Welcome to  Konecranes!

Before we welcome summer and start the holiday season, it’s time for the next Helsinki Data Science Meetup. This time our host is Konecranes, a world-leader in lifting businesses. The meetup takes place at the company HQ in Hyvinkää (Koneenkatu 8).

With the mission of Not just lifting things, but entire businesses, Konecranes serves its customers across the globe by manufacturing cranes and lifting equipment for industries handling heavy loads, meaning manufacturing and process industries, shipyards, ports and terminals. In addition to these productivity enhancing lifting solutions, Konecranes service division offers maintenance and modernization services from a single piece of equipment to entire operations for industrial cranes.The company has 17,000 employees at 600 locations in 50 countries.

Konecranes wants to be in a leading position when logistics processes are enhanced with new data. The vision of knowing in real time how millions of lifting devices perform and using this knowledge around the clock to make Konecranes customers’ operations safer and more productive is realized in real time lifecycle care, automated operations with possibilities for remote control, using analytics to improve the safety and performance of customers’ processes, service technicians and customers having access to all relevant information anywhere, anytime – just to name a few examples.
