August 3, 2023 | Lucia Reinsprecht

With a total of 491 mobile cranes that reach a combined hook height of precisely 33,296 metres, Felbermayr is in 1st place in the “Mobile cranes” category in the “Kran & Bühne” trade magazine. Among the companies evaluated, Felbermayr also has the widest range of crawler-driven cranes.

In the new issue of the “Kran & Bühne” trade magazine published by the German Vertikal Verlag publishing house, the editors evaluated the range and offering of work platform and crane hire companies in the German-speaking region in the “Work platforms”, “Mobile and crawler cranes”, “Tower cranes” and “Telehandlers” categories. With a total of 491 mobile cranes, Felbermayr was indisputably in 1st place in the “Mobile cranes” category and therefore top of the top 20 list.

Felbermayr was also top of the pile in the “Largest renter of crawler cranes” category. Based on figures from 2022, Felbermayr had 32 chain-based cranes and therefore not just the widest range in figures but, with a lifting force of 1,000 tonnes, also one of the strongest offerings of the companies ranked.

In the “Work platforms” and “Largest renter of scissors platforms”, Felbermayr fought off very strong competition to reach 8th and 6th place respectively and therefore also made the top 10. With a 70 percent proportion of electric and hybrid work platforms, Felbermayr is also one of the top 10 providers here. Felbermayr is therefore also showing that it is at the forefront of future-oriented developments.

Managing director of Felbermayr Transport- und Hebetechnik, Peter Stöttinger, is delighted with our top positions on the lists. However, he finds continuous growth more important than being top of a list: “In order to be able to offer our customers the quality that they expect from us, it is particularly important to us that we are on a solid economic footing.”

In his opinion, the special feature of Felbermayr’s offering is the excellent quality of service that is widespread geographically: “From the Black Sea to the North Sea, Felbermayr stands for quality in all service areas”.

Felbermayr will continue to grow solidly in the future without losing the values of a family-owned company, says Stöttinger.
