History

For over 40 years we have built on significant growth and development in the material handling industry.
 
Since our establishment in 1972, we have been leading the way in the areas of design, manufacturing, sales, installation and the servicing of a comprehensive range of material handling systems and equipment in South East Asia. This success is reflected by the selection of equipment and support facilities that we offer through our regional companies and our branches based in different countries.
 
Today, MHE-Demag is represented by 63 sales offices throughout the region, as well as production facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Australia, the Philippines and Vietnam. We are a market leader in cranes and hoists, as well as in industrial products such as dock levellers, goods lifts, aerial platforms and building maintenance systems. We are also a strong player in the provision of car park systems and warehouse trucks, and provide the region’s most comprehensive after sales service infrastructure with more than 700 service engineers and technicians and 300 service vans.
