Francois Smith of Concord Cranes said: “The Terex TRT 35 was selected for its compact size and manoeuvrability, which is needed to access confined spaces on port jetties. The crane is used extensively in the food industry which requires accuracy, high safety standards, speed, and reliability—which the Terex TRT35 provides with ease.”

Terex RT sales manager, Guillaume Bertrand added “Goscor Access Solutions are already proving themselves as the best partner we could work with in South Africa. The region is a critical market for us and not only do Goscor Access Solutions have a very good knowledge of the lifting industry, they also have a huge footprint in the countries they are responsible for, with a strong focus on service”.
