Custom Truck & Equipment buys 75 National Crane boom trucks at CONEXPO 2017
Custom Truck & Equipment, a division of Utility 1 Source, has finalized a deal at CONEXPO 2017 to add 75 National Crane boom trucks to its fleet. The Kansas City, Missouri-based company will primarily use the cranes in its rental fleet, which provides bare rentals to a variety of industries, including oil and gas, utility, construction, tree service and rail. The boom truck order is comprised of several models from across the National Crane range.
Manitowoc Cranes and Custom Truck & Equipment have had a close working relationship for approximately 15 years. The two companies celebrated both the purchase of the new cranes and their successful partnership with a ceremony at the Manitowoc booth in Las Vegas, complete with a champagne toast. Manitowoc also presented the company with a customized, hand-painted hard hat, designed by famed helmet designer Troy Lee.
