Sany America last week announced its partnership with Coast Crane Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Essex Rental Corp., to extend the dealership agreement of its mobile crane distribution network into California.
“Coast Crane has built an expansive dealership business and is a recognized leader for crane sales, rental and after market support,” said Jack Tang, president of Sany America. “We are honored to partner with their business and we are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
Coast Crane has grown over the past 42 years to include 11 full-service locations. The company supplies lifting equipment to a wide range of projects, including power generation, petro-chemical, refineries, water treatment and purification, transportation, industrial plants, and commercial and residential construction.
“Sany has made a tremendous commitment to serving the American markets, and we look forward to representing their brand,” said Terry Howard, president of Coast Crane. “We are excited to partner with Sany to provide our customers with quality lifting equipment at competitive prices. This is consistent with our strategy to help our customers complete their projects on time and under budget.”
In addition to crawler and rough-terrain cranes, Sany America markets concrete pump trucks, excavators and port machinery in North America. Last fall, the company announced it will build a $25 million R&D center alongside its 400,000-square-foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility. When complete, the site will employ 300 hydraulic and mechanical engineers.
Sany America is headquartered in Peachtree City, Ga.
