JekkoUSA announced today that it has added Syracuse-based Empire Crane Company as a minicrane dealer for the northeastern U.S., including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.
Empire Crane will sell and support the full range of Jekko products, from telescopic-boom mini cranes, to tracked knuckleboom cranes, and mini-pick-and-carry cranes.
Founded in 2002, Empire Crane specializes in the sales and service of an extensive range of lifting products, including all-terrain, rough-terrain, carry-deck, crawler, and truck cranes, as well as boom trucks, and telescopic handlers. Empire Crane maintains facilities in North Syracuse, New York, Bridgewater, New Jersey, and Holbrook, Massachusetts.
“Empire Crane owners Luke and Paul Lonergan have committed to making Jekko a success in their fleet, as they have with a host of other crane products,” said Mike Faloney, Operations Manager, JekkoUSA. “We’re proud to add their more than 20 years of crane expertise to the network of Jekko dealers in the U.S., and we look forward to a long, productive relationship.”
Faloney adds that the addition of Empire Crane comes at a time when minicrane usage and sales is showing signs of increased growth in the traditional sectors like glass handling and steel construction, as well as in the areas of tree care, airplane service and maintenance, utility operations and more.
