Bigge Crane and Rigging, a large heavy construction contractor and rental provider recently opened its Gulf Coast headquarters in Houston.
Bigge’s newest location is situated to service the Houston petrochemical markets as well as the growing industrial and wind power sectors in the region. The new headquarters will offer crane rental in Houston as well as heavy rigging and heavy transportation throughout Texas and the South. Bigge’s Houston location will also serve as an anchor location for international crane sales through the Port of Houston.
Bigge has a sizable rental fleet, including crawler, tower, and rough terrain cranes, along with man and material hoists. Bigge Gulf Coast will have its own dedicated rental and sales staff. Bigge intends to develop its Houston location into a second worldwide hub for crane sales.
“Our current location in Houston couldn’t keep up with our work load,” said Joe Nelms, vice president of sales and marketing. “Adding to our fleet and moving to this new complex will help us satisfy the demand not just for crane rental, but for heavy transportation and crane sales as well.”
Bigge now has staffed locations in seven states -- California, Utah, Washington, Arizona, Texas, South Carolina and Virginia.
Bigge Crane and Rigging specializes in heavy lift, heavy rigging and specialized transportation projects for the refinery, petrochemical, power and civil infrastructure industries. Its headquarters are in San Leandro, Calif.
