The cranes, all of them RT 555-1 rough terrain cranes, come as the result of increased demand and will be destined to several job sites and locations across the United States.
Al Bove, COO, AmQuip said: "We organized our team of crawler experts, fleet managers and project principals to review all of the cranes available in this class. After a lengthy and well thought through process our team unanimously decided that the 3800 was overall the best crane offered in this class. AmQuip purchased the crane with all available options, including luffing jib and mobile counterweight wagon."
This investment is part of AmQuip's strategy to invest in high quality equipment to deliver effective and efficient solutions to its customers. Jon Capuzzi, chief product officer, said, "With project work increasing, AmQuip wanted to set itself apart from the competition. Knowing Terex's product is proven; AmQuip's team decided that purchasing the SL3800 will be a solution for AmQuip customer's lifting requirements."
A very popular rough terrain crane model worldwide, the Terex RT 555-1 is a staple in petrochemical and general construction job sites."
"AmQuip is continuously growing their customer base. With our rough terrain fleet cranes currently experiencing high utilization rates, we decided to add 24 units of this dependable horse to our fleet," said Capuzzi.
