WOLFFKRAN – Company Profile

WOLFFKRAN als Unternehmen

WOLFFKRAN. The name stands for experience and competence in the design, construction and use of tower cranes. With its innovative technology and know-how, the company has significantly contributed to the rapid developments in the field of material handling to date.

The corner stone upon which the success of WOLFFKRAN has been built was laid over 100 years ago by Julius Wolff with the design and construction of the first slewing crane.

A few years later, this was followed by development of the world’s first self-erecting top-slewing tower crane, a revolutionary invention for the construction sector.

Today, around 800 dedicated employees around the world ensure that the innovation process continues and that the WOLFF brand stands for a comprehensive range of trolley jib and luffing jib tower cranes. The red WOLFF cranes are manufactured in the main plant in Heilbronn and the new plant in Luckau (both in Germany). Branch offices across Germany and subsidiaries in Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Great Britain, the USA and the United Arab Emirates, as well as the headquarters for international business in Zug guarantee intensive customer care.

With a rental fleet of approx. 700 tower cranes WOLFFKRAN is among the major providers in this area of business. This underscores the flexibility and dynamics of the tower crane specialist serving customers worldwide as both manufacturer and service provider.
