Manitowoc to distribute Grove cranes in Russia with UST

6/20/2011 Manitowoc, Wisconsin, United States

Manitowoc formed a partnership with UST, one of Russia’s largest construction equipment distributors, for Grove mobile crane sales and service in Russia. Leaders from Manitowoc and UST met at the UST headquarters near Moscow to sign the distribution agreement June 1, during the CTT show in Moscow. UST has already ordered four Grove mobile cranes.

Jean-Claude Doucene, commercial director for Manitowoc Russia CIS, said the partnership maintains the high service level and professionalism Grove customers expect.

“We are delighted to join forces with UST,” he said. “The company has one of the best reputations in the equipment business, so our customers will get the sales and support they need.”

Manitowoc has multiple dealers in Russia. Global Cranes has sold Grove cranes in Russia since 2006 and has a large customer base. It will continue to sell Grove cranes in Russia, along with UST. In addition to consultation and sales, UST and Global Cranes provide full Manitowoc Crane Care customer support. UST has 14 branches and nearly 30 sub-dealers across Russia.
