Hiab Invests For A New Installation Centre In Meppel, The Netherlands | 20 Feb 2018

Hiab, part of Cargotec, is opening a new factory installation and competence centre in Meppel, the Netherlands, during the first quarter of 2018. The new centre will offer FrameWorksTM subframes, truck bodies and complete vehicle solutions for Hiab’s European customer base. It is the global competence centre for Hiab FrameWorks installations as well as the distribution centre for Hiab FrameWorks kits.

“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,” says Marcel Boxem, Director, Heavy Range Loader Cranes, Hiab.

The new installation centre provides the customers with fully calculated, designed and tested installations as well as a high level of quality and safety due to the very controlled installation process with experienced Hiab professionals. “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,” says Joakim Andersson, Senior Vice President, Loader Cranes, Hiab.
