Grove’s RT540CE is the latest rough-terrain crane to roll off the production line at Manitowoc Crane Group’s facility in Niella Tanaro, Italy. The production line began operation in 2005, having been built next to an existing Potain tower crane facility. It was manufactured for southern Europe, where demand for Grove RTs was growing steadily, particularly from those in the Italian market at that point in time.
