Preston Rentals expands into crane sector
By Hannah Sundermeyer10 November 2020
Preston Rentals has launched its SuperCrane fleet now available for rent in the United States.The expansion into the crane sector has been a long term vision of the business and will allow Preston Rentals to provide further services and expertise to a broader group of customers, the company said.
“This is an exciting milestone for Preston Rentals and a suitable next step in our ongoing growth,” said John Krane, crane manager, Preston Rentals in the USA. ”We have listened to the market and understand their needs. We have extensive knowledge and global learnings of crane capabilities plus we have the staff to ensure customers get the best service available. I look forward to seeing our gear on sites and delivering efficiencies to our customers.”
The introduction of crane rental in the United States will complement the company’s SuperDeck retractable loading platform system which has been a widely used material handling solution on jobsites in the USA for 15 years.
There are five Preston Rentals US service centres, in California, Nevada, Texas, Tennessee and the newly opened SuperCrane service centre in Littleton, Colorado.
“The fleet was assembled as a cost-saving alternative for customers with unique site challenges,” added Krane. “Our machines are particularly useful when a site requires a minimal crane footprint, minimal ground bearing pressure or crane placement on elevated work surfaces such as parking structures and rooftops” he said.
In addition to the USA, Preston operates in Europe, New Zealand and Australia, where it is headquartered.
