Leavitt Cranes Adds Potain Tower Cranes

March 25, 2019

Leavitt Cranes will sell and support Potain self-erecting tower cranes in Washington and Oregon, after being named a dealer by Manitowoc Cranes.

Leavitt is a division of Pacific Northwest Co., and general manager Erick Zampini said that the company is focused on continually improving all aspects of its business, which includes adding quality brands that excel in offering solutions to its customers.

“We are very excited to become an official Potain self-erecting crane dealer and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” Zampini said in a prepared statement. “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. We are extremely optimistic about their impact in this region.”

Self-erecting cranes are gaining popularity in North America, as contractors are increasingly realizing their benefits, particularly for applications such as residential homebuilding, smaller construction projects, utility work and more, according to Manitowoc.

“Leavitt Cranes is a highly regarded company that brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the industry,” said Mike Heacock, VP sales-tower cranes 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.”
