Venezuela uses Austrian lifting solutions for commercial vehicles

Austria’s top-performing crane manufacturer enjoys success in Venezuela and Latin America

PALFINGER cranes are used in Venezuela in the construction of social and private housing, in the petroleum industry and in the municipal sector.

PALFINGER stands for the most innovative, most reliable and most-cost-effective lifting solutions for commercial vehicles and the maritime segment. PALFINGER boasts expertise in the marine segment and in the fields of access platforms, tail lifts, hooklifts, passenger lifts, timber cranes and railway systems.

PALFINGER’s strategy of investing in local value creation has paid off. As in other countries, the company has worked together successfully for many years in Venezuela with a proficient local assembly and service partner, enabling provision of a standard guarantee of 12 months and a guarantee of up to three years for structural elements. Maquinarias Mega’s dense service network, with four distribution and service centres in Venezuela, ensures proximity to customers and the operational capability of PALFINGER cranes.

Despite the difficult economic circumstances, the company has recorded impressive sales in recent years. Social and private housing, the oil industry and the municipal sector are important customers in the country. Recovery of the price of oil will boost the Venezuelan economy, benefiting the construction industry in particular.

New economic growth in Venezuela will translate directly to greater demand for new construction machinery and cranes. True to the slogan that PALFINGER solutions are indispensable for construction, the outlook for the company on the Venezuelan market is highly promising.
