As expected, the summer of 2015 has brought E-Crane more service calls than ever before. Many customers took the opportunity to service their E-Cranes during the summer holidays to make sure that their equipment is ready for another busy season. All of our service engineers have been extremely flexible to make the impossible possible. In this context, E-Crane is rapidly expanding its servicing capabilities both in terms of service engineers and parts availability.

Our sales engineers have been busy also. When looking at the current order volume, E-Crane is extremely proud to see so many repeat customers. 5 (five!) orders from returning customers have been confirmed in the past month. Proof of the pudding is in the tasting! These repeat E-Crane customers have a special place in our heart. They make our business more robust as they give our business a tremendous boost in terms of reputation.

 Grain Handling Equipment Reaping
the Rewards of High Quality
More E-Cranes Handling Grain in South America

For the past few years, more and more E-Cranes are popping up in South America to handle grain. A few months ago, we discussed a several E-Crane installations taking place in 2014 and 2015. All of these machines are successfully up and running, and a new E-Crane installation is set to take place in the Fall of 2015.

The E-Crane is ideal for bulk handling applications that require heavy-duty production cycles and has proven to be a top solution for grain handling operations involving barge unloading, ship loading, and midstream transfer.
