Cargotec subsidiary Hiab has announced the opening of their new factory installation and center for competence in the Dutch city of Meppel, the company stated that the new facility will open before the end of the first quarter of 2018.

The facility when fully operational will provide FrameWorks subframes, truck bodies and complete vehicle solutions for clients based throughout their European network. The facility will also perform as their global competence center for the distribution of Hiab FrameWorks kits and Hiab FrameWorks installations.

Hiab Heavy Range Loader Cranes Director, Marcel Boxem said, “In 2016 we introduced to the market the HIAB FrameWorks, a modular system that provides the customer with a pre-manufactured, ready-to-install subframe that matches the chosen truck. When developing the FrameWorks concept, we wanted to pay special attention to the overall quality and safety of installations, reduce the installation time and have the products ready for our customers’ use more quickly. At the beginning, this new concept was available for our heavy range loader cranes, but we have broadened the offering with solutions for the Hiab medium and light range of cranes as well as options for the LOGLIFT and JONSERED forestry and recycling and also for MULTILIFT demountables.”

Senior Vice President Loader Cranes for Hiab, Joakim Andersson said, “With the new factory installation centre, we offer quick and reliable complete solutions with the best possible performance from the equipment. The centre will also share expertise in FrameWorks installations with our partners and our own installation shops.”
