Mantsinen is manufacturing the largest hydraulic material handlers in the world, namely Mantsinen 160, 200 and 300, for which Belgian ports have expressed great interest. Tapio Pirinen, Vice President for Mantsinen material handling machinery division comments; “Heavy Handling has shown great results in Belgium, has extensive knowledge of state-of-the-art hydraulic machinery, and a straightforward vision with a strong will to grow in material handling segment.” “We are happy to have such a partner for us now covering whole Benelux”.
