Tight quarters lifting was not a
problem for the SPX424 Jekko minicrane Malvern Glass rented from Stephenson Equipment for the Haverford College project.
Stephenson Equipment Inc. (SEI) announced a sales partnership with JekkoUSA, exclusive distributor of Jekko minicranes.
SEI will offer Jekko's minicranes to businesses through its six locations across Pennsylvania and New York. SEI brings 60 years of experience in the sale and rental of heavy equipment — including crane and lifting machinery — to the partnership.
Jekko minicranes are compact crawler cranes equipped with retractable, stabilizing outriggers ideal for operating in interior project spaces. Jekkos give operators lifting capacities ranging from 1.2 to 8.0 tons (1 to 7.2 t)
"Stephenson is the perfect fit for Jekko," said Mike Brooks Jr., minicrane specialist with JekkoUSA and Jekko training coordinator of the SEI staff. "SEI is a well-respected business that has served the Pennsylvania and New York lifting markets for decades. We're very excited about the potential of this partnership."
Darrick Marris, branch manager at SEI Syracuse, noted that Jekko minicranes will be a good addition to the company's offerings.
"Jekkos' pinpoint accuracy, control and stability have been widely used in the glass handling industry, and have proven extremely useful in many more fields, like utilities, restoration, steel work and more."
"You can't match Jekko's quality," added Darin D'Ascanio, territory manager, SEI Philadelphia. "They set up quickly and offer multiple outrigger configurations that let them get the work done in very confined spaces."
Malvern Glass, based in Malvern, Pa., recently rented a SPX424 Jekko minicrane from Stephenson to place glass for a renovation project for Haverford College in Haverford, Pa., located just outside Philadelphia. The college is renovating the old gym into an innovative new center for visual culture, arts and media.
D'Ascanio said "The Jekko worked perfect for Malvern Glass. The SPX424 only needs a normal single door opening to enter a space."
Stephenson Equipment will be a full service dealer partner with Jekko. They have several SPX424 Jekko's across their locations in Pennsylvania and New York. SEI will be housing parts and will service the line.
