Manitowoc opens new facility in the Philippines

25 September 2019

Manitowoc has opened a new 2,900sqm facility with a warehouse and a workshop in Molino, Cavite, south of the Philippines capital, Manila.

The facility stocks parts for Potain tower cranes, including popular models such as the MCR 160, MCR 225 A, MCT 205, as well as parts for Grove mobile cranes such as the RT530E-2, RT765E-2 and the GMK6300L. Construction of the new facility was completed in July this year and Manitowoc staff have already moved in.

Michael Macatangay, Manitowoc sales director for the Philippines, said: “We want to provide the highest levels of support for our Grove mobile cranes and Potain tower cranes. The opening of this new warehouse is the latest example of our commitment to customers in the Philippines, following the expansion of our sales team earlier this year.”

Over 40 customers attended an open house event to celebrate the unveiling of the new facility last month. Cranes on display at the event included the Potain Hup 32-27 self-erecting tower crane and the Grove RT530E-2 rough-terrain crane and GMK3060 all-terrain crane.

Apart from seeing the models on display, customers were also able to watch live demonstrations of the Hup 32-27 and there were handover ceremonies to celebrate deliveries to two customers – Port-Link Container Yard Corporation and P.A. Alvarez Properties & Development Corporation.
