Empire Crane Company has promoted Karl Pitre to New Jersey branch manager.

Empire Crane Company has promoted Karl Pitre to the branch manager of their Bridgewater, NJ location. Karl will oversee the service center and part sales as well as continuing to support our sales team on the road.

Karl has worked at Empire Crane Company since 2012. When the Bridgewater, NJ branch was opened, Karl was appointed to the service manager position as he had shown great potential and initiative to help build up the branch to serve our New Jersey and New York City customer base.


Karl Pitre has been at Empire Crane Company since 2012.

 Karl said, “I will be traveling a couple times a week to put machines in service. I will also get more involved with our sales department to insure that our parts and service teams are supporting our new and existing customers. The New Jersey location has grown steadily in the 2.5 – 3 years that we have been in business and we foresee great growth to come with our current equipment lineup and recent additions to our staff.”
