Vanson has sold its rental fleet and will concentrate on tower crane sales


Vanson started out as a tower crane rental company in 1981 and then later on began to sell used cranes. It took on the Raimondi tower crane product line as early as 1982 and marketed the product in the UK under the Raivan name.

Since then sales have gradually played an increasingly important role. It is still the Raimondi distributor for the UK and also handles Vicario self erecting tower cranes.

This latest move completes the company’s gradual transition from a rental business to a pure sales company.
