Manitowoc recently appointed two new Potain dealers in the United States. Select Equipment in Richmond Va., and Allstate Crane Rental Co. located in Charleston, S.C., are now authorized to sell the Potain line of self-erecting cranes.

Brad Talley, owner of Select Equipment, said he was excited to receive the authorization.

“I have been fascinated with the Potain self-erecting cranes since I first learned about them,” he said. “I am really glad that I will now be able to offer this fantastic product to my customers. I see a great potential for self-erecting cranes in the southern Virginia area.”

James Linton, owner of Allstate Crane Rental Co., agreed with Talley’s sentiments and added that he expects the Potain line to be popular with his customers.

“This type of crane can be very useful to my customers,” he said. “It will allow me to offer them more lifting options, and it will make my fleet of cranes more versatile and agile.”

Select Equipment will serve the southern Virginia area while Allstate Crane Rental Co. will offer self-erecting cranes in South Carolina.
