History of World Power

World Power has only been in the game for 36 years but they’ve quickly managed to garner a reputation as the leading crane and heavy-duty machine manufacturers. Their success is driven by their dedication to serving the heavy-duty machinery needs of all customers. Moreover, World Power strives to innovate and continuously develop new and improved products that encourage competition and sets new bars in terms of heavy-duty cranes.

World Power hosts a range of truck-mounted boom cranes and truck-mounted telescopic cranes, intending to become the largest crane manufacturer in the world. World Power continues to strive as the leading powerhouse for heavy-duty cranes by continually pushing the limits of their cranes.

Benefits of World Power cranes

World Power, is the world’s largest knuckle boom crane manufacturers, is one of few companies in the production of fully customisable machines.

World Power produces its crane and heavy machinery in European standards, the reliability of its production and products certified with its CE and TUV certificates.

The company takes pride in the swift and effetive after-sales services provided by in-house technical service team as well as its appointed distributors around te world.

World Power’s technnological innovations includes the world’s first 360ton knuckle boom crane that operates in low headroom situations, saving time and labour of moving, assembling and dessembling under sheltered circumstances.

Another revolutionary achievement is the world’s most powerful 450ton self-propelled (all-terrain) knuckle boom crane.

The new generation knuckle boom rotator tow truck which can balance the entire weight of the crane as well as the load under lift across the rear and front axles by placing the knuckle boom and its extensions horizontally over the driver’s cab, resulting in a more stable and safe drive.

World Power strives to deliver a plethora of high-performance cranes and heavy-machines suited for both land and sea unloading/loading jobs. In addition to their finest knuckle boom and telescopic cranes, used in construction yards, forestry, and precast, World Power also manufacturers marine lifts with lifting capacities going up to 320 tonnes. Their selection of marine lifts includes:

  • Wreckers
  • Tow Trucks
  • Water Trench Makers
  • Cleaners
  • Excavators
  • Scrap Loaders

The world-renowned 450 Tm self-propelled all-terrain crane was a project spearheaded by World Power and stands as one of the most advanced and powerful knuckle boom cranes ever produced. With innovations made every day, World Power continues to lead the world in crane technology and has quickly become the main symbol for the latest crane technology, with patents on new generation knuckle boom rotors and tow trucks.

Large hydraulic pipes allow for maximum working power and speed right from the first manoeuvres. Effer’s speed control system PROGRESS 2.0 prevents all sudden crane movements, improving the safety of people and that of the load.

To meet the demands of the market, Effer plays host to some of the best experts in the crane-world and ensures that you receive the support and expertise you deserve.

To stay ahead of the competition, Effer has ensured to keep their R&D department well on their toes, to ensure the development of the most advanced pieces of crane technology, many of which are available right now in the latest Effer cranes.

Since their inception, Effer has delivered the most durable cranes which have been specially produced under the most scrutinous tests. Moreover, they are made in Effer’s factories to ensure quality and performance.


ISO 9001:2008
ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems
ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:
  • needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
  • aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.

Benefits of EFFER truck-mounted cranes

With more than 40 models ranging from 2 to 300 tons in capacity, EFFER offers the best options for truck-mounted cranes for all commercial and industrial use.

The light weight of Effer’s crane allows for a greater residual load on the truck: greater useful load = less time = higher profit.

A lighter structure allows lifting to be more powerful. A lighter crane – with the same power – can be mounted onto a lower range truck.

An optional base and full extension allows rapid installation. Thanks to positioning flexibility, CroSStab reduces truck shifting, making Effer cranes time-saving and efficient. Easy reinstallation of CroSStab and V-Stab systems on a second truck maintains their value over time.

Effer offers stabilisation solutions for confined spaces while maintaining excellent performance of its cranes.

The High Speed System saves up to 50% of your time with each extension. The extensions comes out in sequence results in reduced crane weight, preserving greater lifting power and loading capacity while reducing working time.

The Pro.Dec system, controlling inward and outward boom extensions, makes load handling safer.

With integration of the Wind&Drive system, the winch stays attached in the same position on the crane, cutting down time for component mounting.

The use of anti-twist cables and the reduction of the arrow effect decrease the wear of components, extending their lifespan. Protection of the winch electronic parts reduces damage, saving maintenance time and costs.

The assembly of the mechanical, hydraulic and electronic systems of Effer cranes manages rotation movements with extreme precision.

Effer solutions for the two rotation systems ensure a precise monitoring of movements over the entire working area of the crane for maximum operator
and load safety.

Large hydraulic pipes allow for maximum working power and speed right from the first manoeuvres. Effer’s speed control system PROGRESS 2.0 prevents all sudden crane movements, improving the safety of people and that of the load.
