Increased capabilities aimed at developing European, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific markets.

The Manitowoc plant in Niella Tanaro, Italy has expanded its manufacturing capabilities to include the production of Grove GRT8120 and GRT8100-1 rough-terrain cranes. The plant serves customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific. The GRT8120 is the largest Grove RT crane ever built at the plant, offering a 120-ton capacity and impressive features. It has a 60m MEGAFORMTM boom, a tip height of 80.8m with the optional jib, and the MAXbase outrigger system for flexibility. The GRT8100-1 replaces the older GRT8100 and combines the cab and carrier of the GRT8120 for improved operation and servicing. The Niella Tanaro plant embraces lean manufacturing and offers locally produced cranes with shared components for efficient parts support.
