Leavitt Cranes, a division of the Pacific Northwest Company, is the newest Potain crane dealer.
The Washington-based dealer has been tapped by Manitowoc Cranes to sell and support its Potain self-erecting cranes in both its home state and Oregon. Manitowoc says Leavitt will also provide consultation and training.
“Self-erecting cranes offer a lot of benefits that can boost our customers’ efficiency and productivity. They are easy to transport, erect and operate, and they can cover a lot of a job site from their compact footprints,” says Erick Zampini, general manager at Leavitt Cranes. “We are extremely optimistic about their impact in this region.”
Manitowoc says it has seen the popularity of self-erecting cranes grow in North America, particularly for homebuilding, utility work and small construction projects.
“Leavitt Cranes is a highly regarded company that brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the industry,” said Mike Heacock, vice president of tower crane sales at Manitowoc. “Potain customers expect the highest levels of service and support on the market, and we are confident that Leavitt Cranes has the kind of seasoned expertise that can make a real difference for lifting companies.”
