Centro applauds ‘Build, Build, Build’ program by providing Hiab 320T
As the ‘Build, Build, Build’ program of President Rodrigo Duterte has come into picture, the BMI Research sticks to its forecast that the country’s construction industry will grow by 11.8% this year, and will nearly double in value by 2022.
“President Rodrigo Duterte’s Php 8 trillion ‘Build, Build, Build’ infrastructure plan will generate significant volumes of construction activity through and beyond 2022, the end of his term. Although many of the projects were previously proposed, the current government's willingness to use alternative financing modes such as hybrid PPPs and development finance could help projects come to fruition more quickly,” said BMI in a released statement.
And to support the government’s thrust to spark more economic activity through its infrastructure project, truck body builder Centro Manufacturing Corporation has introduced the Hiab 320T crane, which will be one of the vehicles that will be used in the construction industry.
The Hiab 320T is a telescopic crane that can have from three to five booms, has a lifting capacity of 34 ton-meters, a maximum working radius of 19.6 meters and a maximum working height of up to 20.8 meters (almost as high as a seven-storey building).
It could lift loads of from 1.3 tons using a 5th boom up to 10 tons using its 1st boom only. This is perfect for moving horizontally and vertically various types and weights of loads within the construction site. And since this is truck-mounted, then it can be moved from one construction site to the other at a faster rate.
“With this continued economic growth and construction boom in the horizon, Centro will be the country’s partner all throughout, providing whatever truck-mounted equipment will be needed by the construction industry. We can also supply dump trucks, cement mixers, aerial work platforms, vacuum tankers and the like. This is our commitment”, said Jerryme Garcia, chief financial officer of Centro Manufacturing Corporation.
The Hiab Cranes will be on display at the 14th Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) tomorrow until April 8 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
