"We´ve been collaborating with Hiab since 2012 when we bought the first loader crane. Since then, we have been very happy with it. And when we wanted to buy more cranes for collecting underground containers, the choice was clear. Hiab offered us cranes with the CTC feature. And we decided to take the offer. And basically, it cuts our costs when handling the containers because we can work with it much faster."
Technical Manager, OZO Ostrava s.r.o.
