Our business & strategy
Employee experience the key to unlocking the best customer experience
To deliver the best customer experience we start with creating the best possible employee experience. By empowering our employees we believe they can be more successful and impactful in their work and provide improved capability to create value for our customers.
This is how we support our customers in dealing with unpredictability and the pace of transformation. We help create the solutions whether it be equipment, digital or services so that they can serve their customers and keep everyday life moving.
There is always a deeper purpose to our actions: we provide connected solutions like HiConnect™ so that companies can gather insights and run their businesses more efficiently. HiVision™ attracts new crane operators as it makes forest crane operation more inclusive and lay the foundation for a successful future.
We keep everyday life moving by unlocking the full potential of load handling in our customers’ businesses.
We continuously develop equipment, intelligent services and connected solutions that create more value. This is how we empower customers to do their jobs with focus on safety, reliability and efficiency.
We make sure that deliveries to construction sites are made with high precision and efficiency, that waste and recycling trucks keep our environments clean, and bakery trucks can deliver fresh bread for our breakfast. We keep everyday life moving, empowering progress.
To be the number one partner in global on-road load handling, inspiring and shaping the industry.
Our pioneering spirit is more relevant today than ever. Being a solution provider, we continuously look for new ways to address our customers’ needs and create value.
We are at the forefront of developing load handling solutions in collaborations with our customers to earn the trust to be their number one partner.
In recent years we introduced electric cranes and electric MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts. They perform like combustion engine powered equipment, but operate silently and without emissions. Perfect for low emission zones and night-time working.
Our services and digital products are developed to offer peace of mind so our customers can focus on what they do best and deliver on their promises.
