News Release

Lambertsson Kran takes delivery of the first MDT 809 – a tower crane it helped design

4/12/2019

Sweden’s Lambertsson Kran has purchased the new Potain MDT 809 on display at Manitowoc’s booth for bauma 2019. The MDT 809 will be available for rental use within the fleets of both Lambertsson and Norwegian crane sales & rental company Kranor AS.

The recently unveiled topless crane reflects a valuable partnership between Potain and Lambertsson. Lambertsson provided design input through Manitowoc’s Voice of the Customer program, one of the key strategies of The Manitowoc Way, which puts Manitowoc’s customers at the center of its business.

Aaron Ravenscroft, executive vice president of cranes at Manitowoc, presented Lambertsson with a celebratory plaque to mark the occasion and thanked Managing Director Jan Heed for his company’s input in the MDT 809’s design.
