An international jury granted the award to the Wetter/Ruhr production location for excellent production management, Demag said.

“As a world market leader for high-quality industrial cranes and components, we want to help our customers to achieve a significant lead in efficiency and quality with our products.

“This award confirms that we have top-quality production at our manufacturing location in Wetter and that we meet the market’s demanding requirements with our performance and flexibility.”

The management board had previously acknowledged its commitment to the production location in Wetter and has approved investments of €14m for modernisation of the production infrastructure in recent years.
