- Prefabricated constructions specialist Pekabex has purchased its first mobile crane – an LTM 1160-5.2
- Pekabex is a leading manufacturer of prefabricated constructions and concrete components as well as a general contractor for construction investments
- LTM 1160-5.2 combines efficiency and power
“This is our company’s very first mobile crane. We have never had this type of machine before”, says Grzegorz Dużyński. He is Head of the Assembly Department at Polish prefabricated constructions specialist Pekabex. The group has had a Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 available to it since the start of May 2021. Pekabex is one of the leading manufacturers of prefabricated constructions and concrete components in Poland.
Grzegorz Dużyński explains: “What mainly convinced us was the reliability of Liebherr machines and the company’s service, which is at the highest level. Liebherr’s quality standard and experience are the same foundations as those on which our company is based.”
LTM 1160-5.2 combines power and efficiency
The Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 mobile crane features high lifting capacities, great economy and versatility. Thanks to Liebherr’s innovative VarioBase® and VarioBallast® systems, the crane can adjust its outriggers and its ballast radius to suit specific site situations. These smart systems deliver higher lifting capacities as well as maximum safety even when the crane is used in constricted conditions. “We were looking for a crane with a 180 tonne capacity, which can reach sites with difficult access”, says Grzegorz Dużyński. “The LTM 1160-5.2 will make things a great deal easier for us. We often have to work on constricted sites with very heavy, large modules.”
The Pekabex Group has been active on the Polish and other markets for 49 years. Pekabex currently manufactures around 230,000 cubic metres of prefabricated prestressed and reinforced concrete components at five factories in Poland and one in Germany. These include ceiling beams, roof trusses, walls, hollow chamber panels, slabs and supports.
“We need a reliable machine which can manage the challenges posed by the growing number of homes we are building in Poland”, says Grzegorz Dużyński. “The crane will also move between sites and be used both to build residential units and industrial buildings.” The group plans to make further investments and increase its presence on the European market.
The Pekabex Group has over 2000 employees and supplies solutions for the design, production, delivery and assembly of structures. The company also acts as a lead contractor for construction projects which involve prefabricated reinforced concrete components. Pekabex tackles construction projects of all types, such as industrial buildings, residential and office buildings, infrastructure projects and a very wide range of special projects.
