Capco/AmQuip to partner in New England states

18 April 2008

Capco Equipment and AmQuip have joined forces to form the Capco/AmQuip team, offering customers in the New England states the Potain and Comedil line of luffing tower cranes as well a complete line of hammer head tower cranes, crawler cranes, rough terrain cranes and truck cranes.

AmQuip president Joseph Wesley said the partnership will offer customers of both companies the most extensive, complete and modern crane rental fleet in the Northeast US.

We have worked closely with AmQuip for the past several years and formed a strong relationship based on safety, trust and performance,” said Mike Caparco.

AmQuip's general manager Frank Bardonaro termed the partnership “the most productive one-stop-shop in the crane rental industry.”

In 2005, AmQuip invested heavily in the tower crane rental market with a $60 million purchase of new tower cranes. Last year the company opened a new tower crane facility in Birmingham, AL, headed up by Dennis Bates.

CapCo is based in Providence, RI and AmQuip is based near Philadelphia.

Long-time crane industry professionals, Caparco and Wesley combined represent almost 100 years of experience in the crane rental business.
