Shawmut Equipment Company Inc. has opened a new full service facility in South Easton, Mass.
As a Manitowoc Crane Group distributor, Shawmut Equipment Company sells and supports Grove, Manitowoc, National and Potain cranes in the six states of New England and the three Canadian Maritime provinces.
Shawmut Equipment’s new Massachusetts facility provides several acres of yard space for stocking new and used cranes, five large service bays, one wash bay, two parts warehousing areas, sales and service offices, a conference room, and a training room. The staff includes seven mechanics and two salesmen.
The new facility also has six service trucks, all fully stocked with service manuals, welding equipment and parts. They also have laptop computers for diagnostic work.
“We are very proud of the new facility in South Easton, Massachusetts,” Shawmut Equipment President David O’Connell said. “The new facility gives us new and improved resources to better support the crane industry in Massachusetts and throughout New England.”
The new South Easton facility is “much larger. It gives us the opportunity to do larger repairs and large crane overhauls,” said Brian O’Connell.
The new facility is located at 136 Eastman St. (Route 106) in South Easton, Mass., on the South Easton and Mansfield town line. The location offers convenient access from I-95, I-495 and Route 24 and short drives to both Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, R.I.
After purchasing the property in May 2009, Shawmut Equipment completed a complete renovation of the building and property this summer.
Founded in 1957, Shawmut Equipment Company Inc. is a third-generation family business, specializing in the sale, rental and support of construction cranes. Founder George O’Connell’s son, David, is president; grandsons Kevin and Brian are vice presidents. Nephew Joe Vergoni also is a vice president and sales representative
In addition to the new South Easton, Mass., location, Shawmut Equipment has facilities in Manchester, Conn., and Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
