MECHAN BRINGS INNOVATIVE ITALIAN PLANT TO UK

Leading Sheffield-based manufacturer, Mechan, has signed an exclusive deal to supply unique Italian mini cranes and mould handling equipment to the UK and Irish markets.

Thanks to its partnership with Gruniverpal Tranchero, Mechan is now the sole distributor of the Minidrel S and Transidrel series mould lifters and the Minidrel B, GB and GIA series mini cranes.

Both the mini cranes and mould lifters boast Gruniverpal’s patented kinematic system, which allows the equipment to achieve lifting capacities and reach heights that were previously impossible.

The Gruniverpal mini cranes are widely regarded as some of the best on the market. They feature a combined articulated-telescopic hoisting system for maximum flexibility, whilst their compact construction makes them suitable for access to confined areas. The slewing boom’s 180-degree rotation (left and right) and hydraulic controls ensures precision handling, even in restricted spaces.
