Locatelli is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of mobile telescopic hydraulic cranes. It has particular expertise in the development and manufacturer of mobile rough terrain cranes.
The company, located in Mapello, Lombardy, in Northern Italy, was founded in 1954. It has since extended its product range with a strong focus on three key crane attributes – high performance, reliability and low crane maintenance costs thanks to no compromise on the use of high quality components.
For more than 60 years, Locatelli mobile cranes have delivered outstanding service in a wide range of industrial lifting environments, including:
- Highway maintenance and construction
- Docks and shipyards
- Water, gas and electricity utility facilities
- Rail transport
- Petrochemical plants
Its success and ambition has now led Locatelli to appoint Hird Ltd to be its authorised partner in the UK and Ireland. Hird has more than 35 years’ experience in crane lifting – and all the expertise and resources needed to match Locatelli’s desire to provide the best after-sales service.
After-sales support and training
Hird provides excellent after-sales support, including technical advice, service and maintenance, PUWER and LOLER testing and examination, and crane refurbishment.
Hird also provides CPCS accredited compact crane operator training, plus a wide range of other courses. Training is delivered at its four training centres across the UK, or at client locations, if they are appropriate.
Working together, Locatelli and Hird provide rental companies and industrial crane users with the best mobile cranes and rough terrain cranes on the market – and the best service so they always deliver lifting excellence.
