October 20 - Bigge Crane and Rigging is expanding again, this time relocating its Richmond, Virginia location to a complex more than twice the size of the current yard.

Along with the new location, Bigge is increasing the size of its crane fleet. adding more than twenty rough terrain cranes and about a dozen crawler cranes with maximum lift capacities from 100 to 440 tonnes. Additional mechanics, truck drivers and inside sales personnel have also been hired to keep up with the increased demand for their services on the East Coast.

In addition to expanding the Richmond office, Bigge has recently added sales staff in Seattle, and now offers crane rental there.

In Houston, Bigge recently took delivery of several Link-Belt HC-278 truck cranes and a large crawler from the port of Galveston as the company expands into the Houston crane rental market.
