Andrew Snow

SANY has appointed Andrew Snow as the new UK manager for crane products.

Andrew has over 20 years’ experience in the construction equipment industry with companies such as Terex, Demag and Tadano.

He will lead SANY’s crane division in the UK and Republic of Ireland, overseeing all aspects of operations, sales, and customer support.

“SANY is committed to delivering high-quality cranes and exceptional customer service to our clients in the UK,” Andrew said. “I am delighted to join the SANY team at the start of its journey as we expand our product range and work towards strengthening our presence in the European market.”

The SANY cranes product range in the UK includes telescopic crawler cranes from 60 to 80-tonnes with two new larger models due in 2024 and a range of lattice boom cranes from 60 to 480-tonnes. SANY is also committed to electrical cranes with 100% battery-powered models available in both product ranges.

The SAC600E 60-tonne three axle all terrian crane is due to launch to the UK market this month. The model will be powered by a MTU OM470LA Stage V engine coupled with Allison transmission driven by Kessler axles. It will be fitted with a 50m main boom with the option of 16m double folding jib and will travel with 13t Cwt within UK STGO regulations.

Andrew added, “We have already seen success and product acceptance in other European countries and now SANY aims to establish itself as a leading provider of cranes in the UK as well. The SAC600E is just the first of a range of all terrain products which will be offered to European markets with 120-tonne four axle and 250-tonne five axle models due soon.

SANY Cranes will be located in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and will operate from the premises of existing SANY business Putzmeister UK.
