Specialized and industrial lifting covers a wide range of machines and technologies, and the market for these machines is growing. Crane and transport companies, in addition to specialized industrial services contractors, are using the latest equipment, including hydraulic gantries, tower gantries, strand jacks and heavy-duty fork trucks, to move everything from printing presses to vessels to baseball stadium roofs.
As reported from various construction sites, ACT reports on several projects that required specialized lifting and moving equipment. In each case, the task at hand was approached with caution and precision, using gear that is highly specialized and effective.
