WHECO Corporation, Richland, Wash., has opened crane service center in Houston, Texas, in an effort to meet demand for the company’s services in the south central United States.
Strategically located to service a large geographic area, the 3.5-acre, 38,600 square-foot facility will accommodate WHECO’s full turnkey crane repair and restoration capabilities.
“While we are well-known nationally, we saw a need in the market for a full-service facility in the Gulf Coast region,” said Ron Williams, WHECO Chairman and CEO.
The new facility plans to house a full fabrication and hydraulic service center, as well as a full-service machine shop and multiple service bays specializing in turnkey accident restoration. WHECO also plans to add rapid response field service capabilities that will focus on computer and electronic repairs.
Williams said the new facility will allow the company’s technicians to work in a controlled environment to perform WHECO’s specialized services. “In Houston, we will be able to do everything we are able to do at our Washington, South Carolina and California facilities.”
For more than 30 years, WHECO Corporation has been providing time- and cost-effective engineered structural repair solutions that are compliant, certifiable, guaranteed and warranted.
The company has facilities in Richland and Seattle, Wash., Santa Fe Springs, Calif., Aiken, S.C., and Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
