"The way to the top of the industry" was the headline of the laudation, which honoured the successful development of BKL from a regional crane dealer to one of the largest full-range suppliers of crane solutions in Europe. The jury praised in particular BKL's regional commitment, our crane app "My BKL", the professional consulting and planning as well as the further training offer for employees, which is firmly anchored in our corporate culture.

BKL IS A TOP INNOVATOR.

On June 19, 2020, there was a reason to celebrate.
BKL Baukran Logistik GmbH is a Top 100 SME in Germany and came out on top especially in the category "Innovative Processes/Organization". In fact, we made the Top 10 in this category.
BKL started to actively focus on the topic of digitalization some time ago. In addition to the "paperless office" project, our employees use tablets instead of carbon paper at construction sites. Also the “Mein BKL” app is one further step on our path to digitalization.
The award ceremony had to be canceled this year. Therefore, science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar congratulated BKL via video message. MORE INFORMATION

First GMK 5250XL-1 IN OPERATION FOR BKL IN THE GERMAN MARKET.

Besides two new GMK 5150L, BKL provides a real innovation in its mobile crane fleet in Frankfurt, as the GMK 5250XL-1 is the first crane of this type in Germany.
The team deployed the 250-tonne crane at construction site, directly after taking over in the factory in Wilhelmshaven: For the new construction of the Schierstein Bridge, that spans with 1,280 m the river Rhein, the mobile crane supported the installation of motorway bridge sections at the A643, that links Mainz and Wiesbaden. With 78.5 metre main boom and a load-bearing capacity of 9.3 tonnes the five-axle mobile crane was the "first cast" for the lifting job.
