60 AÑOS Y 112.000 GRÚAS DESPUÉS

Hemos hecho de la flexibilidad una de nuestras principales señas de identidad y de la innovación, una inquietud constante.

El mes de septiembre de 1958 se produce el inicio oficial de las actividades de GH como proyecto empresarial impulsado por cuatro hermanos emprendedores, audaces y conscientes de que solo con su iniciativa podrían construir su propio futuro.

60 años y 112.000 grúas después, el espíritu de aquellos pioneros sigue plenamente vigente, aunque el perfil del proyecto ha cambiado sustancialmente exigido por los tiempos y por las nuevas necesidades de los clientes y mercados.

GH es hoy una referencia en el mundo de la elevación con una amplia gama de soluciones para muchos sectores de la economía global que demandan nuestras grúas para ser más competitivos y eficaces.

Enfrentando cada proyecto como un nuevo reto, reconociendo con humildad nuestras capacidades y limitaciones, hoy GH es una empresa con presencia multinacional en los principales mercados del mundo para dar respuestas a todos nuestros clientes. Hemos hecho de la flexibilidad una de nuestras principales señas de identidad y de la innovación una inquietud constante para ir por delante de las elementales demandas de quienes deciden otorgarnos su confianza.

GH es un proyecto en crecimiento, con un perfil independiente y con un grupo de personas que comparten el ideario con el que nacimos hace 60 años: honestidad, fidelidad con los compromisos asumidos y una profunda vocación de servicio.

Hemos demostrado a lo largo de estos años que tenemos un hueco importante que ocupamos en un sector altamente competitivo, dominado por grandes empresas con acceso a ingentes recursos y a los que enfrentamos con profesionalidad con nuestros productos y servicios.

Hemos cumplido sesenta años, pensando en cumplir sesenta más permaneciendo fieles a nuestro ideario y a las señas de identidad que nos hacen diferentes a todos los demás.

Miramos al pasado para ser conscientes del camino realizado y de los retos superados. Estamos orgullosos. Pero nuestra mirada nos sirve además para tomar el impulso necesario para proyectarnos al futuro.

60 YEARS AND 112,000 CRANES LATER

We have made flexibility one of our main hallmarks and innovation, a constant concern.

September 1958 saw the oficial beginning of the GH’s business activities as a project promoted by four enterprising brothers who were both audacious and confident that, with their initiative alone, they would be capable of constructing their future.

Sixty years and 112,000 cranes later, the spirit of those pioneers is as strong as ever in the company, although the profile of the project has changed substantially, as demanded by the times and new customer and market needs.

Today, GH is a leader in the world of lifting, with a wide range of solutions for many sectors of the global economy that demand our cranes in order to be more competitive and efficient.

Treating each project as a new challenge while recognising our capacities and limitations with humility, today GH is a company with a multinational presence in the main markets of the world – something which allows us to adequately respond to the needs of all of our customers. We have made flexibility one of our main hallmarks and, for us, innovation is a constant concern so as to stay ahead of the basic requirements of the customers who decide to put their trust in us.

GH is a growing project, with an independent profile and with a group of people who share in the ideology with which we started out 60 years ago: honesty, reliability in fulfilling the commitments we take on and unwavering dedication to service.

Throughout these years, we have shown that we occupy an important position in a highly competitive sector dominated by large companies with access to vast resources and with which we compete in a professional way with our products and services.

We are celebrating sixty years as a company and planning to go on for at least another sixty, remaining faithful to an ideology and identity that make us different from the rest.

We look back over the past to remember the path we have taken and the challenges we have overcome. We are proud. And we draw on the past to learn and to gain the necessary strength with which to project ourselves into the future.

Locomotive loading and lifting tests with two new gantry cranes for Stadler Valencia

WHEN THE JOB DOESN’T END WITH THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS

Locomotive loading and lifting tests with two new gantry cranes for Stadler Valencia.

This company, located in the Valencian town of Albuixech, has an important presence in the Spanish market, as well as numerous international contracts.

A specialist in the design and manufacture of locomotives, as well as urban and regional trains, Stadler Valencia employs 900 professional staff, of whom almost 200 are dedicated to the innovation and design of railway vehicles.

Since Miguel Devís Pérez and José Noguera Chuliá created Talleres Devís y Noguera in December 1897, what is now the Stadler plant has evolved to become one of the leaders in the design and manufacture of rolling stock in Spain.

The company remained at the forefront when it began to build trams and electric and steam locomotives more than a century ago, incorporating diesel models from 1959 onwards. During the 1960s and 1970s, the company sold 300 locomotives to Renfe and another 300 were sold on the international market, which meant the growth and consolidation of the company as one of the major European railway manufacturers. During the years in which it has been operating, the company has sold more than 2,000 vehicles in 18 countries.

Stadler has been present in Spain –in Valencia– since 1 January 2016. That day, Stadler bought the Vossloh Spanish locomotive business and thus added to its ranks a company that perfectly completed the Stadler Rail product portfolio, also offering access to new markets. The facilities in Valencia, with an area of ​​200,000 m2, include offices, production plants, storage areas and vehicle inspection and testing areas.

At the event to commemorate the 120th anniversary, celebrated in December 2017, Íñigo Parra, president of Stadler Rail Valencia, insisted that “This plant has become one of the great industry leaders in Spain, where we have been able to add value to our products through the continuous investment we make in innovation and design.”

The company has recently been awarded various locomotive contracts both in Europe and in South America, as well as light rail/tram contracts for different European regions – including the modernisation of Alicante’s Line 9, which connects Benidorm and Denia. To meet the demand for production, Stadler Valencia asked GH Cranes for two new gantry cranes, which have been installed outside the Albuixech warehouse.

Locomotive loading and hoisting tests have recently been carried out on these gantry cranes with a span of 5.1 m, equipped with hoists with a capacity of 2×40 t, which can work in either an independent or synchronised way.

Here at GH Cranes, we are comprehensive manufacturers of all our products; however, our work does not stop with the mere manufacture of cranes and hoists. Our work begins with the initial proposal and ends with the maintenance and spare parts service; and it includes engineering, manufacturing, transport, assembly and commissioning of the manufactured products.
