News Release

Five new Grove cranes boost Tiong Woon’s Singapore fleet

12/8/2014

One of Asia’s largest crane operating companies has taken delivery of one of the largest orders ever received for Grove’s hugely popular GMK6300L all-terrain crane. The order was placed by Tiong Woon Crane & Transport Pte. Ltd., who signed the deal for five of the class-leading 300 t capacity GMK6300L all-terrain cranes earlier this year. All five of the units have been delivered to the company’s Singapore headquarters.

With this latest order complete, there are now 18 Grove cranes in the Tiong Woon fleet, all of which have arrived in the past seven years. The company uses the cranes, including the new GMK6300L units, on a variety of industrial and construction projects for clients across the Southeast Asia region.

The ground-breaking, five-crane deal was commemorated at the bauma China 2014 trade show in Shanghai, China at the end of November, with senior management figures from both Tiong Woon and Manitowoc in attendance. Among those at the Shanghai event was Tiong Woon chairman, Ang Kah Hong, who explained why the company has been consistently building its fleet of Grove cranes and, in particular, why the GMK6300L will be such an important addition.

“Grove cranes are very popular units with our customers,” he said. “When the Grove GMK6300L was launched in 2010 we could see that its onboard innovation gave it capabilities that other cranes didn’t have, particularly with its 80 m boom. We watched the arrival of the first units in Asia with interest and quickly realized that this crane would be a great solution for many of our customers. It was only a matter of time until we ordered our own, and we saw such strong potential for the GMK6300L that we ordered five units.”

The Grove GMK6300L is a six-axle, all-terrain crane and, in addition to its 300 t capacity and class-leading 80 m main boom, it also features Grove’s unique MEGATRAK independent suspension, as well as all-wheel steer for easier navigation of job sites.

Over the past seven years, Tiong Woon has invested steadily in Grove cranes, and its confidence in the brand has grown continuously. Tiong Woon’s Grove fleet includes RT760E and RT890E cranes from the rough-terrain crane lineup and GMK3055 and GMK5095 units from the all-terrain crane lineup.

Tiong Woon Crane & Transport Pte Ltd., is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tiong Woon Holdings Ltd., and was established in 1978 and then listed on the Singapore Stock Market in 1999. Over its history the company has delivered consistent growth and is today one of Southeast Asia’s largest crane fleet owners. Its vast fleet of crawler, hydraulic, rough-terrain, all-terrain, truck and tower cranes serve the region’s oil and gas, petrochemical, infrastructure, and construction sectors.
