After 30 years with Runnion Equipment Company – and plenty of key accomplishments along the way – Guy Tanney is retiring as the company’s longtime, well-known service manager.

“Guy has been a key part of our management team and will be greatly missed,” says Michael Prochot, President at Runnion Equipment. “He is knowledgeable, energetic and always ready to take on any challenge.”

Tanney joined Runnion in 1987 as a mechanic and nine years later was promoted to service manager. Tanney’s accomplishments include developing Runnion’s internal crane inspection guidelines. And in another key role, he supervised the hiring of technicians through the Runnion mentorship program.

“Fortunately, Guy has assured us a smooth transition because he’s personally hired and trained almost all of our technicians,” says Prochot.

Tom Ludwick will replace Tanney as service manager. Ludwick joined Runnion in 2001 as a journeyman mechanic with 20 years of general mechanic and body shop experience.

Runnion Equipment has been selling and servicing boom trucks throughout northern Illinois, northwest Indiana and southern Wisconsin since 1975, the company says.

Manufacturers include National Crane, Manitex, Palfinger, Dur-A-Lift, Boscaro, Heiden and Kinshofer.
