A multi-million pound contract has been signed between Hiab UK and Ireland Ltd and MV Commercial Ltd for 100 light, medium and heavy truck cranes.

MV Commercial is a longstanding partner of Hiab. The latest deal is one of several million pound agreements in recent years that have cemented the strategic partnership between the two companies.

Valued at more than £ 5 million, the units will be delivered to the specialist crane truck manufacturer between 2021 and 2022 to maintain and expand the highly specified inventory for sale or rental.

Steven Cairns, Managing Director of MV Commercial, said, “This deal is a testament to the excellent working relationship we have with the Hiab team and will add to our industry leadership position and add to our fleet of high quality equipment tailored to our customers’ needs.

“MV Commercial has one of the best fleets of ready-to-use specialty crane units in the UK, with hundreds of units of specialty vehicles being shipped annually. Therefore, it is critical to our business model that we maintain good levels of high quality equipment.

“By partnering with Hiab, we can offer our customers first-class, premium equipment that we can all rely on. The service support packages give our customers all over the UK added security. “

Ian Mitchell, Managing Director of Hiab UK and Ireland, said: “Working closely with MV Commercial to develop a strategic partnership has been instrumental in our UK growth plans.

“I expect there will be more interest in truck cranes in the rental sector as businesses recover from the effects of Covid-19 and Brexit. We’re proud to partner with one of the UK’s leading leasing companies to give businesses more.

“The cranes are equipped with the HiConnect telematics system, which enables users to track crane performance to reduce downtime and achieve significant cost savings.

“Our service network offers MV Commercial and its customers fast, effective and reliable service and maintenance over the entire life cycle of the devices.

“This is a significant deal for Hiab that includes the installation of 60 units and will create an ongoing pipeline of parts, service and repairs for us for up to ten years.”

MV Commercial has been in operation for twenty years and has grown into one of the largest suppliers of special truck cranes. Last year the company was named UK Independent Dealer of the Year 2020.
