Hiab UK has been awarded a special recognition award by parent company Cargotec for sustaining 20% growth two years in a row.
The Cargotec Great Performance Awards are presented annually to the three best-performing business units within the global Cargotec organization.
All Cargotec divisions and business units across the globe are considered for the award.
Chosen and presented by the Board of Cargotec, the award marks the first time that Hiab UK has won one of the coveted Great Performance Awards.
Hiab UK & Ireland Managing Director, Ian Mitchell, says there were several key performance achievements that helped Hiab UK secure the award:
“We achieved sustained growth of 20% in 2017 and repeated this with a further growth of 20% in 2018,” he says.
“The Board were also impressed by the excellent execution of our route-to-market strategy – developing five Hiab service and installation sites in the UK over the past 18 months.”
Other reasons the Board cited for the award to Hiab UK were its “development of growth in key sectors of the loader crane market in 2018”, and “building and developing a highly motivated team and fostering a winning team spirit”.
“To win this accolade from the Cargotec Board is testament to the contributions of every member of the Hiab UK & Ireland team, and our service partners too. Their combined efforts brought success in 2018 and the milestones that have been achieved are recognised in this award.
“Hiab UK is in a strong position to further support and service our UK customers and market,” adds Mitchell.
