Innovation in crane service and maintenance, I

When a company wants to be global (that is, when they want to act in the world’s most important markets) and, more importantly, when it is an integral manufacturer (it produces all the elements that form the hoist, including the motors), then service becomes growth capital for companies in the lifting sector.

When these conditions are met, control over the product is total because the company does not depend on third parties and it makes actuations with customers swifter and more efficient, so the customers will see that their productivity is not only safe, but growing thanks to all the innovations that the manufacturer proposes.

The experience of a company like GH, a global, integral manufacturer with more than 55 years’ experience, has made us develop our own innovation policy in the field of services, an area where the connection between technology and people is essential.

Our innovation philosophy in the area of services is based on the following parameters:
