The manufacturing company Cranab in Vindeln outside Umeå is celebrating its 60th anniversary. It was in 1960 that the first step towards today's business was taken by the brothers Allan and Rune Jonsson. Today Cranab is a world-leading manufacturer of cranes and grapples for forestry machines and trucks.
The company Cranab in Vindeln developed a unique blue-lacquered grapple with mustache that was auctioned in favour of the fight against prostate cancer. The auction took place at Entrepreneur's meeting in Lycksele, Sweden, and there was great interest.
"Prostate cancer is the most common cancer form in Sweden. Many in the forest sector, as well as many of our users are men who are in a risk zone of being affected or have been affected. Therefore, it feels very good that in this way we have been able to contribute to a better cancer care, research on prostate cancer and the possibility of saving more lives, "says Håkan Bergh, sales manager in Sweden.
