Bigge's AFRD super crane.

Bigge Crane and Rigging is now offering bare rough terrain and crawler crane leasing in the Rockies following the opening of its new operation in Denver.

The opening followed increased customer requests from companies in the Plains region, which Bigge had historically been unable to take up. Since opening in Denver, the firm has won contracts for work in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.

The company has several cranes commissioned out to a refinery in Sayre, Oklahoma; rough terrain and crawler cranes in use at a gas plant project in Hugeta, Kansas; and is also supplying a pipeline job in Miller, Missouri. The geographic proximity of Bigge's locations in Denver and Houston was instrumental in providing the logistical support, transportation and field support for these projects.

“Based on our reputation, we’ve always fielded requests to send cranes to projects in the Plains states but haven’t been price competitive to local providers,” said John Krane, equipment leasing manager for Bigge. “With our locations in Denver and the added capacity to our Houston branch, we can now offer cost effective service without sacrificing the excellence for which Bigge has always been known.”

The Denver terminal provides a waypoint between established Bigge locations in Salt Lake City and the company’s regional headquarters in Houston, Texas.

Bigge operates 13 locations across the US and offers a fleet of more than 350 machines.
