Manitowoc has pledged its support to help the reconstruction efforts of the Notre Dame de Paris, after it caught fire earlier in April.
Firefighters were unable to save the 90-metre spire on the historic structure, which suffered significant damage from the blaze.
Potain, Mantowoc’s manufacturer of tower cranes, has pledged to assist the reconstruction efforts of the French Cathedral.
It will provide tower cranes and related services free of charge. The terms of the offer have been officially presented to the authorities.

“It seemed natural to us that Potain, our tower crane brand that for more than 90 years has been involved in the construction of the most emblematic works of French architecture, is committed to rebuilding Notre Dame de Paris,” Manitowoc president and CEO Barry Pennypacker said.
“Our cranes and technical expertise will be there to meet the challenge of a rapid reconstruction of the cathedral.”
