"We have been pleased with the quality and maneuverability of our Demag cranes," explained Aoki Juki President, Megumi Aoki, "which is why we chose the Demag AC 700-9 model this time around. And the fact that this unit is the most compact crane in the 700-tonne class was decisive."

For this Aoki has relied over the last 37 years on Demag cranes and is a trusted partner with Terex. I'm very excited to see Aoki's success in growing their business with the addition of yet another AC 700-9 crane."
