CraneWorks Inc., a leading provider of lifting solutions, announced the opening of new locations in Orlando, Fla., and Dallas/Fort Worth. The crane rental company has opened four branches in the past three years and in addition to its Houston headquarters, has branches in Kansas City; Denver; San Diego and Bakersfield, Calif.; New York/New Jersey; and Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

CEO Keith Ayers announced the new branches.

CraneWorks opened the two new locations to expand its regional presence and serve these two continually expanding markets, Ayers said, citing a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Timetric’s Construction Intelligence Center’s predictions that the construction industry has a 4.5 percent projected growth rate through 2020.

“Providing industry-leading product support to our customers is important,” said Ayers. “Our new stores in Dallas/Fort Worth and Orlando expand our footprint to provide our customers with fast, local access to parts, service and rentals.”

Craneworks selected a pair of industry veterans to lead the new offices. Peter Rocco will be general manager for CraneWorks Orlando, and Jerry Beckel will serve as general manager for CraneWorks Dallas/Fort Worth. Rocco and Beckel bring more than a half century of combined experience in industrial management to their roles.

CraneWorks was founded in 2002 and offers new and used equipment, manufacturer-backed and trained service, expensive parts inventories for all makes and a modern rental fleet serving the energy sector, municipal and infrastructure construction, residential construction, foundations, precast, material handling, commercial lighting and signage, governmental work and utilities. CraneWorks offers specific market expertise in fluids management and hydro-excavation, railway service and aerial platform access equipment.
