Bigge Crane and Rigging is opening new branches in Los Angeles and Denver, the crane rental company said this week. The Los Angeles area branch will be in nearby La Mirada, south of downtown L.A. The L.A. branch will specialize in operated and maintained crane rental, while the Denver facility will focus on bare rental.
The Los Angeles branch will include hydraulic truck cranes, ranging in capacity up to 350 tons; rough-terrain units up to 130 tons; crawler cranes up to 440-ton capacity; tower cranes and support equipment such as man and material hoists, rigging, storage and transportation. Combined with Bigge’s northern California location, the company now has one of the largest crane fleets in the state.
The Denver branch will offer bare rough-terrain and crawler crane leasing. “Our customers have demanded we bring a location to the Rockies region for some time,” said Bigge vice president of sales Joe Nelms. “We felt this was the right time to expand to that area and are happy to be creating jobs in the region.”
Based in San Leandro, Calif., Bigge Crane and Rigging now has 13 locations.
