Milton CAT selects Mass Crane for its new Londonderry, NH sales and service center

UPLOADED: 10/1/2015

When you think of Milton CAT, you probably think of expertly designed, rugged, well-built, domestically manufactured equipment with a great track record of sales and service. When Milton CAT had to choose a bridge crane company to provide fourteen 5 through 15 Ton bridge cranes and eight 1/2 and 1 Ton jib cranes, they chose Mass Crane, a company with a similar resume.

With spans up to 62 foot, Mass Crane was able to build, paint, and wire all fourteen bridge cranes in a 3-week period in early August, 2015. Weighing up to 14,460 lbs per crane, Mass Crane chose a brand new Genie GTH 1544 Telehandler for the installation. Along with 1,694 linear feet of ASCE 40# crane rail, just under 900 linear feet of conductor bar, and 8 jib cranes, Mass Crane and Hoist completed the structural installation in just over 7 weeks.

As the authorized Caterpillar Dealer in the Northeast, Milton CAT relies on longstanding vendor relationships to provide first class service to our customers. One of these vendors is Mass Crane. I have worked with the folks from Mass Crane for many years and have come to rely on them from initial design and installation to startup and service.

Thanks to coordination between Milton CAT, the construction manager New-Tech, and Mass Crane, the cranes were all erected immediately after the steel and slab were completed and before the electrical/HVAC/sprinkler companies began their work, minimizing disruption to the jobsite. The cranes, which you can see below in the Key Plan, are expected to be tested and commissioned later this fall.
