Konecranes have signed four new distributor agreements in Asia, in an effort to strengthen the company’s lift truck presence in the region.
Each new distributor is an established heavy lifting service provider in important markets throughout the region — MIPEC Technologies JSC in Vietnam, TIQE Cambodia Equipment in Cambodia, PT Berca Mandiri Perkasa in Indonesia, and General Machinery Technology in Myanmar.
The four new distributors each come with varied and extensive experience in the supply, service and maintenance of heavy lifting equipment.
MIPEC Technologies JSC, based in Hanoi, is one of the 500 largest companies in Vietnam, and signed the agreement with Konecranes in February 2018.
TIQE Cambodia Equipment mainly serves the autonomous port, dry port and railway line port market, and has many years of experience with the Linde line of container lifting equipment — which Konecranes acquired selected product rights for in 2013, making a natural pathway to the two companies partnering.
PT Berca Mandiri Perkasa has an excellent reputation for heavy equipment trading and mechanical-electrical contracting, and has been a long-established dealer for the Terex brand — which Konecranes also acquired in 2017.

General Machinery Technology was established 10 years ago and specialises in servicing heavy lift customers in the ports and container depots in the fast-growing economy of Myanmar.
Mr Patrik Lundbäck of Konecranes Lift Trucks commented: “As a company we are incredibly proud of our broad-based manufacturing capabilities in Asia, it is only fitting that our Asia dealership network also grows in order to better leverage that capacity.
“We look forward to a prosperous future with our new partners in Asia.”
