Official Raimondi agent Strictly Cranes erected a Raimondi topless tower 8-tonne MRT144 in West Ryde, New South Wales, Australia. The MRT144, installed in one day, is currently onsite and assisting in the build of a residential development.
“The project is an eight-floor plus ground building. This is one of our many clients under our Crane Management Program that we’ve undertaken for tower cranes that we have previously sold,” said Ramey Alkhoshaibi, founder and Commercial Director, Strictly Cranes. “In this specific case, we handled the project allocation and installation of the crane along with the commissioning and ongoing services. The MRT144 was sold to one of our very first clients in 2013, and we continue to work closely with them by helping to relocate their crane on suitable jobsites whenever it is not in use for their own projects.”
Strictly Cranes executes a Crane Management Program that allows clients to generate rental revenue from Raimondi cranes purchased in the past. The two-year old program, incredibly successful to date, bolsters growth in the local construction sector and allows heavy lifting machinery to be utilized to its full potential.
“Preventing disuse is an important factor when it comes to investing in quality heavy lifting machinery,” Alkhoshaibi added. “Once a client is finished at a jobsite and their crane needs to be decommissioned and removed off their site, they would rather have it out working and bringing in rental income than sitting in the yard. This is where we come in.”
As part of the Crane Management Program, Strictly Cranes sources jobsites for previously sold cranes and then handles the entire rental process including installation, maintenance, and dismantle.
“We consider ourselves part of the construction community here in the area, and we’re more than happy to help our clients generate return on investment through our program.” explained Alkhoshaibi. “As Raimondi’s agent in much of the country, we continue to provide parts and service to rental fleets that include the company’s tower and luffing cranes.”
Based in New South Wales, Australia, Strictly Cranes was founded in 2013 and quickly established its official agency of Italian manufacturers Raimondi Cranes and Boscaro accessories. Both companies enjoy strong on the ground visibility and jobsite prominence due to the volume of projects Strictly Cranes is engaged with across a variety of capacities.
