Manitowoc technical training takes off in Indonesia



Staff at PT Berlian Cranserco, Grove’s Indonesian dealer, have completed a comprehensive series of training programs to ensure customers across the country will benefit from “industry-leading” support.

Cranserco’s Technical Service Team, including technical manager Per Hamfeldt, customer support manager Neil Webb and 22 other technicians, completed a total of almost 1,200 courses, onsite and online, while embarking on the Manitowoc Technical E-Learning program. 

“Manitowoc is renowned for the trust and confidence its customers have in their cranes, and we hope to emulate that through continuous skills training and development of our technicians,” explained Neil Webb. “In these challenging times, furthering our knowledge via online and factory training solutions to increase customer support satisfaction becomes increasingly vital.”

Dedicated to providing customers with the best product support solutions for their crane and material handling requirements, Cranserco offers a variety of valuable services across Indonesia, from diagnosing problems over the phone to on-site repair and full maintenance contracts. 

Webb, who completed his two weeks’ training onsite at Manitowoc’s Singapore office, added that emulating Manitowoc’s partner-driven culture would play a crucial role in achieving the dealer’s aim of promoting innovation and faster response times to ensure greater competitiveness in an ever-changing world.

“Our technicians travel regularly throughout the country, working with customers’ maintenance teams to ensure their equipment is operating safely and efficiently. Completing this high level of training corresponds with our goal of constantly demonstrating to our customers that Cranserco strives to offer the highest level of customer support in the region.”
