On June 21, the Danish crane company Kran-Kompagniet became part of Nordic Crane, when the owners sold 70 percent of the business to one of Scandinavia’s leading crane companies. Nordic Crane will now be a supplier of all types of lifts in Denmark as well as Norway and Sweden.
More than 10 years ago, brothers Morten and Erik Mortensen and Casper Petersen decided to follow their dream and start their own mobile crane business. The three are now selling the majority of their business to Nordic Crane.
“We have had 10 very good years with great success, but to take part in larger scale of projects we need increased volume,” said Morten Eriksen, co-owner of Kran-Kompagniet AS. “We are looking forward to this partnership with Nordic Crane, which will give us an opportunity to develop further, and make it possible for us to have a larger share of the Danish market.”
“Kran-Kompagniet is a solid company that is well established in Denmark,” said Morten Heli-Hansen, director of Nordic Crane. “We have been looking for a partner in Denmark for a long time and found a good match in Kran-Kompagniet. We are excited about this Danish adventure ahead.”
“The agreement marks a milestone, as Nordic Crane is now represented throughout Scandinavia,” said Pål Kynningsrud, CEO of Kynningsrud Group, which owns Nordic Crane.
Kran-Kompagniet will be profiled as Nordic Crane. It will continue to be led by Petersen, while Morten and Mikkel will be responsible for the Danish departments on Zealand and Jutland.
