Cleveland, Ohio – Terex Material Handling announced an order for Demag KBK Modular Crane System from Heraeus Tenevo.
“Earlier this year we had the need to upgrade six hoist systems in our facility to a higher capacity,” says Kenneth Koch, Senior Process Specialist of Production Engineering, Heraeus Tenevo. “A couple of the systems were going to be very tricky due to installation time constraints, a relatively low ceiling height, and the need to work around potentially dangerous chemicals. After considering various products and installers, we decided on using Demag products and having SJA Materials Handling do the installation.”
Of the project’s results, Koch said, “The installation went as planned and we were happy with the results. Bottom line, many hours of pre-planning on SJA Materials Handling part, good factory Demag support, and flexible quality products allowed us to accomplish our goals of having safer and easier to use hoist systems.”
