SC&RA Honors the Late George Bragg with Achievement Award

George Bragg, longtime president of Bragg Crane Service, Long Beach, Calif., was the posthumous recipient of the Golden Achievement Award during the SC&RA Annual Conference, April 21-25, at La Quinta Resort, La Quinta, Calif. He passed away March 28. This award pays tribute to the individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the specialized carriers and rigging industry. Because of the award's significance, the association does not issue it every year.

"George Bragg has made countless industry contributions throughout the country and abroad," said SC&RA Chairman Randy Goddard. “His contributions to SC&RA are extensive. The winner has been known as a tough negotiator, a stickler to details, and a very successful individual in his business and, more importantly, with his family, friends and colleagues...No matter what he did or where he went in business or life, he earned and commanded respect and treated all those who know him with the same degree of courtesy and respect."

Bragg was active in the crane and rigging and specialized transportation industry for over 40 years. He rose through the ranks at the association from chair of the Crane & Rigging Group to become SC&RA chairman for 1990-91. In recent years, he had been active on the association's board of directors, the Insurance Committee and the EN13000 Task Force. Accepting the award was his son Scott Bragg, a member of SC&RA's board of directors, joined by George’s wife, Marilynn, son Chris and daughter Suzanne.
