In addition, a liquified gas distributor has placed an order for a value of €1.7 million for Hiab X-HiDuo 072 and Hiab X-HiDuo 082 loader cranes from the light range.

“Bulky, hazardous and essential items alike can be delivered safely and efficiently with Hiab’s equipment.

“We are very pleased that the largest names in their industries have chosen Hiab,” said Jani Koskinen, Hiab senior manager strategic accounts.

Hiab will expand its manufacturing to the USA with a second production facility in Streetsboro, Ohio, and increase its production capacity in Dundalk, Ireland, too, where the company has planned a new multi-assembly unit.

“With the increased demand for our truck mounted forklift products in the US, we are excited to start manufacturing in Ohio.

“This will allow us to provide reduced lead times to our customers, additional capacity for growth, and reduce CO2 emissions associated with transportation,” said James Oreck, vice president of sales and services, North Americas, Hiab.
