Hiab, part of Cargotec, has secured an order for over 600 HIAB Loader Cranes from Tata Motors, India. The order follows the successful delivery of over 1200 HIAB Loader Cranes to Tata Motors in 2016 and it has been booked into Cargotec’s 2017 second quarter order intake. The deliveries are due to commence in the third quarter of 2017.
The trucks and cranes will be used by The Indian Defence Forces for transportation and loading-unloading of supplies, spares and other operational equipment.
This recent success established Hiab as the leading Loader Crane supplier in India. Hiab is in good position to adapt its business model to meet the future challenges of both, the Indian Army and the civil market of this fast growing economy.
“Our success is a result of Hiab’s commitment to provide the very best product and services to the Indian Army. We have been working tirelessly to ensure that the previous demanding program was delivered on schedule” says S. Srinivas, Director for Hiab Government Business Operations India.
