The first 90 tonne Grove GRT8100 Rough Terrain crane manufactured outside of the USA has been completed and shipped last week.

Jens Ennen, senior vice president for mobile cranes in Europe and Africa said: “We are confident that our customers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific will benefit greatly from this decision. Benefits will include shorter lead times, lower shipping costs and preferential import duties in certain countries that recognise the EUR1 certificate of origin, with the specifications and quality level being as high as the rough terrain cranes manufactured in Shady Grove.”
