Crane Service Inc. recently took delivery of it's new Grove GMK 7550.

Albuquerque, NM-based Crane Service, Inc. hosted an open house on June 24 to introduce its newest crane to its US customers. The Grove GMK7550 will be put to work in the growing New Mexico industrial market. Crane Service said it was the largest crane in the state.

The Grove GMK7550 has an overall lifting capacity of 550 tons and maximum tip height of 450 feet.

Scott Wilson, president of Crane Service Inc., said the crane will provide help to various types of industries ranging from the Copper Mine in Silver City, NM, a wind farm near Hatch, NM and natural gas and coal power plants in the Farmington area, to Intel in Albuquerque. All of these industries require maintenance and capital projects to stay operational, the company said.

"The ability to have access to such a large piece of equipment and deliver to our clients at such a quick pace will provide benefits not only to our company, but to those we are working with," Wilson said.
