“We are pleased to welcome the Aspen team to the Manitowoc family. Our combined businesses provide unique synergies to accelerate our growth in the coming years. From a new machine perspective, Aspen’s upfitting business fits nicely with our National Crane boom truck business and will enable us to better serve key end markets, such as utility and telecommunications customers.

In addition, Aspen’s specialized crane and truck equipment upfitting capabilities provide greater depth of product offerings to a wider base of customers including loyal Manitowoc customers.
