in Hong Kong that are performing well but which will benefit from on-the-ground support,” said Mr Chow. “We are delighted to partner with Manitowoc to sell and support these impressive cranes. The designs are compact and offer superior capabilities as well as unique technologies, such as the Megatrak suspension system. This will appeal to Hong Kong companies who often need to work in congested spaces but still require powerful lifting support.”
TNC in Hanoi (pictured below) is another well-established and experienced equipment reseller, with a host of brands in its current portfolio. With more than 20 years of experience, the company’s staff includes a crew of 30 technicians with deep knowledge of industrial equipment.
Tran Kim Dzung, general director of TNC, said the company expects to supply cranes to several growing business sectors, such as construction, oil and gas, mining and power generation.
“We chose to partner with Grove because its product range offers a multitude of technical options for customers that allow us to offer the right crane for customer needs,” said Ms Tran. “We’re expecting strong interest in the Grove range of rough-terrain cranes, which have a world class reputation and should be an attractive option for our customers in Vietnam.”
