Potain Hup M 28-22 on display at Eurobois trade fair in France

Visitors at Eurobois, the leading trade show for the wood industry in Lyon, France, have the chance to see the Potain Hup M 28-22 up close. Potain’s long-standing dealer, Valente Grue Assistance  (Valente) is proudly displaying the innovative self-erecting crane on its stand from February 4 – 7.

The Hup M 28-22 was officially launched at Batimat  in November 2019, and since then, Valente has already sold the first model to a local builder in the Rhône-Alpes region. The Hup M 28-22 is the first model from the groundbreaking Hup self-erecting crane range to prioritize mobility, which is denoted by the “M” in its name. The model is only 11.5 m (38 ft) long when folded, enabling it to work in narrow, restricted job sites, as well as making it easy to transport from site to site.

Established in 1979, Valente is a leading tower crane sales and rental company based in Belley, near Lyon. The company has represented Potain since 1996 and supplies cranes to customers across the Rhône-Alpes region.
