USA-based Bigge Crane and Rigging has opened a maintenance facility in Houston, Texas.

The crane maintenance facility features a 130,000 sq ft (12,077 sq m) shop set on 25 acres (10.1 ha), as well as 12 overhead cranes ranging in capacity from 10-30 tons (9.1-27.2 tonnes), and 10,000 sq ft (929 sq m) of office space.

According to Bigge, the facility is the largest crane maintenance facility on the US Gulf Coast.
