Expansion at Emerson Crane Hire
By Sarah Ann McCay29 April 2012
Emerson Crane Hire in the UK will create 25 jobs following the purchase of two new Liebherr cranes worth £2.5 million (US$ 4 million).
The London-based firm has acquired 90 and 200 tonne capacity Liebherr all terrain mobiles, due for delivery at its Dagenham yard in June of this year.
Senior managers from Liebherr visited the Emerson site in March to finalise the deal. They were welcomed by Emerson staff and Milton Mckenzie, Barking and Dagenham's mayor.
Emerson Crane Hire has also purchased half an acre of land opposite its current premises for £500,000 (US$ 810,000), which it plans to use as a crane yard.
The family-run business is undergoing a period of rapid growth, and is also currently seeking crane operators, lorry drivers and supervisors.
Emerson Crane Hire was founded by Edward Clancy in 1991. In addition to crane rental, the company offers equipment repairs, specialist transport, manufacturing and testing, and storage and installation.
