At Lions & Cranes we conduct our work based on a philosophy that we call ”goowah goobah”. It is simply the Lions & Cranes way of putting the Swedish expression ”goa gubbar” meaning ”good fellows”. We are happy and friendly dudes that want to create joy and do good doing so. With respect for man and nature we want to transmit happy, respectful and good vibe energy in all we do. Basing all our actions on this perspective we constantly aim to nourish and develop a jolly good fellowship between us, our customers of various kind and planet earth.
