ALL Trains Inspectors and Welders through Manitowoc Boom Inspection and Repair Training CoursesTuesday, October 14, 2008
For the second consecutive year, qualified welders and technicians from the ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Family of Companies were chosen to attend exclusive Manitowoc Crane CARE program training courses in Manitowoc Boom Inspection and Repair. Welders with state certification attended both repair and inspection training classes, and a number of other technicians attended only the inspection classes, which were held at ALL headquarters in Cleveland. The trainees came from a number of ALL yards, which are strategically dispersed throughout the country.
The ALL Family of Companies proudly makes the commitment to invest in their employees by conducting rigorous technician training programs that surpass any industry requirement. Says Michael Liptak, president of ALL Erection and Crane Rental Corp., “At ALL Crane, we believe that strengthening our technicians' training is one of the most important service standards we can offer you. Each technician takes seriously their job of maintaining the industry's newest and most modern equipment, and keeping it like new so that our rental fleet always exceeds your expectations.”
Two sessions of each class were held in August. For the welding class, Manitowoc Crane CARE, the world’s most advanced crane service and support program, shipped all of the metal stock to the ALL Erection training facility in Cleveland, Ohio, where ALL constructed a mini welding lab. The course consisted of both rigorous classroom and hands-on welding training.
With the completion of this training program, the ALL Family of Companies now has 15 individuals at various yards throughout the nation who can perform Manitowoc boom repair and 13 who can do the inspections, explains Liptak. “The welding training program and Crane CARE in general are both relatively new programs, and ALL’s proactive and ongoing commitment to training is part of our promise to customers.”
Since 1964, the ALL family of companies has grown to become one of the largest crane and equipment rental companies in North America. The company offers its fleet of cranes, aerial work platforms, boom trucks, material handlers, and other lift equipment from strategic locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, providing rental, sales, service, and jobsite analysis to help customers get the right equipment for the job. An important measure of their commitment is meeting or exceeding all pertinent regulatory and safety standards.
