German trailer manufacturer, Krone, and fellow German axle specialist, Gigant, have announced a partnership that will see the development of innovative axle assemblies and chassis for Krone's agricultural and utility equipment.
In addition, the companies intend to create and exploit synergies in the areas of purchase, manufacturing and aftersales services, with Gigant planning to form a company within the Krone Group in the near future.
Gigant is a medium-sized, family-owned company that is based in the northern Germany town of Dinklage. It has been in the utility vehicle market for 60 years, with more than 40 years as a supplier of axle assemblies for Krone's commercial trailers. Its product line ranges from lightweight axles to heavy-duty and semi-trailer axle assemblies.
