Kranpunkten moves north

Swedish access rental company Kranpunkten is moving into Northern Sweden with the opening of a new branch in Luleå, in the far north east of the country.

The new branch, the company’s ninth, will open in April, as “sustainability focused operation” to serve the growing number of new Green Economy projects in northern Sweden, which include significant investments in the construction and renovation of facilities for fossil free production. As the company puts it “Kranpunkten aims to contribute to the transition journey happening up north.”
Kranpunkten also runs an increasing number of electric delivery trucks

Therefore, in April, Kranpunkten will open its ninth depot in the city extending its network from Malmö in the south all the way to the border with Finland, with three branches in Gothenburg and two in Stockholm. Its network currently only reaches as far north as Uppsala – just north of Stockholm in central Sweden.

Northern regional manager Thomas Eriksson said: "We have been following the development in the northern market for many years and seen that there is room for a niche player like us. With the market's focus on sustainable development, we are well-positioned for expansion northwards."
