San Antonio-based Grande Truck Center hosted an open house for customers in April, displaying several boom trucks and other specialized vehicles for which the company supplies trucks.

More than 200 people showed up for the event that also featured an exhibit center displaying truck components including tires, engines and other specialized equipment.

On display: a National 900D boom truck mounted on a Sterling truck; a Manitex 5096S mounted on a Western Star 8X4; a Manitex SC 62 Skycrane mounted on a Ford F750; and a Manitex 30102C mounted on a Sterling LT7501.

“We do a big business in the truck-mounted crane market,” said Michael King, director of commercial vehicle sales for Grande, which sells such brands as Sterling, Ford, Acterra and Western Star. “The market for truck-mounted cranes has been very good over the past few years.”
