Bromma marks brisk spreader sales

Bromma Group said it has sold more than 50 of its STS45 separating twin-lift spreaders in Europe and Asia in the first half of this year.

In 2003, Bromma crane spreader orders increased by 30 percent and the order backlog grew by almost 50 percent over the comparable figures for 2002.

The Swedish company attributes the growth to demand for its STS45, of which 95 were sold in the second half last year worldwide.

The trend has continued in the first half of this year with major recent orders including contracts for 24 STS45 spreaders to the Port of Pusan, South Korea; 15 to MSC Home Terminal in Antwerp, Belgium; seven to Wai Gao Qiao, China; six to Shekou, China, and nine to Ningbo, China.

The Pusan order is one of Bromma's largest single ship-to-shore crane spreader orders. The spreaders will be fitted to ZPMC cranes on delivery to Pusan Newport Co.

The Antwerp contract is one of Bromma's largest deliveries ever to Belgium. The contract is from Hesse-Noord Natie NV for spreaders to be placed into service at its MSC Home Terminal.
