Crainco Helps City of Downey Transport Concrete Benches from Spain

By on

Crainco and a local general contractor teamed up with the City of Downey to pick up, load, transport and place three concrete benches manufactured in Spain, as well as other miscellaneous items to the Arts Plaza in Downtown Downey.

The three imported benches and equipment were managed by Crainco from the pick-up point at the City of Downey’s storage yard. Crainco loaded the benches for their transportation division to safely move them for approximately three miles to the downtown plaza.

The team at Crainco utilized a 50-ton Manitex 5096S Boom Truck Crane from its crane fleet, and a company tractor trailer for the transport.

The project required that Crainco work alongside the city architect to coordinate the job, as well as oversee traffic control planning, to ensure traffic in the downtown area was minimally impacted and access to businesses was not hindered.

Once the items arrived in Downey, Crainco was responsible for rigging them safely to make sure no damage occurred. Working closely with city officials, Crainco was responsible for safely craning and positioning the items into their final location.

For over 30 years, Crainco has been a leading provider in the crane and rigging industry, also offering transportation and logistics for heavy cargo, freight and machinery across Southern California.
