PALFINGER raises Solutions and Product Innovations to the next Level
At the IAA Transportation 2022 customers and partners were able to gain an insight into the future of crane and lifting solutions. For six days, the global market leader PALFINGER presented innovative products and solutions to hundreds of thousands of trade fair visitors.
For PALFINGER, customer proximity is the key to success. The international technology and mechanical engineering company proved this with its wide range of smart and sustainable lifting solutions at the IAA Transportation in Hanover. Crane and lifting solutions of the future packed with smart and eco-efficient systems, which make customers' lives easier, safer, more cost effective and more efficient, were presented on a display area totaling around 2,000 m2. For 90 years, customers and partners have appreciated PALFINGER's pioneering spirit. True to the tagline “Together we can reach anything”, the global company places its customers at the center of all activities.
Longer, quieter, lighter, and above all smarter
“We see challenges not as an obstacle, but as an opportunity. We create solutions and provide answers. That is what drives us as the world market leader, and therefore the entire industry as well. Our customers are always the center of our focus. Because we can only deliver suitable products and solutions if we know their challenges,” says PALFINGER CEO Andreas Klauser, summarizing the company's strategy. These solutions attracted a lot of attention at the numerous product shows. That is because the innovative PK 250 TEC - on display for the first time - is the smartest of all loader cranes; GENERATION 3, the new generation of timber and recycling cranes, has the longest reach; the F3 151 Silent Pack is the lightest and at the same time quietest truck-mounted forklift in its class; and the PTC 1000 LLW, is the lightest 1,000 kg tail lift to be launched on the market. PALFINGER is also applying the potential of digitalization to its customers’ advantage and presented new features and solutions along the entire customer journey. From the PALFINGER product configurator and the eCommerce shop, to the IMPACT service app for tail lifts and PALFINGER Connected. The six days at the IAA were full of innovations and technologically future oriented products.
Into the future together
Talks with experts and numerous customer, dealer and partner meetings at the PALFINGER stand contributed to a successful exchange of experiences and ideas. The global company’s plans make this all the more necessary. With its Vision & Strategy 2030 and the associated pillars “Go Digital” and “Go for Solutions”, PALFINGER is driving comprehensive digitalization of all areas of the company and expanding its range of products and services. The clear goal is to offer customers and partners integrated complete solutions. “The IAA Transportation gives us the opportunity to present our vision and strategy in direct relation to the product. Because nothing is more effective than a positive reaction from a convinced customer, who is impressed by an innovative solution to their problem. And that is exactly why we are here,” explains Andreas Klauser.
