Potain and Grove cranes showcased at KOMATEK by Manitowoc dealers in Turkey


Potain and Grove cranes have been showcased at the 14th KOMATEK International Construction Machinery, Technology & Equipment Trade Fair by two of Manitowoc’s key dealerships in Turkey, Teknovinç and Karun. The event was held in the Atatürk Culture Centre Ankara, Turkey. 

Representing Manitowoc as the largest tower crane operator in Turkey, Teknovinç exhibited a range of Potain tower cranes, MCT 205 and Igo 36 at the show. Having recently opened a new tower crane yard in the heart of the country, the company has increased its ability to serve the growing market. 

Headquartered in Istanbul, Teknovinç has held a dominant position in tower cranes sales since 1990 and was the first professional organization to offer rental tower crane services to the construction sector. The company has been recognized as a Manitowoc Elite dealer since 2012, thanks to its continuous investment into the team and the facilities to better serve their customers. The next stage of the company’s expansion plan will be the opening of another Potain tower crane yard in Ankara.

MCT 205
Topless tower crane, MCT 205, was launched in 2014 and is manufactured at Manitowoc’s factory in Zhangjiagang, China. The 10 t capacity crane has a 65 m jib length, and can lift an impressive 1.75 t at jib end. The crane features the latest technology and its modern design makes it quick to erect. Its topless design also makes it ideal for many job sites in Turkey.

Igo 36
The Igo 36 is one of Manitowoc’s most popular Potain self-erecting cranes, featuring a high level of specification as standard. The slewing, hoisting and trolleying mechanisms all have special inverters for closer control; radio remote control with lift data feedback comes with each crane; and the embedded Smartcom diagnostics system is included as standard. The 4 t capacity crane offers proven reliability and performance, compact transport mode and a highly automated and straightforward set-up. 

Karun Makina AŞ
Karun Makina AŞ was founded in 1989 when it first began supplying and supporting Grove and Manitowoc cranes in Turkey. Headquartered just outside Ankara, Karun’s Technical Service division offers a 4,000 m2 service center and parts warehouse, along with highly trained technicians. 

At KOMATEK, Karun displayed the Grove GMK6300L that will be supplied to one of the leading rental companies in Turkey, Aydın Vinç A.Ş, making it the customer’s fourth GMK6300L.

Grove GMK6300L
The 300 t capacity Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane is one of Manitowoc’s biggest success stories. It features a class-leading 80 m main boom and independent all-wheel steering. The cab is considered to be the most comfortable and advanced in the industry.

“Teknovinç and Karun represent Manitowoc’s long-standing, strong presence in this growing market, and are invaluable partners for ensuring we’re able to deliver the highest customer satisfaction,” said David Semple, VP sales for the region at Manitowoc. “Turkey is a key market for us, and is abundant with many special-requirement job sites such as dams and bridges. With services such as Manitowoc Crane Care, the most advanced customer support program in the industry, and Manitowoc CraneSTAR, one of the most extensive asset management systems, we’re able to offer solutions to our customers, not just cranes.”
