2018 was a very good year for Bromma and I am optimistic that the coming year will be equally good. There are several large projects in the pipeline for which the equipment and specifically spreader orders are expected to be placed during the first half of the year. We are in a good competitive position for these projects. Our partners know that Bromma is a reliable partner delivering the performance and comfort needed and expected from such a critical component as the crane spreader“, says Lars Meurling, Marketing Director at Bromma. “The orders received during 2018 include a good share of replacement spreaders. Many of these orders are customers who already have Bromma spreaders and know they can rely on both the company and the products”, he continues.
