Konecranes acquires Whiting Corporation crane businesses26 April 2023
Konecranes has acquired the industrial and nuclear crane and crane service operations of privately held Whiting Corporation.
Konecranes said the move would strengthen “its presence in the strategically important North American market” and will give it access to a large installed base of Whiting’s cranes, plus access to new customers and growth opportunities for Konecranes’ Industrial Service and Equipment business area.
For more than a century, Whiting has served a variety of customers including steel mills, automotive plants, fossil fuel plants, metal service centres, and hydro-electric and nuclear power plants. It has some 130 employees in seven locations.
“We welcome this talented group of Whiting colleagues to Konecranes and look forward to driving together our new and exciting growth opportunities,” said Bernie D'Ambrosi, SVP Americas for Industrial Service and Equipment at Konecranes.
