GH joins the Crane Manufacturers Association of America (CMAA) as a full member

GH INGRESA COMO MIEMBRO DE PLENO DERECHO EN LA ASOCIACIÓN AMERICANA DE FABRICANTES DE GRÚAS (CMAA).

El mes de octubre recibimos la comunicación oficial del ingreso de GH como miembro de la Asociación Americana de Fabricantes de Grúas (CMAA).

Esta noticia es un importante impulso para nuestra marca porque supone ser reconocidos por esta Asociación como un fabricante de pleno derecho con capacidad para obtener información sobre el sector, poder influir en la regulación del mismo y, por supuesto, aportar nuestra experiencia en la configuración de la política de seguridad, control y elaboración de las normas que regulan al mundo de la elevación.

Pertenecer a la CMAA no es solo un impulso a nuestra marca en el mercado americano. Es un reconocimiento que supone un fuerte estímulo para nuestra expansión internacional.

Ahora no solo podremos participar en el “Club de la elevación”, también deberemos tener una actitud proactiva para que nuestras ideas se vayan introduciendo en esta Asociación, y eso deberá requerir un importante trabajo de personas de la organización de GH que cubren las áreas de trabajo de la CMAA como:

  • Ingeniería Mecánica (componentes)
  • Ingeniería Estructural (vigas, columnas y caminos de rodadura)
  • Ingeniería Eléctrica
  • Servicie
  • Marketing / Administración.

Si tuviéramos que hacer un símil deportivo para ilustrar este gran paso en nuestra presencia en el mercado americano, podríamos decir que ahora que hemos ascendido a Primera división, deberemos luchar para estar en los puestos cabeceros.

IN THE PREMIUM EQUIPMENT MARKET, NOBODY GIVES SO MUCH FOR SO LITTLE

For us, our market is the world, but we must not forget that GH’s plans for international implementation are strategic.

José Antonio Astigarraga, director of the Crane Components Business Unit, offers us his unique view on the management of this core part of GH’s business.

The main challenges we face are, in this order: innovation, to make GH a leader in innovation within the PREMIUM market, adding more value to the product and maintaining a competitive price level.

Second, to offer the market a product range that is as complete and broad as possible.
We need to be able to provide global lifting solutions, from lightweight cranes and chain hoists to high capacity cable hoists.

Third, customer satisfaction: Building the loyalty of our customers and those of our distributors through a product and service that meets their demands and expectations.

Also, providing our distributors and subsidiaries, our real “travel companions”, with the tools and arguments necessary for them to develop their businesses in their respective markets. In this way, we promote a WIN-WIN situation which benefits all.

And, finally, to create a sense of belonging within the Business Unit (BU), share the objectives and assess the performance of the people who make up the unit.

The equipment that makes up the current GH range is of the very highest technological level. We can compete with multinationals with far greater resources on an equal footing and come through with flying colours.

I would like to highlight some differentiators:

  • Standard variable-frequency drive for lifting up to GHE17 (released soon).
  • Hoists with the best drive system in the market.
  • Bolt load cell and special lifting cables as standard.
  • COREBOX as standard in the very near future.

WE MUST CAREFULLY SELECT THE BEST QUALITY MACHINERY PROVIDERS FOR OUR PROJECTS

In LGH they manufacture high quality cranes and also give a good post-sale service with a good level of safety and safe systems for operations.

GH has been present in Thailand for more than 20 years through its local partner Peera Laohakarniyom, with whom it has carried out all its activity in the country in a very satisfactory way.

As a result of this collaboration, seven years ago Peera and GH decided to increase their level of collaboration and set up the LGH joint venture, to make complete cranes for the Thai market.

In this new phase, GH is achieving great penetration through key customers within the Thai market that demand the high standards of quality and competitiveness of both Peera and GH.

One of these companies, Sino Thai Engineering and Construction Public Company Limited (STECON), has been a key GH customer in the past and more recently has ordered a total of seven gantry cranes, one of them (160 tonnes) having made a name for itself as the largest gantry crane installed in the country.

To get to know this customer better and find out about the company’s impressions, we have interviewed Senior Engineer Paruehat Gonbang who has been the contact within the company.
