Managing director Ralf Teichmann said: "With Krafotec we have gained a long established crane manufacturing company, that due to its tradition and experience is a valuable addition. With the newly acquired site, we will use the existing know how in design, production and service to further grow but at the same time remain as flexible as possible being a medium size company. We will continue to offer the complete crane package to our Krafoec customers - from the crane delivery to after-sales services such as our spare parts service. The synergy effects of the Teichmann Group in the area of service and maintenance with locations in Berlin, Eisenhüttenstadt, Rostock, Erfurt, Wittenberg, Essen, Duisburg, Augsburg, Mannheim and Basel furthermore enables us to provide excellent reaction times for our customers."
