Capco joins CMAA

Categories: Uncategorized |

Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. became the first New England based crane builder to join CMAA. Capco was accepted to the CMAA organization last year after a rigorous approval process. By joining CMAA, Capco became a part of an elite organization of crane builders in the USA. CMAA member companies make up the best and the brightest crane builders in the industry.

Since Capco was started we set the standard for building cranes in New England. Now, with CMAA as a platform we can help influence the next generation of crane builders all over the USA and beyond. CMAA membership brings along a responsibility to continue to manufacture bridge cranes of the absolute highest quality and constantly push our own standards higher and higher. CMAA membership also provides us “first look” at the latest information in our industry, whether its new technology or changes in industry rules and regulations. For example, CMAA has recently published newly revised specifications including “Spec 78” which applies to properly servicing and maintaining overhead bridge cranes. Any company with an overhead bridge crane should get a copy of “Spec 78” and make it required reading for your maintenance staff. Please consult our office for information on how to obtain “Spec 78” or any other CMAA publication.
