A day in the life of a Konecranes technician

September 21, 2016

Find out what it's like to be a Konecranes service technician in the US by following one of our own as he goes about his daily service activities.

After retiring from a steel mill with 33 years of service, Rod Swingle joined Konecranes where he has been a technician for three years.

As in any job, success as a crane technician calls for a strong work ethic, not to mention a combination of mechanical and electrical

expertise. From arriving at his branch, talking to a supervisor, and sharing a light moment with coworkers to inspecting and repairing a 75-ton bridge crane, he says that being a technician is challenging but fun.

“Making that customer happy is what Konecranes is all about,” Swingle shares. “At Konecranes, I’m not just a technician. I’m a member of the world’s largest crane service company and I’m proud of that.”
