“The acquisition of Ausió is strategically a very important step for Konecranes,” says Pekka Päkkilä, President, Standard Lifting at Konecranes. “Earlier this year, Konecranes acquired the Spanish company Eydimen 2000 S.L. These two companies together give us excellent access to two of the most important EOT crane and service markets in Spain – Catalonia and the Basque region.”

Following this acquisition Konecranes will be able to market its entire product portfolio in Spain. Until now, Konecranes has been active in Spanish ports. Eydimen has marketed Konecranes CXT industrial cranes and components in the country.

The company said that the acquisition of Ausió complements our marketing network and gives it opportunity to introduce Konecranes process cranes to the Spanish market. Konecranes also said that the service business has much growth potential in the country.
