Starting with the crane manufacturer Ardelt from Eberswalde, over the founders of Kirow in Leipzig Unruh & Liebig and Grohmann & Frosch to the Francke workshops in Bremen that are the basis for today’s company Kocks, the book ends with the history of Kranunion which unites all three crane specialists under one roof.
