Netherlands: BKV Invests in two Terex All Terrain Cranes

Established by Chris Deij in 1969, family-owned Barneveld Crane Rental Ltd. (BKV) has successfully built a strong reputation for providing highly specialized solutions in the lifting, transport and crane rental sector in the Netherlands. Currently managed by Chris Deij’s sons, Daan (Director), Dick, (Lifting Specialist), Henry (Planning) and Albert (Technical Services), the company recently bought its first Terex crane, a Challenger 3160, closely followed by the purchase of a second unit.

Technical specialist Albert maintains a young, reliable crane fleet and invests in today’s technology to adapt to market challenges – a key factor in securing the company’s future success.

Focused on providing innovative, cost-efficient solutions for highly technical and challenging projects, “The Terex Challenger is in a class of its own. It’s a great replacement for larger cranes in many cases, so we’re already getting profitable returns on our investment,” says Albert. “Rental is an important aspect of our business and our Challenger 3160 rental rates are very good. Fuel consumption is also lower than similar capacity cranes by other brands -which makes it more economical to operate.”
