Wolffkran to offer Ascorel equipment in Switzerland
By Alex Dahm23 August 2023
Long established and internationally recognised tower crane manufacturer Wolffkran and collision avoidance technology specialist Ascorel have agreed a distribution deal.
Ascorel from France will supply its tower crane collision avoidance technology systems to Wolffkran Schweiz AG for use in the Swiss market. Wolffkran will be an agent for the supply and sale of Ascorel products. It will be able to use the systems on any of its own cranes or supply them as aftermarket kits for other makes of tower crane.
Ascorel, based in Pont-Eveque, has already been working with Wolffkran for several years. Together with the Wolffkran engineering department it developed a collision avoidance system available from Wolff around the world.
The distribution agreement was signed in Elsau by Wolffkran Schweiz AG managing director, Ralph Michael Stump, and Rodolphe Roche, Ascorel export sales and business development manager.
Ascorel’s MC603 system meets the new European Standard EN-17076, which now involves Switzerland. The initial deal was to supply 100 units of this system to Wolffkran. “It is the result of a major common project that promises an outstanding partnership for the future,” commented Rodolphe Roche.
