Hiab, part of Cargotec, will supply MV Commercial in the UK with 100 light, medium and heavy range HIAB loader cranes equipped with HiConnect™, according to the company's release. The deal is worth over EUR 5.7 million including installation for 60 cranes and has been booked in the 1st quarter of 2021.
MV Commercial provides sales and leasing for commercial vehicles, and has become one of the biggest national suppliers of specialist loader cranes. Founded in 2001, last year the business was named the UK Independent Dealer of the Year 2020.
