By Hannah Sundermeyer01 August 2023
ABM Equipment has placed a second order of Manitex 50-ton capacity mobile truck cranes, adding five Manitex 50 155 cranes to the initial cranes ordered in March 2023. ABM Equipment, headquartered in Hopkins, MN, became a Manitex dealer in June 2022.
The equipment investment, nearing $7.5 million for ABM, has been used to build ABM Equipment’s rental fleet capacity and service customers in Minnesota and North Dakota, the company said.
ABM Equipment services the upper mid-west with lifting solutions, custom utility truck upfitting, rentals, parts and service. Their fleet services power generation, installing and servicing wind generators and powerline contractors in the region.
“We are proud to support power generation and transmission needs in the upper mid-west,” said Rob Streeter, president of ABM Equipment. “The Manitex 50-ton solution is the perfect tool to service wind farm sites and act as a rapid deployment tool, supporting multiple job sites per day.”
ABM has acquired 17 Manitex machines in the past year and has a goal to increase its rental fleet.
