Included in the order were 12 new all terrain cranes from Grove and Liebherr, including a 600 tonne Liebherr LTM 1500.8, the third to be added to the Bay Crane fleet. In addition, the company also ordered 14 rough terrain cranes from Tadano, including the new 160 US ton (145 tonne) capacity GR 1600 XL. According to a company spokesperson, half the order has been delivered, with the remaining cranes scheduled for delivery in the latter half of 2014.
In addition to expanding its crane fleet, the company has also added eight new Kenworth heavy haul tractors and 32 axle lines of Goldhofer self propelled electronically steered modular transporter. An additional 80 flat bed and low bed trailers have also been added to the fleet.
The crane rental company is also expanding its services and has announced it has opened a new branch facility in Carlstadt, New Jersey.
