ALL Expands Facilities in Wisconsin and West Virginia

ALL Expands Facilities in Wisconsin and West Virginia

July 19, 2016—The ALL Family of Companies has increased both the size and service capabilities of its facilities in Elk Mound, Wisconsin, and Nitro, West Virginia.

ALL Crane & Equipment Rental Corp. of Nitro, West Virginia, is an area leader in heavy-haul trucking services and also functions as one of ALL’s major rebuild centers. The Nitro branch also specializes in repairing and maintaining ALL’s large fleet of crawler cranes—the biggest in North America.  

The Nitro facility acquired approximately 5-1/2 acres of land a mile away from their existing facility. The property includes five buildings that are being transformed to house a truck and trailer repair shop, a machine shop, a parts warehouse and office, a sandblasting and painting building, and a fabrication and welding shop. Work began last November and is expected to be completed this fall.

 “We’ll really be able to increase the level of service we provide as a result of this new space,” said Chad Shamblin, general manager at the Nitro location. “We can do complete rebuilds in-house now, and we’re adding staff to compensate for the increase in business. We are hiring skilled, experienced workers from the area who have become unemployed due to the decline in local mining jobs. So the expansion is a win for us, our customers, and the region.” 

ALL Crane & Equipment Rental Corp. in Nitro can be contacted at 304-766-0300.  An aerial video of the expansion can be viewed here

Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, Inc. in Elk Mound, Wisconsin,represents the ALL Family with full-service rigging and crane rental in western and northern Wisconsin, along with the Twin Cities area (Minnesota).

A 7-month expansion project added an impressive 14,400 square feet onto the Elk Mound facility, including three drive-through service bays: two to repair cranes and other lift equipment, and one a dedicated wash bay. The new service bays facilitate quicker turnaround on maintenance and repair jobs, which means shorter downtime for customers. The expansion also included conference/classroom space, which will become a training venue for employees and customers. (pictured)

 “Our equipment is very much in demand in this area, so any downtime has an impact on our customers’ timelines and budgets,” said Mike School, Elk Mound branch manager. “The additional space has greatly enhanced our service efficiency and processes.”
