Toshiaki Ujiie has been named Tadano's new president, CEO, and representative director.

Accompanying the transition in leadership, Tadano announced several operational moves in pursuit of its long-term strategic goals.

In the Americas, Tadano is streamlining its business activities under a unified structure, the newly named Pan-American Operations. All commercial activities for the Tadano Group in North, Central, South America, and the Caribbean are coordinated by Tadano America Corporation.

Under this new structure, Tadano Mantis Corporation will continue to be an engineering and manufacturing center. Commercial operations, such as sales, marketing, service, and parts for the telescopic boom crawler crane lineup, will be coordinated through Tadano America Corporation. To keep up with demand for telescopic boom crawler cranes, production was also expanded beyond the factories in the United States with the addition of a European-made model contributing to the portfolio.

In Europe, Tadano started the reorganization of its operations, including a restructuring of the Tadano Faun and The Tadano Demag businesses. At the same time, Tadano is reintroducing Japan-made rough-terrain cranes for customers operating in the European market.

Offering more lifting solutions in Japan, Tadano is expanding sales of its all-terrain and lattice boom crawler cranes manufactured at the German Tadano Faun and Tadano Demag factories.
