Kranlyft appointed Glassworker dealer

13 March 2020

Kranlyft Group has been appointed the exclusive distributor of Glassworker’s products for the United Kingdom and the Scandinavian market including Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.

Manufactured in Germany, the Glassworker range consists of suction disc units, panel suction units, transport units, and complete mounting machines.

The distribution contract has been agreed and signed by Kranlyft Group’s CEO Jurgen Vater and Uplifters’ CEO’s Martin Lobinger and Sebastian Bayer. Uplifter is the sole owner of the Glassworker brand.

With twelve products in the range and growing, Glassworker says it aims to become the market leader in the vacuum gear segment. The glass assembly cranes for glass plates and windows lift quickly and allow very precise positioning. These mounting machines have an all-electric drive and can be used indoors as well as outdoors.

For higher heights the separate suction discs units can be mounted on a mini crane. The largest mounting machine, GW 625, has a load capacity of up to 625kg and is built to manage triple-glazed windows with ease. “The Glassworker devices are for the all-around craftsmen who build façades with glass, stone, and panels,” said Kranlyft Group.

”As a specialist in providing lifting solutions, we have for a long time searched for great glass lifters to rely on. After a long period of evaluation and a large number of satisfied users we have made our choice to strengthen the relationship with Uplifter and their vacuum gear brand. With Glassworker as a part of our portfolio, we can now ensure that our customers handle glass, stone and panels with confidence. High quality in combination with great German engineering has resulted in outstanding products,” said Jurgen Vater, CEO of Kranlyft Group.

”The demand for vacuum lifting gear and glass assembly cranes in the last years has grown tremendously with no end in sight. When constructing modern buildings, surfaces of glass are indispensable and most architects are using glass as the go-to material more and more. The size and weight of each single glass piece for assembly are getting bigger and heavier, and can thus not be handled by hand anymore. These simple reasons will guarantee the demand for safe and effective solutions in regards to glass handling. We are very proud to announce that Kranlyft Group is our exclusive partner for both Scandinavia and the United Kingdom. For many years we have known the company very well, and we look forward to further strengthen our cooperation going forward.” said Sebastian Bayer, CEO of Uplifter.

In addition to the Glassworker product range, Kranlyft Group's range of machines includes Maeda mini cranes, Magni telescopic handlers and Klaas aluminum truck and trailer cranes.
