Specialized personnel demand more comfort
In old television documentaries, you see people wrapped in thick jackets with teddy bear fur, looking down on an enormous construction site in lofty crane cabins, raving about their dream job. For such a specialized and responsible job, many put up with the adverse conditions in the drivers' and crane cabins. Over the years, not only did construction machinery get bigger and more technically sophisticated, but skilled workers also became more specialized, scarce, and selective.
"We hear from our customers in the construction sector that there is a strong market for workers, especially for large, technically demanding construction equipment," reports Matthias Rettinger, Product Line Manager at Webasto Customized Solutions. "Skilled personnel can choose their job and are quite demanding. Comfort is high on their list – even in the most remote areas and in the most adverse conditions."
For specialized personnel, comfort is a prerequisite these days.
