Christmas Party

Mountain Crane Service held its annual Christmas party for employees and families early in December. With almost 300 people in attendance we had quite a crowd to enjoy the various games and activities set up throughout the facility.

A highlight of the evening was a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus who presented each child with a special gift.

Mountain Crane Service wants to thank its employees once again for all their hard work and great attitudes. We have a excellent group of people and consider everyone to be a part of one big, happy family.

Jacobsen Tower Crane

Mountain Crane Service has been partnering with Jacobsen Construction for the dismantling of tower cranes on the City Creek project. The tower crane disassembly shown to the right utilized our LinkBelt LS348 300 Ton crawler crane with 200 feet main boom and 160 feet luffer.

The process of taking the sections apart was particularly difficult due to cold weather and icy conditions. The tower crane was over 300 feet high. Our crews, directed by Travis Horton and Tyson Allen, performed a quick and efficient turn around.

Our cranes can be found downtown dismantling other tower cranes over the next several weeks.

Looking Forward: 2011

We look forward to another good year in 2011. In the past year, we have added both new cranes and new customers. Over the next couple months we hope to follow up on spring projects and help customers find the best crane for their job sites. Our sales and engineering team are available for project walkthroughs.

Pumpkin Shoot

Mountain Crane Service recently participated in the annual White Construction Pumpkin Shoot. Decked out in camo gear, the Mountain Crane guys enjoyed a full day of shooting guns in all shapes and sizes.

The pumpkin featured below was Mountain Crane’s contribution to the event. It weighed over 900 lbs. and was shipped from New York specifically for this event.

Safety Barbeque

Before beginning their Halloween festivities, Mountain Crane Service employees met for a quarterly safety barbeque. Presenters were selected from Operations and Office staff. Topics included PPE, Bills of Lading, Driver’s log books, IFTA fuel logs, and equipment maintenance. The new employee safety incentive program was also introduced, a system which rewards employees for each one hundred hours completed without accident or incident. Each employee was given a safety punch card that can be redeemed for quarterly prizes.

Employees were also recognized for their efforts to complete paperwork and be proactive in meeting customer’s needs.

To conclude the meeting, employees were treated to a full scale barbeque and given pumpkins filled with candy to share with their families.

Mountain Crane continues to focus on safety both on and off the job. For more information on our quarterly safety meetings contact Gary Rehmer at
