Maxim Crane Adds Heavy-Transportation and Rigging Office in Florida | Construction News

Maxim Crane has expanded its Heavy Transportation and Rigging division with the addition of a new location in Bithlo, Fla.

The state-of-the-art facility is located on nearly 15 acres, provides both inside and outside storage, and is strategically located to provide the eastern United States with complete heavy-haul, rigging, and lifting services.

The team that has been assembled for this location averages more than 20 years of specialty lifting and rigging expertise per person.

“We recognized the need to expand our heavy haul and rigging division for the purposes of customer reach, increase in inventory space, and to dedicate a location that solely concentrates on these services," said Gulf Coast manager, John Boone. "It will allow our team to strategically place equipment throughout our regions and to offer turn-key lifting services." Maxim's array of heavy hauling and rigging equipment includes PST Goldhofer trailers, hydraulic gantries, strand jacks, cantilever beams, jack-and-slide systems, and the alternative lift tower (ALT).

“The expansion into our new heavy-haul headquarters and strategic placement of equipment throughout the country with more than 50 branch locations will allow us to be more competitive, while giving our current customers access to all the services offered by Maxim Crane Works, L.P.,” said Frank Bardonaro, COO. "We have listened to our customers and their need to have a one-stop shop when it comes to the heavy-lift cranes and the equipment packages. This could be anything from a large HVAC project to moving turbines across the region. John Boone and the team have the engineering and operational expertise to ensure the project is completed safely, on time and on budget,” he concluded.
