U.S. crane rental company Maxim Crane Works has added more than 30 new rough terrain cranes to its fleet so far this year as part of a multi-million dollar fleet expansion plan.
The new rough terrain cranes were received in the first quarter of 2014, with more units set to join the fleet later in the year. The new cranes include Grove and Link-Belt products and range in size from 50-ton to 130-ton.
“We have invested over $70 million in new equipment over the last 18 months,” said Larry Lis, vice president of the northeast region for Maxim Crane. “This significant investment in our fleet, as well as the addition of experienced crane sales reps, technicians and support equipment, emphasizes our commitment to our customers, our team and our confidence in the U.S. crane rental market.”
Central Region President Randy Johnston said Maxim's ability to react to customers' and jobsite needs on a 24/7 basis is critical in today's market.
“Our team is able to communicate instantly with our national branch network to deploy the cranes to the jobsite within the regions and across the country as needed”, he stated. “Our continuous evaluation of our customers needs and our ability to listen to the 'voice of the customer' enables us to plan our purchases and work with the manufacturers to ensure that we have the most state-of-the art equipment, modernized fleet and ability to provide lifting solutions that ensure the safest and most beneficial crane rental-customer partnership in the industry."
