Weyers leaves Manitowoc

8. August 2017 | Comments (0)

Larry Weyers executive vice president at Manitowoc with responsibility for the Potain tower crane business has resigned and is officially leaving the company at the end of the month.

Weyers joined Manitowoc from Woods Equipment Company in 1998, when the only cranes the company produced were Manitowoc crawler cranes. Since then he has served in a variety of roles and was heavily involved in the integration of Potain when it was acquired by Manitowoc in 2001. As he moved up through the company he also headed the marketing and crane care division and in January 2015 was made president of Manitowoc Cranes, taking over from Eric Echart. However this position was eliminated at the end of the year when the Manitowoc group split into separately quoted crane and food service companies and Barry Pennypacker was appointed chief executive of the crane company.

In April last year the Grove and Manitowoc products were placed into a new Mobile crane division under Aaron Ravenscroft while Weyers headed the Potain tower crane business. The strategy then appeared to be to separate them into two almost stand-alone, more focussed operations. However going forward the two divisions will be managed by Ravenscroft.

Chief executive Barry Pennypacker said: “The board and I thank Larry for his strong leadership over the many years with Manitowoc. We are particularly appreciative of Larry’s service where he has been instrumental in building the company and will remain as a good friend of Manitowoc.”

“With Larry’s departure, Aaron Ravenscroft will become our new executive vice president of cranes and will be based out of our Dardilly, France facility. In addition, we will continue to take actions to flatten our organisational structure to improve our competitive position in the marketplace while enhancing our ability to exceed customer expectations with innovative products and services,”
