Manitowoc Pledges to Help Reconstruct Notre-Dame

Crane manufacturer Manitowoc said that Potain, its manufacturer of tower cranes, has pledged to support reconstruction efforts of the historic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

Crane manufacturer Manitowoc said that Potain, its manufacturer of tower cranes, has pledged to support reconstruction efforts of the historic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, which was badly damaged in a fire last month. Manitowoc said it will provide tower cranes and related services free of charge. The terms of this offer have been officially presented to the authorities.

"It seemed natural to us that Potain, our tower crane brand that for more than 90 years has been involved in the construction of the most emblematic works of French architecture, is committed to rebuilding Notre-Dame de Paris,” said Barry Pennypacker, president and CEO of The Manitowoc Company Inc. “Our cranes and technical expertise will be there to meet the challenge of a rapid reconstruction of the cathedral.”
