Raimondi Cranes SpA has named Heavy Lift Designs (HLD) as the official seller of its topless tower and luffing jib cranes in New Zealand. Founded by in 2014 by Blake Hammon, managing director, HLD will sell and service Raimondi cranes on the North and South Islands from its New Zealand headquarters in Wellington services the North and South Islands. The company has already been successful with the product in New South Wales, Australia.
“New Zealand is my home, so I’ve always had a keen interest in the country’s construction market and economic prospects,” Hammon said. “I see New Zealand as the opportune place for HLD to launch new technologies; there is substantial activity in the construction and engineering sectors with room for a successful entrepreneurial-driven market entry. I’ve noticed a trickle-down of machinery and technologies from similar projects in Australia into New Zealand’s market, and I believe our Wellington office is well-positioned to capitalize on this increasing level of interest.”
HLD, as a specialist tower and crane engineering company, provides end-to-end crane engineering solutions including technical lift planning, erection, dismantle, and site planning, along with feasibility assessments, third-party verification and equipment sourcing.
