Satisfied Konecranes Customers
Konecranes provided Bauer with eight overhead cranes and two Rubber Tired Gantry cranes. Bauer chose Konecranes based on its competitive prices and full overhead crane service team. Konecranes was able to partner with Bauer to design cranes that would fit the customer’s exact needs.

“There are many reasons for working in such close cooperation with Konecranes, but the most important reasons are absolute, certified and environmental quality, delivery reliability, total cost of ownership and being a global company with a local network for service, maintenance and spare parts.”
-Fredrik Olson, Wärtsilä

“We were able to compare the price and quality of work during the process, and Konecranes did better. The company completed its tasks more meticulously, and information about machine-to-machine progress was more readily available to our foremen. These experiences spoke of a service contract with Konecranes.”
-Mika Vilen, Director of Component Plants at Metso Automation
