Tadano Faun GmbH – a 100% subsidiary of Tadano Ltd.

Tadano Ltd., which was founded in 1948 and has its headquarters in Takamatsu, Japan, is an internationally positioned group of companies, which has specialised in the development and production of hydraulic mobile cranes and hoisting equipment. The main production activities take place at five sites. Three of these sites are in Japan, one is in America and one has been in Germany since 1990 through us, Tadano Faun GmbH.

As Tadano Faun GmbH, we represent the centre of excellence for the Tadano Group in terms of the development and production of the Tadano All-Terrain cranes. All Tadano All-Terrain cranes are developed and produced in our factory in Lauf an der Pegnitz near Nuremberg and then distributed throughout the world via our global distribution and service network. As well as All-Terrain cranes, we also develop and construct Truck-Mounted cranes at our site. 

When Tadano Ltd. took over FAUN GmbH in 1990, the high Japanese standard of quality and German art of engineering created a unique symbiosis. Tried-and-tested Japanese methods to increase quality are being transferred to the construction of All-Terrain cranes and Truck-Mounted cranes, consistently implemented and further developed by us, the newly set-up Tadano Faun GmbH. In this way, we are able to offer our customers mobile cranes with above-average reliability, thus satisfying their high quality requirements. Through continual investments in the development of production sites, we have sustainably improved our product and service quality and developed our product range step by step.

The turnover of the worldwide Tadano Group was about 1.45 billion Euro in the 2018/2019 financial year. Worldwide, the Tadano Group employs 5,100 employees, of which 900 are based at the German site in Lauf an der Pegnitz. With over 98 international sales and service stations and 20 branches, the Tadano Group is one of the major manufacturers in the field of mobile crane and hoisting technology. In total, Tadano has produced and successfully delivered hoisting equipment for more than half a million hoisting vehicles in the last few decades of its company’s history.

Tadano Faun GmbH is continuing to grow

Motivated by the success of our ATF 400G-6, we are currently investing in the renovation and development of our business premises. To provide sufficient space in the future to be able to manufacture and test more and larger cranes, we have moved our spare parts storage to a neighbouring site and invested in a new large test site.
