Aspen Equipment Moves Into Newly Built Facility in Omaha

Wed December 17, 2008 - Midwest Edition

Aspen Equipment moved from its previously leased building to a newly built facility in December.

The more than 20,000-sq.-ft. truck equipment installation and service facility features a dozen 50- to 60-ft. long and 20-ft. wide bays.

Each bay is served by up to two 7.5 ton overhead hoists to accommodate the heaviest picks and expedite crane service and installation opportunities.

The property is located on nearly 5 acres of fenced and paved land and sits in a prime location in Omaha’s west side Commerce Business Centre at 11475 South 153rd Street.

“Our recent acquisition of the Manitowoc and Grove Crane lines in Nebraska and Iowa, in addition to our growing National Crane and Auto Crane lines necessitates this expansion” said Steve Sill, president and owner of Aspen. “We built this new Omaha facility to give Aspen the opportunity to stock more inventory for speedy delivery and provide parts and service to our customers in this region.”

Aspen added a new 17,000 sq.-ft. facility in the Des Moines region in 2003 and expanded its Minneapolis headquarters to 60,000 sq.-ft. in 2001.

“The new facility depicts our long term commitment to the Nebraska and Iowa regional marketplaces,” Sill said. “This facility is designed for the future with expansion opportunities like a zip-off back wall that will allow for 6,600 additional square feet as our penetration into this market grows.

“Aspen has worked hard to develop and maintain its image of top quality lines, knowledgeable people and best service. We chose the tag line ’The Strength to Deliver’ because we believe that our more than 80 years in business says a lot about our abilities to stay the course in these trying times and beyond.”
