New 100 tonne Tadano for PTK
By Niamh Marriott12 October 2021
Thai crane rental company PTK Crane Center has taken delivery of a Tadano rough terrain GR-1000EX-4 crane.
PTK Crane currently rents cranes to a variety of customers and contractors, including many who are working on renovations and expansion for the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok, a major national project costing 12 billion Thai baht ($360 million), due to be completed in September 2022.
The crane was chosen for its use in confined spaces.
“This high-quality crane is suitable for working in limited space and rough areas,” said a PTK representative.
Two GR-1000EX-4 cranes were purchased from Tadano, the first was delivered in February 2021 and the second unit in October.
“We understand that the assembling time for the unit is a few months, but it is okay to wait. We believe in the Tadano brand and its great quality; that is the reason why we bought two units.”
PTK Crane also acquired two additional GT-750ER truck cranes to add to the two already in its fleet from Tadano Italthai Co.
Tadano Italthai was formed as a Thai-Japanese joint venture between Tadano and long-time Thai distribution partner Italthai Industrial in 2017.
