Amrit Cranes adds GMK6300L to fleet after used Grove cranes impress in India

6/3/2013 Gujarat, India

When sales of new cranes in India slowed following the financial crisis, Manitowoc’s Indian dealer TIL changed its approach and began offering more used Grove cranes to its customers as high quality and cost-effective alternatives. The company quickly saw results and the quality of Grove cranes convinced customers, one in particular, to place an order for a new GMK6300L, which is due for delivery later this year.

Amrit Crane Service, a rental company based in Gujarat, purchased a 220 t capacity GMK6220L from TIL in 2011. Soon after, Amrit ordered an additional two used cranes from TIL — two 50 t capacity GMK3050s. The cranes went to work almost immediately and provided general lifting services at construction projects across the region. Amrit’s fleet has since expanded to include five used Grove cranes.

The performance and reliability of the used Grove cranes gave Amrit the confidence to invest in the new 300 t capacity GMK6300L. Amrit founder and owner Narinder Singh explains:

“I have become a loyal customer of Grove cranes and will continue to buy them from TIL as long as they are happy to sell to me,” he says. “I’m so impressed with the performance of the used Grove cranes that I am confident sending them to any job site to perform efficient and reliable work. I look forward to adding the new crane to our growing business.”

All used cranes supplied by TIL are fully certified and inspected before delivery. Most of the used cranes being sold in India were owned by contractors who purchased them for specific projects, which have finished.

After learning the tricks of the trade at a small crane rental and transport firm in Mumbai, Narinder Singh founded Amrit Crane Service in 1995. The company has grown from a single 20 t capacity crane to a fleet of 45 cranes and a major player in Gujarat’s crane rental industry. The GMK6300L will be the largest in the Gujarat fleet.
