JekkoUSA exhibited several of its glass-handling mini cranes at the Glass Build America Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 9-11. JekkoUSA is the exclusive U.S. distributor of Jekko minicranes.
JekkoUSA showed off its MPK20W+ with an MR800 glass manipulator, and the SPX312 for the show’s more than 8,000 attendees. Jekko minicranes are compact crawler cranes designed to provide lifting and maneuvering capabilities in confined work areas. Each Jekko is ideal for operating in interior project spaces while still giving operators lifting capacities ranging from 1.2 to 4.0 tons.
Both of the exhibited Jekkos were especially suited for lifting and installing glass panels, curtain walls and many other glass applications. Each offers precision control, safety, and an industry-leading service and support network.
“We’re extremely proud to have displayed these minicranes at a venue like Glass Build America,” said Rich Caudill, JekkoUSA’s service manager. “Jekko’s unique capabilities earned a ‘Best in Show’ recognition at Glass Build America 2012, and we’re glad to be reintroducing them to companies who may not realize they need this kind of equipment.”
JekkoUSA shared its exhibit space with its “sister” company, JMGUSA, which was making its first trip to GlassBuild America.
