Highly productive grabs and innovative solutions

In close cooperation with leading bulk terminal operators, crane manufacturers, Technical Universities and other stakeholders in the industry, Nemag continues to develop new products for the dry bulk industry. The aim is always to reduce handling costs per tonne of dry bulk materials transferred.
