About KA-Cranes

We dealt with the various tasks our customers set us early on in our corporate history. As a result, we produced the mobile cranes product series even in the 1980s. The products kept developing along with changing customer requirements. They have undisputedly proved their worth in practice.

Today, the mobile cranes with their diverse uses will benefit your rising demand to flexibility in your production processes as well.

Philosophy

Future-oriented paths in engineering

Reliability and long-term partnerships form the foundation of Maschinenbau Kaltenbach GmbH.

We have worked for many years with many of our customers. Our company is known for this continuity far beyond the region, in component and complete production alike. Our intense partnerships with our customers ensure a high degree of familiarity and effective exchange of valuable know-how.

This way, we contribute directly to our customers’ yield increase – mutual trust is rewarded with high economic efficiency, also because our solid business structure enables us to be very flexible.

Our reliable partners by our side give us the courage to set out on new, future-oriented paths.

Tried and tested customer orientation

Comprehensive modern machinery ensures a great production depth, including the precise processing of large machine elements. Tried and tested customer orientation characterises our own product range as well.

Products and services “made by Kaltenbach” can be found world-wide today.
