PALFINGER: Premium Presentation in Dubai

23.11.2021

PALFINGER takes Expo 2020 in Dubai as an opportunity to exclusively present innovations, new technologies and new business models to a select audience. This sees the world’s leading manufacturer of innovative crane and lifting solutions positioned in a market with a promising future.

“Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” is the tagline of Expo 2020 in Dubai - which opened after a one-year delay. Since October 2021, more than 190 countries have been presenting their future solutions for business, science, and research to an international audience. “PALFINGER is committed to the claim: ‘Shaping the future together’,” states PALFINGER CEO Andreas Klauser, going on to say, “That is why we are taking this opportunity to present PALFINGER as a global, innovative and future-oriented company to select customers and partners from the region.”

Creating Value Together

On November 9 and 10, a top PALFINGER delegation led by CEO Andreas Klauser, together with Senior Vice President Global Sales & Service Gerhard Sturm and STRUCINSPECT Managing Director Albrecht Karlusch, presented new technologies, solutions and business sectors to more than 70 partners and customers. “Since its founding 90 years ago, PALFINGER has been actively driving forward technical progress,” says Andreas Klauser. The company focuses on future-proof solutions that are developed with and for its customers. “Our goal is: Creating value together,” explains Klauser.
 

Complete Solutions and Digital Platforms

In order to ensure shared growth, PALFINGER is expanding its portfolio. PALFINGER’s cranes and lifting systems have long been part of an intelligent network with data facilitating customers’ daily work. All relevant and available information flows together and enables optimized operations as well as spot-on maintenance work. With its corporate incubator P21st, PALFINGER is also actively driving forward transformative innovations, including the world’s first hub for digital inspection and lifecycle management provided by STRUCINSPECT and PALFINGER CONNECTED. Based on this digitalization competence, PALFINGER offers complete solutions rather than just a product. Systems that bring together crane, vehicle, sensors and information networks to form an overall solution that delivers essential advantages for fleet management in terms of deployment and efficiency. STRUCINSPECT is a good example of how quickly innovations can lead to new business models. The digital inspection solution for infrastructure buildings developed together with partners in Corporate Incubator P21st is to become a fully networked service platform for global services.
 

Product Show of the Superlative

Together with its local trading partner Gotrade, PALFINGER demonstrated the wide range of applications and strengths of its products. Around 150 guests, customers, and partners from all over the region came together for this superlative product show. “PALFINGER has been active in the Middle East for more than 40 years. We made excellent use of these two days to intensify and expand our customer relations,” says Andreas Klauser.
