US crane rental company Bay Crane is adding 26 new cranes and boosting its transport fleet to support its new branch in Carlstadt New Jersey.
The new cranes included 12 new All Terrain cranes from Grove and Liebherr topped by the company’s third 500 tonne Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1. In addition it has ordered 14 new Rough Terrain cranes from Tadano, topped by the new 145 tonne three axle GR 1600XL, the largest Rough Terrain crane available in the USA. The order expands Bay Cranes all Tadano RT fleet.
Half of the new cranes have already been delivered in the first quarter, while the remaining deliveries are expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter.
The transportation fleet has been increased with eight new heavy duty tractors from Kenworth, 32 additional axle lines of Goldhofer’s self-propelled electronic steered modular transporters, and an additional 80 flatbed and lowed trailers.
Keith Arden operations manager at the new Carlstadt facility said: “Our significant investment in equipment, as well as the addition of multiple operations, project management, and sales professionals, highlights our strong commitment to both our clients and our team members to providing the highest quality of service, personnel and equipment in the region. Bay Crane has proven its ability to grow organically in the Northeast over the last six years and with the addition of the new facility clearly demonstrates our strong commitment to growth and providing the highest quality service to our heavy lift, rental, and transportation customers.”
