Bay Ltd. expands fleet with Liebherr ATs

By Hannah Sundermeyer05 January 2021

Bay Ltd, one of the largest privately owned crane companies in the United States, took delivery of 15 new Liebherr cranes in 2020 adding to the 45 Liebherr cranes already in the fleet.

Bay Ltd using its Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 to lift a 780,000 pound (354 metric tonne) hydro cracker reactor for a local Corpus Christi refinery

The large order for Bay Ltd consisted of 15 all terrain cranes ranging from 60 to 600 US tons capacity.  The company already owned 45 Liebherr cranes ranging from a 50 metric ton capacity LTM 1050-3.1 to a 1,200 metric ton LTM 11200-9.1, a 600 metric ton LR 1600-2 lattice boom crawler crane and two Liebherr telescopic boom LTR series crawler cranes.

“The crane techs at Bay rely heavily on the detailed training Liebherr is able to provide,” said Berry Peterson, vice president of equipment service, Bay Ltd. “That combined with the service department and parts availability gives them a head up when Bay is looking to source additional cranes for the fleet. No other crane manufacturer has provided Bay Ltd with the quality we get from the Liebherr product. It is because of the support and response Bay receives from Liebherr that we ordered an additional 15 all terrain units. We are proud to say that we will have 60 Liebherr cranes in our fleet.”
