Walter Payton Power Equipment (WPPE) has completed construction of a new facility in Lebanon, Ind., just south of its previous Lebanon location. The new location is on 4 acres of land, making it the largest dedicated crane repair facility in Indiana and Kentucky. It is visible from Interstate I-65 and boasts significant improvements that will help better serve Manitowoc, Grove and National Crane customers.

"This new facility is a great expansion for WPPE and will enable us to further improve upon our best-in-class service and support for the Manitowoc, Grove and National Crane ranges," said Brian Lynch, general manager at WPPE. "We have increased parts inventory and storage areas that will include on-hand inventory for these cranes, and we will be conducting the necessary training to support them at our new in-house training center, whether it be service, repairs, refurbishments or any other requests."

WPPE's new facility features an 18,000 sq. ft. shop area that has a brand new, cutting-edge paint booth that spans 70 ft. in length, 25 ft. in width and 23 ft. in height. It is designed to handle up to an eight-axle all-terrain crane. There are two 120 by 30 ft. drive-through bays, each spanned by two, 20 ton-capacity overhead cranes. The new facility is capable of handling equipment that ranges from small carry deck cranes to larger crawler cranes, and its location makes it easier for customers to pick up and deliver equipment to the company.

"We congratulate our partner WPPE on its new facility and applaud the company's dedication to providing the ultimate service and support experience for Manitowoc, Grove and National Crane," said David Hull, vice president Americas sales at Manitowoc. "This new location will be a great benefit for customers in the Indiana and Kentucky regions, and they can rest assured that WPPE has the expertise to support all of their crane needs."
