CLEVELAND, June 1, 2015—The ALL Family of Companies has announced the promotion of Joshua Bacci to the position of Crawler Crane Fleet Administrator. In this role, he will be responsible for preventive maintenance, inspections, relocating crawler parts and attachments, and coordinating the departures of crawler cranes for job sites.
“Josh has always demonstrated a willingness to learn and has never turned down a new opportunity,” said Rick Mikut, manager of ALL’s corporate crawler fleet division. “It is awesome for me to bring in young talent and pass on my knowledge. I can’t think of a more deserving individual for this position.”
Bacci has been with the company in an official capacity since 2006, when he began by cleaning carbodies. The summer following his graduation from Independence High School (Ohio), he opted to stay with the company. He obtained his commercial license and then entered the field, acting as rigger, oiler — “whatever was needed on job sites,” he said.
In his most recent role as Assistant Operations Manager, Bacci managed billing, logistical scheduling, and customer relations, and worked with NexGen, the database housing all records for ALL’s massive fleet.
“I have had the benefit — and privilege — of being exposed to a variety of talent and knowledge at ALL,” said Bacci, who has been working with crane industry veterans, several of whom have been at ALL since the company’s inception. “I’ve learned from some of the best,” he added.
He credits his father and logistics manager, John Bacci; Marc Picione, senior field technician; Leonard Kelley, trucking manager; Rick Mikut; and others. “They have been so generous with their time and experience, which has directly affected my success. In this new position, I’m able to appreciate from a different perspective what everyone does, and I look forward to learning more every day,” he said.
Bacci joins Jude Stankov in support of the crawler division.
The ALL Family of Companies has 370 crawler cranes in its fleet of more than 3,000 pieces of lift equipment. The largest capacity crawler is the Manitowoc 21000 at 1,000 USt (907 mt). ALL recently invested in 10 new Manitowoc MLC300 lattice boom crawlers (330 USt [300 mt]) with variable position counterweight technology, and took delivery of the first one last month.
