Singapore rental company Hiap Heng has taken delivery of a new ATF 110G-5, the first Global series Tadano Faun all terrain in Southeast Asia.
Hiap Heng president Mr Foo See Han (below, with his new crane) said that he had decided to buy this model after seeing it at the 2004 Bauma exhibition in Germany and he was delighted to finally be able to take delivery.
"Tadano cranes are easy to maintain and the product support is good," Mr Foo said.
As soon as the new five-axle 110-tonne capacity crane arrived, it was sent straight to work on Jurong Island, a petrochemical hub. Mr Foo, aged 65, started his career as a heavy equipment mechanic and set up his own rental business in 1980. Today Hiap Heng has 30 employees, including 21 operators, one for each crane. The crane fleet ranges from 20-tonne up to 160-tonne capacity.
