United Kingdom

Hewden Tower Cranes has won its court battle to have a claim against Wolffkran GMBH heard in Britain. The crane manufacturer had wanted the proceedings to be heard in Germany in accordance with its dispute procedure.

In a statement, Hewden confirmed it is taking legal proceedings against the manufacturer and said: “Since our claim was filed, proceedings were put on hold by the court until a jurisdiction dispute with the defendant, who requested the proceedings be transferred to German jurisdiction, was resolved.”
