Sims Crane & Equipment, leading Florida crane rental and rigging service company, has opened a new, permanent location with 10 employees in Tallahassee, Fla.

The branch includes a 3,000-square-foot facility, currently undergoing upgrades and branding, on a three-acre site. The manager of Sims Crane Tallahassee is Kent Harvey.

“Like many cities throughout Florida, Tallahassee is experiencing an increased rate of vertical construction,” said Dean Sims II, Sims Crane vice president of marketing. “This vertical construction, coupled with projects in the power generation sector, made now the right time to establish a permanent location in Tallahassee.”

Sims Crane & Equipment now has 13 locations statewide.
