Düsseldorf,   28. March 2012

  • Supply of 28 crane installations to serve press lines
  • Sustainable partnership with customers

Demag Cranes has further consolidated its position as a partner of the automotive industry. The company received an order from BMW to supply a total of 28 crane installations to serve press lines at its locations in Leipzig, Regensburg and Dingolfing. The order includes 23 process cranes with lifting capacities of up to 55 tonnes, two semi-portal cranes, one full portal crane and two standard cranes.

 With the order, BMW and Demag Cranes are continuing a proven, long-standing partnership. For decades the company has already been working with technology from Demag Cranes in production. Dr. Lars Brzoska, Executive Vice President of Industrial Cranes and Member of the Executive Committee at Demag Cranes, sees the order as a result of a consistent commitment to the customer, including services as well as products: “We focus on sustainability in our customer relationships. Accordingly, every day we endeavour to convince our customers of our efficiency and capability. We are pleased that BMW is continuing to count on us for this exciting project, too.”
This order is the second major project with BMW within only four years. Initially in 2008, nine process crane installations were delivered to Leipzig, Regensburg and Dingolfing.
