Auctioning of Pink Boom Truck will Give Cancer Research a Lift | Construction News

Fascan International, Baltimore, Md., the U.S. distributor of Fassi articulating cranes, and V&H Inc- Heavy Trucks, Marshfield, Wis., will auction a one-of-a-kind, “Reaching for a Cure” pink boom truck on April 29 during the 2015 Intex Expo in Long Beach, Calif.

All proceeds from the sale of the boom truck will benefit the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation of Marshfield, Wis., and that organization’s effort toward finding a cure for breast cancer. Bids will be accepted at the Intex Expo, at the V&H booth (#449) until 5:30 on Wednesday, April 29, when a winning entry will be drawn. 

The boom truck, a Western Star 4700SB with a Fassi 360SE.24 wallboard crane, was designed by V&H Trucks and has an estimated value of more than $312,000.

“We wanted to use our expertise in fabricating this kind of vehicle to support the Marshfield Clinic Research Fund and the important work of diagnosing and treating cancer,” said Tim Wolf, general sales manager at V&H Inc-Heavy Trucks. “Designing, building and selling this truck will raise a lot of awareness in a very different marketplace.”
