Franna®, the leading manufacturer of mobile pick and carry cranes recently made their debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG; North America’s largest construction tradeshow. The event took place on 10-13 March, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Despite challenging conditions both exhibitors and attendees travelled in numbers, coming together to deliver a safe and successful event for all involved. Total registered attendance reached over 130,000 for the week with less than one percent of cancellations from international attendees.
Danny Black, General Manager at Franna reflects on the show “We are thrilled with our success at Conexpo 2020 in terms of attendance, sales prospects and opportunity created. Having worked for this great business for over 30 years, it was a proud moment to see Franna showcased on the largest international stage. A special word of thanks to many of our Australian customers who travelled to Las Vegas to mark the occasion with us”
Based out of the Festival Grounds at booth #F7376, Franna displayed a left hand drive version of their AT 22 model – the first of its kind in North America. The machine boasts a maximum lifting capacity of 24 US Tons and the versatility of the crane allows customers to work in endless numbers of lifting applications.
Mark Lock, Franna Sales Director said “We have been overwhelmed by the interest and support Franna received at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Whilst the pick and carry concept is relatively unknown in the North American market, customers are already starting to see the benefits that our cranes will bring to their fleet. Until recently, the AT 22 has not been suitable for import to the States but now Franna is fully compliant for construction site work in the USA and we are open for business! In the coming weeks, our show machine will be deployed in a large construction project in Southern USA. This is a significant milestone in our international journey and we are looking forward to building on this success.”
