Alfredo Canibano Ramos of Konecranes said: “We celebrated the 2,000th Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane when we delivered it to Ership in 2019. And now they opted for the best performing crane from us to increase their handling rates. This underlines the strength of our relationship and their trust in the quality of our equipment."

Chief executve of Ership, Gonzalo Alvargonzález added: “We urgently needed a new crane in Gijón to support growing demand, Konecranes was able to deliver the ESP.9B in very short time. This is another reason why we’ve used Konecranes for over 25 years and currently have more than 20 in our fleet.”

Based in Madrid, Ership was established in 1989 from the merger of Transporte, Aduanas y Consignaciones founded in 1927 in Barcelona, and Auxiliar de Transportes Marítimos founded in 1957 in Madrid.
