Singapore-based crane and logistics distributor Hiap Heng Heavyequipment Co Pte Ltd has added a second Tadano ATF 220G-5 crane to its fleet.
Tadano Asia Pte Ltd and its local distributor, Multico Equipment & Parts Pte Ltd, delivered the 220-t capacity all-terrain crane to Hiap Heng, which consistently reviews and upgrades its fleets as the company expands and addresses the increasing equipment rental needs in Singapore.
“We have a good working relationship with the sales team of Tadano Asia and Multico. Technical service support is very strong,” said Joyce Foo Hui Chin, director of Hiap Heng.
Hiap Heng offers customers rough-terrain and all-terrain cranes ranging from 55 to 220 t, catering to a wide variety of jobsite conditions and logistical challenges. Through the years, the company has fostered a reputation for credibility and reliability for heavy equipment and maintenance services that deploy to infrastructure and construction sectors in both mainland and offshore Singapore.
Hiap Heng opted to purchase a second ATF 220G-5 after its impactful experience with the first model. “The first 220 t crane that we have is resilient. The breakdown time is less compared to other brands that we have; customers are happy,” said Ms Foo.
“Our maintenance team is familiar with [them], as we mainly own Tadano cranes. Therefore, our own technicians can troubleshoot and solve minor problems. This, in turn, translates to less down time and lower maintenance costs.”
Ms Foo also noted that the resale price of Tadano cranes are “pretty high,” providing value for Hiap Heng even when the company moves on to newer cranes for its fleet.
“Tadano is a reliable brand. That is the reason we have been buying Tadano cranes since day one,” she said.
