California-based Bigge Crane and Rigging has purchased 58 Manitowoc and Grove cranes in the past 12 months.

Bigge’s marketing manager, Ryan Parker, said the company’s Manitowoc and Grove fleet is expanding “exponentially” to meet market demands – especially for the booming oil and natural gas industries.

“The US market is growing faster than expected and global contractors are making up for lost time,” he said. “We’re experiencing substantial growth and we’re purchasing more Manitowoc and Grove cranes to capitalize on the expanding oil and natural gas markets.”

The Bigge purchase order has included truck-mounted, rough- and all-terrain cranes, including: 36 Grove RT890Es, three Grove RT880Es, two Grove RT9150Es, one Grove RT9130E, eight Grove TMS9000Es, two Grove GMK6350s and six Manitowoc 11000-1s.

Nineteen of the new units were purchased during Bauma 2013, held in Munich, Germany earlier this year.
