ALL Crane Affiliate Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental Recognized for Outstanding Safety Record with Multiple Awards at SC&RA 2013 Annual Conference
June 20, 2013--Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, Inc., a member of the ALL Erection & Crane Rental Family of Companies, was honored with several awards by the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) at the association's Annual Conference in April.
Based in Wisconsin since 1947 and one of the seven founding members of SC&RA, Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, Inc. was recognized with the SC&RA 65-Year Longevity Award. The Wisconsin company that was the forerunner of Dawes ranked among the top specialized carriers and rigging companies for trade shows, and was also a leading heavy machinery mover for foundries, tanneries, breweries, and tool and die industry. Today, Dawes is an industry leader in crane rental and sales and has been a member of the ALL Erection & Crane Rental Family of Companies since 1978. From its four Wisconsin locations, Dawes provides superior crane rental, sales, and service throughout the Midwest.
Six Dawes crane operators won the Crane Operator Safety Award (completed 10,000 man hours without injury or illness). The honorees were Darren Alsum, Danne Bubolz, Steven Gust, Jerry Knutson, Scott LaMay, and Dennis Reinke. Beth O'Quinn, SC&RA Vice President, said, "Accumulating such a safety record is an impressive accomplishment and is deserving of industry recognition. This milestone is indicative of company and individual commitment to safety."
Dawes' 48-state authority trucking division, DST, earned two safety awards: the Transportation Group Zero Accidents Award and the 2013 Transportation Safety Contest Winner Award. "The SC&RA Awards program recognizes the commitment your company has to the industry and to its employees," said Douglas Ball, SC&RA Vice President, Transportation. "These are awards to be truly proud of."
Dawes' General Manager, Steve Freckmann, says, "We are honored by SC&RA's recognition of our safety efforts. We congratulate our employees and thank them for their dedication to the safe operation of their machines and their unwavering support of our corporate safety program."
