ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Maintains Commitment to New Equipment Acquisitions

Industry Crane Leader Adds New Manitowoc Model 14000 Crawler Cranes

May 23, 2007-As one of the largest privately held crane and equipment rental companies in North America, ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. commits to maintaining the industry's largest and most modern, technologically advanced fleet. Recently, ALL added a substantial number of the first Manitowoc Model 14000 crawler cranes, Manitowoc's latest offering in the 200 t (220 USt) class.

The purchase of the Model 14000 means that, once again, ALL Erection has placed the initial order on one of Manitowoc's new cranes. Significant examples of their many leadership purchases include ALL's taking the first order for the Model 18000, a high-efficiency, high-capacity, 400-metric-ton (440 USt) crane, and the first order for the Model 16000.

The Model 14000 will offer a maximum of 86 m (282 ft) of main boom and a maximum luffing jib of 113.8 m (373 ft). Fixed jib attachments are also available. "We are anxious to get started with these new crawlers," says Michael Liptak, president of ALL Erection & Crane Rental. "We look forward to having the all-around versatility and modern operation of a fully hydraulic crane in this size class."

Every year, ALL expands and upgrades their fleet with the newest, safest, best quality equipment available from the industry's top manufacturers. "To remain an industry leader," says Liptak, "we strive to maintain an updated fleet, but also our strong dedication to safety and service. Manitowoc is one of the companies that supports our efforts in this area."

Since 1964, the ALL family of companies has grown to become one of the largest crane and equipment rental companies in North America. The company offers its fleet of cranes, aerial work platforms, boom trucks, material handlers, and other lift equipment from a great number of strategic locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, providing rental, sales, service, and jobsite analysis to help customers get the right equipment for the job. An important measure of their commitment is meeting or exceeding all pertinent regulatory and safety standards.
