The group of companies – Herrmann & Wittrock, Titschkus, & Wittrock, Wittrock, Ulferts, and Ulferts & Wittrock – possess multiple branches and have a long history of working together to form a network for heavy haulage, heavy lift, and elevated work platform machinery across Germany. With its new mobile crane package that is set to be delivered in the coming months, the network is embarking on a mission to modernise their mobile crane fleets. One of the owners, Marcus Wittrock, stated the 50-crane-package was reflective of the network’s desire to “impress” its customers with its “modern equipment”.

“Liebherr has been a trustworthy partner for us for many years,” he said. “We decided to go ahead with the new purchases, even though the current economic trends in Germany are not viewed positively; however, we are taking a long-term approach and showing courage and confidence in our industry.”

The conglomerate’s order contains cranes ranging from the three-axle class through to the six-axle class. Also contained within the order are LTM 1100-5.3 mobile cranes that feature the new LICCON3 system, as well as all the LTM 1110-5.2 cranes being ordered with extensive equipment such as a central lubrication in the chassis, LED driving lights, a central locking system with radio key, a rear-view camera and a lighting package.

The new cranes will contribute to the company’s vast network of machinery that features 200 mobile cranes with load capacities of 30 to 700 tonnes and crawler cranes with load capacities of 130 to 650 tonnes.
