Manitowoc in India

Manitowoc has been manufacturing tower cranes under license in India for almost 30 years and mobile cranes in the country through a partner for 15 years. Manitowoc’s drive to serve India as locally as possible has led to the addition of regional sales offices in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune.

Manitowoc cranes are also busy at work helping India to develop and modernize. Examples include:

  • More than 300 Manitowoc cranes are working on the Jamnagar Refinery in Gujarat, India. The project, owned by Reliance Petroleum Ltd, is one of the largest refinery construction projects active in the world.
  • Three India-made Potain tower cranes helped to construct the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, an office and residential building development.
  • One of India’s largest energy contractors used a Manitowoc 18000 crawler crane to help with a major power plant expansion. Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd used the 18000 on the Gujarat State Energy Generation plant, a part of India’s initiative to expand its energy infrastructure.
  • Potain cranes helped to build the $67 million the “Wave 1st Silver Tower” retail and office development in Noida, India.
