By Euan Youdale27 July 2009
Hercules Crane Hire, based in Port Hedland, Leonora and Newman, will extend Mammoet's presence in Western Australia (WA) and increase the company's client base, said the company.
Greg Roberts, who formally headed up the Hercules crane hire and heavy lift brands, has been named managing director of the crane rental division, which is operating as Hercules Crane Hire, a division of Mammoet Australia.
"The addition of Hercules is expanding Mammoet Australia's current footprint within the WA hydraulic crane hire business. Shortly, Hercules will commence operations in Karratha, in support of Mammoet's project at Woodside's Pluto Project and to provide a quality option to other clients in that region," said Mammoet.
Ben Schulte will remain responsible for the project division in his role as managing director.
