“There were two reasons why we decided to only use Terex cranes for this work site: firstly, they had the required lifting capacities. Secondly, it was remarkably easy to position them in an overlapping arrangement on the available space,” saysowner and general manager Berry Stravers. With 120 Terex towers in his 130 crane fleet, it was an easy pick for Stravers.

The Stravers location in the Dutch town of Veghel used 72 trucks to bring the six chosen cranes to Turnhout, where erecting them took a four-person team a full day each. The cranes will remain there for about a year and a half and will be used to lift prefab components, other building materials, and an endless amount of concrete buckets.

“Our cranes will be operating continuously, as there’s no concrete pump at the work site. This means that they need to do their job with perfect reliability—and that’s exactly what they’ll do,” says Stravers. “We trust in Terex Cranes because it’s been a reliable partner for the last 15 years. They have a good stock of spare parts, a quick delivery of spare parts and the products they make are of good quality.”
