Spider, mini crawler and pick & carry crane manufacturer Jekko has appointed Kogler Krantechnik as its ‘official dealer’ for Austria.
Based in Maria Saal south east of Graz, Kogler’s main business is the sale and service of Fassi and Cranab loader cranes. The company was established in 1971 by Gottfried Kogler to distribute Penz loader cranes. In 1990 Werner Kogler too over and began expanding the service side of the business and was appointed as the Fassi dealer the following year. The business was acquired by AZZ Holding in 2014 and has continued to grow in the years since then.
Jekko sales director Alberto Franceschini said: “Kogler is popular in Austria for being customer oriented, for their wise sales advice and for the top-tier after sale service supplied by technicians specialized in the lifting equipment world. Working with this company has therefore been a simple and obvious choice since Kogler shares all the crucial aspects of Jekko’s philosophy in supplying the customers with the best all-round working experience, from the purchase of a mini crane, through its on-site use, to the after sales service.
“In addition, Jekko Deutschland, a company owned by Jekko, will set up a solid collaboration with Kogler in order to promote exchanges and relationships in different markets that share the same language and the same needs.”
Kogler sales director Ewald Rescher added: “For over 50 years we’ve been trying our best to meet our customers’ needs for loader crane. On-site requirements have changed and evolved over time, and special applications have increasingly emerged that underline the limits of loader cranes in terms of accessibility, flexibility and transportability. Jekko produces equipment that satisfies all these demands and offers a wide range of products to perform all these difficult tasks. We’re very proud to be part of the Jekko dealers’ network and feel confident that together we’ll capture the Austrian mini crane market.”
