AmQuip and Elliott team up in Tennessee
18 April 2008
Elliott Crane Rental and AmQuip have teamed up in the Tennessee Valley region of the US, forming a strategic alliance known as Elliott/AmQuip Crane Rental.
Based in Nashville, TN, Elliott Crane Rental is a 40-year-old business owned by Bud and Clark Elliott, and has offered one of the largest inventories of hydraulic and conventional cranes in the region. The alliance with AmQuip gives the company more reach and the ability to offer customers a complete line of hammer-head and luffing tower cranes, rough terrains, large crawler cranes, hydraulic truck cranes, and all terrain cranes to 550 tons capacity, according to a joint statement.
Headquartered near Philadelphia, PA, AmQuip is a leading US crane rental company, and last year made a significant expansion into the tower crane market by opening offices in Cincinnati, OH and Birmingham, AL. The partnership with Elliott geographically “ties together” AmQuip's Alabama and Ohio operations and, according to Joseph Wesley, AmQuip owner and president, is the “perfect marriage.” Clark Elliott will lead the partnership as regional vice president.
