NEWS 4-5 Italian company Danieli Centro Cranes and GH have signed a commercial and technological co-operation deal for the next years. The deal includes GH’s commitment to provide the italian company with new generation hoists with a capacity of up to 12,5 t, as well as a series of technical modifications and customizations of the hoists, so that they fit in the Italian company’s corporative image. Always innovating Committed to our customers and collaborators, here we present the 14th issue of GH NEWS, which has already become a classic for all of us. José A. Guerra Altuna MANAGING DIRECTOR Danieli is one of the biggest companies in the world devoted to the production of rolling mills for the iron and steel industry. The agreement arrives after months of negotiations between the two companies. Danieli chose GH as provider of its new set of hoists (recently launched into the market) after an exhaustive study of alternative producers of lifting equipment. The provisions and high technological content of GH’s hoist finally made the Italian giant opt for GH. I’d like to highlight that in this issue we will present a very important deal with the Italian company Danieli Centro Cranes, which has chosen our products as the most advanced and competitive among the wide range of options present in the market. This deal has been signed with a long-term perspective and its peculiarities are a firm commitment for both companies. It is a great satisfaction for us because it is a recognition of our technology and innovation policy. We are adapting with utmost speed to the new technological challenges. Among them, our new website, with which we want to respond to a new concept of business: we have a good product, but we also want to have a nice relationship with the world. In a difficult global economical context, where no recovery is in sight in the short term, we have found ourselves in a situation where a key decision was to be made, and we have chosen the safest way to success: INNOVATION in everything we do. Another section of this issue that you have in your hands will deal with the projects GH has undertaken in the last months all over the world. That is, in fact, our best presentation: “A global partner you can trust anywhere in the world” We have sent George, our already famous “international observer”, on a tour to Mexico where he will find out about some of our projects there. Not only has our Mexican subsidiary achieved an important presence in the Mexican market, but it also has celebrated its fifteen anniversary since we began operating in that Latin American nation. Our take-off in India has enabled us to make our first steps and the future looks promising. Our implementation in Peru is also a commitment to be present in that part of the world which, despite being geographically distant, is very close to us both in social and cultural terms. And these are just two examples. We also want to present the first results of our “ASTEBATEAN” initiative, “express manufacturing”, which allows us to have our equipment ready to be delivered anywhere in the world in just one week. And I wouldn’t want to finish without a special and affectionate mention to Juan Miguel Ayestaran, our Techical Office Director, who will be retiring at the end of this year after 45 years of work and commitment to the company.
