FCOC spins off from ABC

04 March 2008

The Florida Crane Owners Council (FCOC) has petitioned for status as a 501 (C) nonprofit organization in the state of Florida, spinning off as a separate organization from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC). The organization chose to separate from ABC to improve its ability to address issues specific to crane owners and operators in Florida.

“The state and national issues challenging crane owners and operators are so significant that we felt the need to be independent of any other group,” said Bruce Whitten, chairman of the FCOC and president of Fred's Crane based in Orlando, FL. “This new status will allow us to focus on legislative, insurance, tax, transportation, safety and operator certification issues specific to crane owners.”
