In the Pacific Northwest, tower cranes are almost as plentiful as the skyscrapers they are building. They blend in with the landscape as global technology giants like Amazon and Google expand their operations in Seattle, and Nike adds to its worldwide headquarters near Portland. To meet the region’s demands, NessCampbell Crane + Rigging announces it is expanding its business with a new Tower Crane Division.
“This is a very natural progression in our growth pattern, as we continue to build a strong and diverse company that offers our customers many options for their lift-rig-haul-engineer solutions,” said John Anderson, president of NessCampbell.
The 70-year-old crane rental company will offer full package solutions to contractors, including tower crane erection, dismantle, rental, and operators; aerial lift erection, dismantle, and operators; engineering and lift plans; and qualified and certified lift directors, riggers, and signalpersons. The company has partnered with Morrow and Coast Crane to supply the tower cranes.
“The ability to offer full-package tower crane services to customers will simplify the process and make our customers more efficient,” he said. “We have the capabilities of taking on the project as a whole and provide customers with a full package for their lift solutions, or we can supply just the operator.”
Initially, Anderson and current key employees at NessCampbell are leading the division, with plans to formalize the personnel structure as it grows.
The company adds that the division will also be supported by its leading safety program and professionals, project managers, a wide range of equipment ranging from 3 to 600 tons, and experienced operators and ironworkers. NessCampbell also announced this week that it has a new partnership with the Ironworkers District Council of the Pacific Northwest.
