The Northern Territory Crane Association (NTCA) has been launched in Darwin, Australia.

Among the group of industry professionals at the opening were John Gillespie, Crane Industry Council of Australia president, and Alan Marshall, chief executive officer.

"I appreciated the important opportunity to talk to the locals and the interstate guests about the benefits of state and national industry associations - and the good work of CICA's activities across Australia. A lot of hard work is undertaken by association volunteer committees on behalf of members and the broader industry and, along with many others, I am passionate and positive about this industry and the future," said Gillespie.

NTCA vice president Cheryl Woodhart, from Hiab, was handed a plaque to commemorate the launch.

"This is a significant step forward for the Northern Territory operators and one that has been in the development pipeline for some time thanks to key industry leaders. There is some hard work ahead, especially to get the local industry to really step up, understand and get behind the new association but, strategically, having the NTCA can only be good for the industry. And, of course, CICA is keen to lend a guiding hand as the association grows," added Marshall.
