We took delivery of our new Crane this month and as you can imagine, we are very excited about this great asset joining our fleet. No longer are we reliant on either the principal contractor or an external contractor, nor do we have restrictions with regards to the number of loads. Having a maximum extension length of 44 meters, we feel this piece of machinery will not only help us reach heights and areas that otherwise would have been out of reach; but will also help us with our goal to keeping at the forefront of scaffolding within our field.
