When Cranes, Inc. was founded back in the Post-Depression days of 1940, it started with a fleet of Link-Belt truck cranes and serviced the metropolitan New York area. Under the stewardship of Paul Weiss, and currently Paul's son, Larry, and grandson, Robert, today the company has expanded to become one of the major crane rental houses in the entire Northeast region.
“We have tried to position ourselves to service all areas of the construction industry,” says president, Larry Weiss. “Our mission is to provide our customers with the most complete and up-to-date fleet available. Towards that end, we have heavily invested in new technology in recent years, often being the first company in the country, if not the world, to introduce new models from major manufacturers. In fact, we were a pioneer with Liebherr, showcasing the first LR 1400’s, LR 1350’s and LTC 1055-3.1’s in America.”
Adds vice president Robert Weiss, “To complement our fleet, we employ a highly skilled and well trained staff of mechanics. Our service manager, Robert Serrone, has been with Cranes, Inc. for over 30 years and has received extensive training at the Liebherr factories in Ehingen, Germany, and Nenzing, Austria. Cranes, Inc. is proud to offer our customers a modern fleet of equipment backed by a true commitment to service.”
