MyCrane expands into APAC region
By Lewis Tyler02 June 2022
Dubai-based technology company MyCrane is expanding its franchise as it prepares to release its online crane rental platform in three key Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets.
The company has signed a franchise agreement for markets in Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia, which will be taken by Singapore-based Allan Taylor, a former executive and Mammoet employee.
Once opened, the franchises will make the free to use platform available in the APAC region for the first time.
MyCrane CEO and founder Andrei Geikalo, said, “We are delighted to welcome Allan at a time of great opportunity for those serving the thriving cranes and construction industry in Asia. APAC is often seen as an exciting region for business development – and with good reason.”
Users of MyCrane can enter details of lifting requirements via a web portal, which then allows registered rental companies to respond with a proposal. It also offers engineering support, a selector tool that helps find the right crane and marketplace where users can post equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts, auxiliaries and industry vacancies.
Allan Taylor said, “I am looking forward to helping equipment suppliers in the three countries to increase the utilisation of their fleets, while also working with contractors to help them save time and money on the crane procurement process. I can’t wait to get started with MyCrane and welcome local crane suppliers and contractors to get in touch to learn more about the benefits.”
Geikalo added, “As the world rebuilds following protracted pandemic disruption, countries in APAC are expected to continue their ambitious infrastructure plans in the coming years. MyCrane will be well-placed to serve the local cranes and construction industries when we shortly begin operations in Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia.
“In the meantime we continue to explore ways to roll out our services in other key Asian markets such as China, Malaysia and Vietnam.”
