Manitowoc has recognized its longest-serving distribution partner for Potain tower cranes at Intermat Paris 2018. Luxembourg dealer ELWE has been selling Potain cranes for 66 years, having begun its partnership with the French crane brand in 1952.
ELWE was presented the award during a ceremony at the Manitowoc booth. Company chairman René Weidig was there to receive the award from Manitowoc executive vice president Aaron Ravenscroft.
“It’s heartening to see that Potain is still ahead of the competition in Europe. We will do everything we can to ensure this continues in Luxembourg. Our partnership is as strong as ever,” said Weidig.
ELWE still has a copy of the contract that Faustin Potain signed when they established the partnership.
