Hewden sells tower cranes

One of the UK's largest tower crane businesses, Hewden Tower Cranes has been sold to PC Harrington for an undisclosed sum.

Hewden said that P C Harrington will relocated the tower cranes business from Castleford to Sheffield with all employees retained. PC Harrington will now be MAN Wolffkran's sole dealer in the UK and Ireland.

"Hewden and P C Harrington have worked well together for several years. Both Hewden and MAN Wolffkran have been impressed with P C Harrington's plans to grow and develop the Tower Cranes business. Hewden Management is convinced that the acquisition by P C Harrington is the best option for the future of the Tower Cranes business" said a spokesperson for Hewden Stuart.

Hewden Stuart added its thanks to "the loyal, hard-working employees of the Tower Cranes business for their contribution and support during these negotiations" and predicted that "the transferring employees' prospects are positively exciting".

* Hewden's mobile crane business remains unaffected by the deal.
