ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. has added a total of 66 new Link-Belt cranes to its national fleet. The package deal includes 14 truck cranes, 32 rough terrain cranes and 20 crawler cranes.
Of the package and, in particular, the size of the deal, Michael Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies, said, “It’s a huge deal, but a regular part of our annual fleet expansion. Doing such a large package here in the first quarter reflects more on the surging appetite for cranes.”
The ALL Family has 34 branches spread strategically across its North American footprint, and the new cranes will be delivered and distributed among the branches starting immediately and continuing through 2013.
“The 66 machines are a big buy. Spread out to our branches, the cranes will immediately start answering local needs, from daily rentals to major projects begging for longer-term rentals,” said Liptak.
Crane rental demand is high in all sectors as the economy gradually returns to health. That said, ALL boasts a large and technologically advanced fleet, but “we need to be able to meet surging demand. I’m appreciative of Link-Belt. They are important partners and really worked hard to get this package done,” said Liptak.
