Changing markets demand evolution of suppliers
Over time, the company carefully evaluated the market to ensure that their crane fleet provides equipment that meets the needs of their customers. As the market changes, requirements of their fleet changes as well to support it. With Hanni Cranes’ equipment and experience, customers have access to everything they need to complete their job successfully.
How PALFINGER fits into the new fleet
To handle the job at heights, they originally used a self-propelled boom lift and transported this equipment from one location to another via a trailer which is very cumbersome and time consuming. Time is money, and since the waiting time of a Tuck Mounted AWP is negligible, it saves lot of money, and the utilization time is very high. As a result, they started getting work orders for long term contracts for such AWPs instead of self-propelled units.
They started with the idea of looking into this business as on-road vehicle equipment rental for hourly and daily basis after purchasing a Palfinger P240A Truck mounted AWP since the AWP is mounted on an LMV (Light Motor Vehicle with 7.2 Ton GVW truck) with a 5-meter length. They started getting short-term and long-term contracts which works well as required revenue is guaranteed and management of the fleet for this combination is the skill that they have gained over time.

With their first P240A AWP in 2017, the market's ongoing demand has driven this to now 6 units of Palfinger AWP. They also have ordered 4 units of P240A and 2 units of P280A which is to be delivered in 2023. They also look to add other Palfinger products to their fleet on regular intervals, and are highly satisfied with their partnership our team in India.
