“Sany is committed to delivering high-quality cranes and exceptional customer service to our clients in the UK,” said Snow. “I am delighted to join the Sany team at the start of its journey as we expand our product range and work towards strengthening our presence in the European market.”
Currently, Sany’s product range in the UK consists of telescopic crawler cranes spanning 60-80 tonnes with tw new larger models coming next year, and a range of lattice boom cranes covering the 60-480-tonne range.
