Sims Crane, Tampa, Fla., has appointed Chris Arnold as general manager of its new office in Titusville, Fla.

Arnold is a 20-year crane, rigging, and sling industry veteran. Before joining Sims, he had worked 15 years for Ashley Sling Inc. in several capacities, including territory manager. Arnold joined Sims in 2012 as a crane applications specialist, most recently in the company’s Orlando office.

The Sims Titusville office opened in August to meet current and potential customer needs on the Space Coast and throughout Brevard and Volusia counties. Located at 6855 Tico Rd. in Titusville, the Sims Space Coast office is expected to be staffed by 11 employees and have four or more cranes on site.

“Opening a new office takes a great deal of work and dedication, which is why we tapped Chris to lead our new Space Coast location,” said Dean Sims II, Sims Crane vice president of marketing.
