ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 27, 2015) – Bigfoot Crane Company is pleased to announce two industry achievements as determined by American Cranes & Transport (ACT), a US-based monthly publication dedicated to the North American crane and transport industry.
ACT’s 2015 annual industry survey of tower crane companies garnered a greater than 70 percent response rate. Bigfoot Crane made the Top Twenty list, placing 13th overall according to the tower crane index, which is the sum of the maximum load moment rating of all the cranes in a fleet measured in tonne-meters. Bigfoot Crane was one of only four Canadian companies to achieve this ranking and was also the only company on the list with one depot (location).
“This is the first year we’ve placed on ACT’s list and we couldn’t be prouder,” says Ryan Burton, Managing Partner at Bigfoot Cranes. “When you look at the caliber of the other companies we were competing with, this makes the achievement even more impressive. It also speaks directly to the dedicated, professional team that makes up Bigfoot Crane.”
The accolades don’t stop there. Bigfoot Crane also ranked 8th in ACT’s Top Ten Largest Number In Fleet, with an impressive 52 tower cranes listed. With a strong focus on maximizing on-site performance, Bigfoot rounds out the fleet with the San Marco SMT 550.
“At Bigfoot Crane, we’re always striving to be one of the best crane companies, from both a product and service standpoint. The results of this survey help reinforce that – not just for us but for the industry as well.”
