The company said it elected to establish its own operations in the USA, rather than appoint a franchisee, as it has done in other locations. At the beginning of November, Scott Wilkes was appointed as director of business development for MyCrane and will head up its USA operations from Houston.

Speaking on the market, MyCrane founder and ceo, Andrei Geikalo, said: “According to reports, the construction industry in the USA is expected to have expanded by 4.5 percent in real terms in 2022, supported by investments in transport, renewable energy, water, and housing projects. [As] one of the biggest markets for construction spend and a leader in digitalisation, the USA is a territory where MyCrane simply has to be present.”
