Konecranes, a global leader in the manufacturing and servicing of overhead cranes and lifting equipment, announces the acquisition of Ameratronic Industries Inc. of Portage, Indiana, effective June 21, 2012.

In June 2012, Konecranes acquired the assets of Ameratronic Industries, a Northwest Indiana firm that has been providing crane and hoist service to process duty customers in the area for 17 years. The owners will be retiring. The business operations and five skilled employees will be incorporated into Konecranes’ nearby existing branch, located at 1255 Erie Court #B, Crown Point, IN, 46307.

“We’re very excited about this acquisition,” said Bernie D’Ambrosi, Vice President and Director, Region Americas Service, “and we look forward to continuing the high standard of service that Ameratronic Industries has established.”
