Leading Polish crane manufacturer lakes over German special crane supplier
On June 1, 2017, Axxia GmbH, a leading supplier of cranes and steel constructions in Germany had become a part of Protea Group, with 100% shares sale to Protea Sp. z o.o, a manufacturer of crane equipment from Poland.
Incorporating Axxia GmbH into Protea Group increases the company's development, manufacturing and service potential and enables handling of much larger and technically more complex projects. The company's existing range of services will now be expanded to include large industrial, marine and offshore cranes with lifting capacity of up to 3,000 t.
Gerd Rambow, Axxia’s Managing Director explains: "Protea Group increases our design and production capabilities. We can now offer our customers a much wider selection of high quality products at attractive prices. Being part of a larger group contributes to the stable development of the company and increases the range of opportunities in all areas."
Tomasz Paszkiewicz, Protea’s Manging Director adds: "The acquisition of a partner such as Axxia allows for closer contact with customers on the German market. We want to better recognize and serve the needs by using proximity to German customers and rely on Axxia’s contacts in various industrial sectors. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities are another building block in this constellation."
