Chinese crane manufacturer XCMG has appointed Dutch equipment dealer Cranes For You as its distributor for the Benelux region.
Based in Houten, central Netherlands, Cranes For You will sell XCMG cranes in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, while also expanding XCMG sales elsewhere in Europe on a non exclusive basis. The company was set up by Peter Verhoef, owner of industry recruitment specialist 12hoist4u and Hadimpro, a crane and transport safety and engineering consultancy.
He said that the company will focus on selling 60 and 100 tonne capacity All Terrain cranes, as well as 85, 130 and 260 tonne crawler cranes. The company has received its first order, a 100 tonne XCA100E All Terrain crane, from a company in Germany.
Verhoef said: “During 2019 further investments in a European maintenance, spare parts and training centre are to be expected.”
