Street Crane of the UK has signed up its eleventh North American distributor, Masco Steel of Wetaskiwin, Canada.

Masco manufactures overhead cranes and supplies structural steelwork and machining services to businesses in Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton. Masco will now use Street’s wire rope hoists and components in its cranes.

An early Masco customer to receive Street hoists and travelling components is Calgary-based Engineered Air, which took delivery earlier in the year of six low headroom single girder cranes of 14.4m span.

Street Crane began looking for distributors in North America just two years ago and now has five in Canada and six in the USA. Managing director Andrew Pimblett said that he is still looking for more partners in the Midwest and Western states of the USA.
