20 February 2019

Jeff’s experience running the financial side of JJ Curran Crane, as well as his 26-year involvement with international fleet management software company Fleet Cost & Care , position him to continue promoting safety, innovation and technology to the crane and heavy equipment industries.

Larry has been actively involved with the national crane and rigging industry and spent many years serving as chair of the Crane & Rigging group of the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association.

“Working with my brother has been a tremendous and rewarding experience,” said Jeff Curran. “I want to thank Larry and his entire family for their dedication and commitment to our family business over the years.”

While retired from day-to-day operations, Larry will continue to act as an advisor and chairman at the company.
