Tower Cranes Manufacturing
The home of Terex Tower Cranes, GRU COMEDIL Srl, is located in Fontanafredda, a small town in the North East of Italy, equally distant from the Adriatic sea and the Alps, close to Venice. The Fontanafredda plant houses R&D, production, sales, service and parts. A dedicated testing facility located in Polcenigo is the place to test all the new prototypes and technical improvements that we constantly apply on our tower cranes.
Our Italian production includes all range of tower crane products: self erecting, flat top, luffing jib and hammerhead.
The Company was established in 1962 and in 1986 the manufacturing moved to Fontanafredda, rapidly becoming the reference brand in the market for Flat Top Tower Cranes. In 1998 the company became part of Terex Corporation that invested on a fully brand new facility opened in 2007. Since then, Terex has been strongly investing in research & development, launching new cranes leading the market as the biggest luffer CTL 1600-66 with 66 ton capacity in 2014 and the first hydraulic luffer in 2019.
