Here’s more from Dan Pittman, business rental and sales manager with Lifting Gear Hire, North American Operations:
How’s business for Lifting Gear Hire? What do you see as opportunities for growth in 2017?
PITTMAN: Business for the LGH North American Group remains very strong. Heading into 2017, the optimism among our vendors and customers remains high. With the increased spending slated for our country’s infrastructure, we see work expanding on bridges, roadways, and airports. This, in conjunction with positive economic forecasts, lends to solid optimism for 2017 and 2018.
What has influenced Lifting Gear Hire and its product offerings?
PITTMAN: Our customers have been our biggest influence. Over the past 25 years, they have brought new equipment line demands to us on a consistent basis. LGH fills a niche rental market for specialized lifting and rigging equipment. When our customers share their experiences in the field, we listen. Once we find a product that can solve their needs, we don’t hesitate in adding it to our fleet.
In your opinion, what is one facet of business that can make a positive difference in a contractor’s operations?
PITTMAN: Contractors are up against tight deadlines and we all know time is money. If they have the correct tools for their jobs, they can be more competitive, efficient, and successful on all their projects. If all those facets work together, success is inevitable for them.
How does Lifting Gear Hire add benefit for the contractor?
PITTMAN: We specialize in the testing, certification, and inspection of all types of lifting and rigging equipment. Our contractors are great at what they do. If we handle the equipment side of their project where we are great, they can focus on what they do best. It’s a partnership that makes both companies better.
What sets Lifting Gear Hire apart from others in the industry?
PITTMAN: “Put Safety First”—it’s our company slogan and safety is always in the forefront. No one tests, inspects, and certifies equipment like LGH. We are very thorough in our processes and even paint the equipment every time it goes out. Our processes and attention to detail go unmatched.
PITTMAN: We are proud to serve the contractors we do. We feel it is an honor to partner with them and aid in the successful completion of all their projects. From the initial equipment rental needs consultation to assisting in the correct equipment selection to the efficiency of our quote processing, all the way down to our rental locations and distribution systems, we ensure that the right rental equipment is delivered to the right place at the right time.■
