GGR adds to product range

UK based crane and glass handling sales and rental company GGR held a major open day at its premises in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire yesterday, attended by more than 300 people.

The event included some significant new product line announcements, including the likely entry into the powered access market, the addition of larger spider cranes from BG to its product line up, the move to offer larger pick & carry industrial cranes from Galizia, the addition of Faresin diesel powered telehandlers and taking on the dealership for Almac tracked carriers. The following photos will hopefully provide a brief overview of the event.
