Based in Birmingham, CraneWorks offers cranes ranging from 2 to 500-ton capacity for sale and rental, as well as rigging, machinery moving, specialty hauling and equipment storage services.

“We are super excited to partner with such an excellent team,” said Kenny Bishop, president, CraneWorks. “We have been renting and servicing cranes for over 30 years, so becoming a distributor for the number one brand is a natural fit for us to better serve our customers.”

CraneWorks has a wide range of Tadano cranes in stock and on the way, including several rough terrain machines as well as 3-, 4- and 5-axle all terrain cranes.

“We are so excited to work with Kenny and the CraneWorks team to assist them with new equipment purchases, service and parts,” said Todd Elkins, regional business manager, Tadano America. “This expansion in the Tadano distributor network will be a benefit for existing and new customers in Alabama. CraneWorks has an impressive customer base and track record across the state, and this partnership will help grow both of our businesses.”
