Essex Crane Rental said this week that its subsidiary, Coast Crane Co., will distribute Tadano rough terrain and all-terrain cranes in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii, as well as the Yukon Territory, Guam and the Marshall Islands. Coast Crane already represents Tadano boom trucks and Tadano Mantis telescopic crawler cranes throughout its West Coast territory.

“Coast Crane has enjoyed its relationship with Tadano America while representing their boom truck line,” said Terry Howard, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Coast Cranes.

“The assignment of Coast Crane significantly enhances Tadano’s aftermarket customer support within the territory,” added Ron Dogotch, vice president and general manager of Tadano America. "We are excited to have the impressive sales, service and customer support capabilities of Coast Crane representing Tadano.”

Coast Crane has placed a significant order for Tadano rough terrain cranes worth about $10 million for use in its rental fleet.

Seattle-based Coast Crane, No. 34 on the RER 100, was recently acquired by No. 40 Essex Crane Rental Corp.
