Acme Lift, Mesa, Ariz., has promoted industry veteran Jeff Heep to vice president of service and maintenance. The promotion brings Heep's years of experience and high standards to the company’s entire re‐rental fleet, which includes many of the larger aerial work platforms and telehandlers in North America.

Before being promoted, Heep had been rental and product-support manager for Acme Lift's Gulf Coast region, where he built a reputation for providing customers with quality boom lifts and telehandlers.

“Jeff has been in the trenches since 2004 with Acme Lift’s equipment, and he places top priority on our customers,” said Mike Crouch, Acme Lift president and chief operating officer.

“He’s affectionately known as our ‘MacGyver,’ proving over the years to be an essential link between our customers’ needs and our success," said Crouch.

“My primary focus is to take care of our customers’ needs and get the job done,” Heep said. “I have prided myself in getting to know all our customers in the Gulf Coast region, personally connecting with them and providing them the best service. Now I’m looking forward to doing that throughout the United States and Canada.”

Since coming into the industry in 1981, Heep has worked for various rental companies, including Ameco, NationsRent (now Sunbelt Rentals), as well as equipment manufacturer JLG Industries Inc.

Acme Lift, a privately owned company based in Mesa, Ariz., has a large selection of big boom lifts reaching heights to 185 ft. and the latest 8,000‐ to 40,000‐lb. telehandlers for re‐rent at daily, weekly or monthly rates.
