Demag Cranes has established an International Dry Bulk Competence Centre, further expanding its activities in this sector. The centre is located in Banbury and offers customers a complete bulk-handling product family, ranging from mobile harbour cranes, portal harbour cranes and floating cranes to hoppers, conveyors, grabs and drive components. The centre also provides customers with state-of-the-art software tailored to bulk handling applications, expert consultancy services and service packages provided by qualified professionals.
The International Dry Bulk Competence Centre is headed by Mark Reardon and serves bulk terminals seeking to expand or upgrade their facilities or material flows. Demag Cranes offers an innovative and reliable one-stop-shop approach.
“Many terminals are currently sourcing equipment from a disparate range of suppliers, configuring their own systems using different elements”, explains Mark Reardon. “Under the name of our leading brand, Gottwald Port Technology, together with our software specialist subsidiary, DBIS, and a proven network of partners, we are ideally placed to provide optimum solutions from a single source.”
The Competence Centre demonstrates a major commitment by Demag Cranes in the development of its long term bulk handling strategy, positioning Gottwald as a leading brand in this rapidly expanding Market.
“Dry bulk is the largest seaborne commodity, driven by increasing demand for energy and food, resulting from continuing growth in global population”, says Giuseppe Di Lisa, Senior Vice President Port & Intermodal Cranes. “Our Dry Bulk Competence Centre will help terminals to master the challenges triggered by this growth, quickly and sustainably.”
The Demag Cranes Group is one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial cranes and crane components, harbour cranes and terminal automation technology. Services, in particular maintenance and refurbishment, are another key element of the Group’s business activities. The Group is divided into the business segments Industrial Cranes, Port Technology and Services and has strong and well-established Demag and Gottwald brands. Demag Cranes sees its core competence in the development and construction of technically sophisticated cranes and hoists as well as automated transport and logistics systems in ports and terminals, the provision of services for these products and the manufacture of high-quality components.
