New Nordic dealers for Unic

Unic Cranes Europe has appointed ANK Cranes as its distributor for Norway and Sweden.

ANK Cranes operates from two locations, one in Rælingen, Norway near Oslo and one in Billdal, Sweden on the edge of Gothenburg. The company was set up last year by Anders Kiel and Thor Nordahl in Norway and Martin Andersson in Sweden to distribute HSC Cranes (Sumitomo Heavy Industries Construction Cranes) lattice boom crawler cranes.

All three had previously worked with the Tadano and previous Unic distributors Arnab Kran & Lift in Sweden and Knutsen Maskin in Norway - see:Unic Cranes appoints Scandinavian dealers.

Anders Kiel started out as a technician with Arnab Kran & Lift in 2010, moving to Knutsen Maskin in 2014 as sales administrator and representative. Thor Nordahl has 33 years’ industry experience with Knutsen Maskin having started out as a technician moving up to become managing director and a shareholder. Martin Andersson spent 15 years with Arnab Kran & Lift working in positions ranging from sales to managing director.
