Manitowoc: S. J. Contracts puts its faith in Potain tower cranes
The Company’s current projects include the Amar TechPark and Malpani Agile in Pune where MCR 160 and MC 310 K12 cranes are deployed.
Investing in Potain tower cranes has helped leading Indian construction company S. J. Contracts boost its business. Saurabh Jangle, the owner of S. J. Contracts, said a perfect mix of product quality and customer support made Potain an ideal partner for his company.
“We buy Potain cranes because of their commendable build quality. Potain also provides us with seamless after-sales support. The technical solutions are unbeatable. Our plant and machinery team are very satisfied with the in-depth knowledge the Potain India team provides. The cranes also offer easier installation, best-in-class floor climbing solutions, safety, and durability, all of which help increase our business efficiency.”
Investing in Potain tower cranes has helped S. J. Contracts become a leading brand in Pune. The company’s reputation is built on high-quality work and the timely completion of projects. Its fleet contains 12 Potain MCi 85 cranes, three Potain MC 125 cranes, and 8 MCT 85 cranes. For projects where it needs larger cranes, it rents them. One example is the Malpani Agile jobsite, where S.J. Contracts has rented an MCR 160 luffing jib crane and an MC 310 K12 from SORIL Infra Resources.
The MCT 85 is the newest model in the S.J. Contracts fleet. It offers all its mechanisms with variable-frequency drive as an option, enabling finer control of the crane. Performance is strong too. For example, when fitted with the standard issue 25 PC 13 hoist, the lifting speed can reach a maximum of 71 m/min, giving a huge boost to jobsite productivity.
The MCT 85 superseded the MCi 85, which also features heavily in the S.J. Contracts fleet. It has a maximum capacity of 5 t and is one of the most successful tower cranes ever sold in India. The maximum radius is 52 m and it has a maximum tip capacity of 1.3 t. The final model in the S.J. Contracts fleet is the MC 125, which has a maximum capacity of 6 t. Maximum radius for the crane is 60 m and it can lift up to 1.15 t at this distance. Both the MCT 85 and MC 125 are built at the local Manitowoc manufacturing plant in Pune.
S. J. Contracts specializes in residential, commercial, and industrial projects across India. The company employs 1,400 people and is based in Pune, India.
