Danish company BMS Heavy Cranes A/S added a heavy duty LR 11350 crawler crane to its fleet in April. The Liebherr crane with a maximum load capacity of 1,350 tonnes constitutes a major upwards extension to the family run company's fleet. The new LR 11350 is the largest crane in Scandinavia. In addition to the assembly of large wind turbines, it will be used for a range of projects throughout Europe.

"We are a loyal Liebherr customer when it comes to large cranes. Quite simply, Liebherr builds the right cranes", says Morten Kammer, Managing Director of BMS Heavy Cranes. Standard crane operation and the interchangeability of crane equipment are other important, cost-cutting benefits. "Particularly with our LR 1750 and LG 1750 we can interchange the equipment flexibly and use it to suit current requirements", says Morten Kammer.

The company has several sites in throughout Denmark. It also has subsidiaries in Sweden, Norway, Germany and Poland. Being close to its customers is extremely important for BMS Heavy Cranes. The company also has its own engineering department in which several employees work on project planning, conduct calculations and prepare drawings and work descriptions. The ability to provide these complete solutions from planning to completion is an important success behind BMS' success. Morten Kammer explains: "Safety is becoming more and more important during crane operations. We want our customers to be able to trust us. Naturally the reliable customer service from Liebherr helps us in this". The company has enjoyed great success with this strategy. Orders from a wide range of sectors and countries confirm that the concept is a good one.
