Manitowoc was founded in the lakeshore community of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, in 1902 as a shipbuilding and ship-repair organization. Since that time, the company has grown and diversified, entering the lattice-boom crane business in the mid-1920’s and branching into commercial refrigeration equipment shortly after World War II.
Today, the company is comprised of two segments – cranes and foodservice equipment. In each of these segments Manitowoc is the industry leader in market share, product innovation, and product support services.
We have operations in 26 countries around the world, and will continue to expand the global reach of our products and services to meet the needs of our customers.
