In some cases, its products are manufactured for the company or distributed for the company under strategic alliances. The company’s crane products are used in various applications worldwide, including energy production/distribution and utilities; petrochemical and industrial projects; infrastructure applications, such as road, bridge and airport construction; and commercial and residential construction. Majority of the company’s customers purchase one or more cranes together with various attachments to permit use of the crane in a range of lifting applications and other operations. Lattice-boom Cranes: Under the Manitowoc brand name, the company designs, manufactures, and distributes lattice-boom crawler cranes. Lattice-boom cranes consist of a lattice-boom, which is a fabricated, high-strength steel structure that has four chords and tubular lacings, mounted on a base, which is either crawler or truck mounted. Lattice-boom cranes weigh less and provide higher lifting capacities than a mobile telescopic crane of similar boom length. The lattice-boom cranes are the category of crane that could pick and move simultaneously with a full-rated load. The lattice-boom sections, together with the crane base, are transported to and erected at a project site. The company offers models of lattice-boom cranes with lifting capacities up to 2,500 U.S. tons, which are used to lift material and equipment in various applications and end markets, including heavy construction, bridge and highway, duty cycle and infrastructure and energy-related projects. These cranes are also used by the value-added crane rental industry, which serves all of the end markets. Low-capacity crawler cranes with 150 U.S. ton capacity or less are utilized for general construction and duty-cycle applications. High-capacity crawler cranes with approximately 150 U.S. ton capacity are used to lift materials in various applications and are used in heavy construction, energy-related, stadium construction, petrochemical work, and dockside applications. The company offers 10 low-capacity models and 9 high-capacity models. In 2014, the company introduced the Variable Position Counterweight (VPC) system. The VPC system automatically positions the counterweight, which is suspended above the ground, to fit a required lift by automatically positioning the counterweight based on changes in boom angle and lifted load. The company also offers its lattice-boom crawler crane customers various attachments that provide its cranes with greater capacity in terms of height, movement, and lifting. The company’s principal attachments are MAX-ER attachments, luffing jibs, and RINGER attachments. The MAX-ER is a trailing counterweight, heavy-lift attachment that improves the reach, capacity, and lift dynamics of the basic crane to which it is mounted. Tower Cranes: Under the Potain bra
