Sims Crane & Equipment has opened a new location, the company’s 12th in the state, at 6855 Tico Rd. in Titusville, FL. By the end of the year, the Sims’ Space Coast office should support 11 employees with at least four crane units on site, according to a recent press release.
“We have long identified the Space Coast as a market we needed to service with a home base to become more involved with the aerospace industry and Port Canaveral,” said Dean Sims II, Sims Crane vice president of marketing. “Opening a full-service office in Titusville provides better local access to existing and potential clients, with faster emergency response time for after-hours work.”
The new Space Coast location, which opened August. 1, includes an acre of parking with room to accommodate additional cranes as needed. Cranes to be located at the Sims Space Coast office include new all-terrain cranes by Tadano: two 75-ton ATF 70G-4, a 110-ton ATF 100G-5, and a 240-ton ATF 200G-5.
Sims Crane tapped Chris Arnold, who has been located in the company’s Orlando office, to lead the team in Titusville.
“The new Sims office in Titusville is ideally located in the center of the Space Coast region and is easily accessible to all of Brevard and Volusia counties,” said Arnold. “With exciting new construction projects, like those related to both space exploration and expansion of the port, it was the right time to open a Sims Crane office here.”
The Sims Crane Titusville office is part of the company’s expansion strategy that also includes the acquisition of the nation’s largest fleet of Tadano all terrain cranes, the company said.
