General Crane USA, one of the largest and best known crane companies in the United States, has filed for reorganization. The news came as jobless numbers released by the federal government hit a record high of 10%.
“This economic downturn has impacted many people in our industry” says Jim Robertson, managing partner of General Crane. “Unfortunately, we were not immune,” Robertson said. The process is expected to be concluded by early 2010 and all of their lenders are both cooperative and supportive. “We’re going to take this time to learn and grow. We will be looking at how we can do what we do even better,” remarked Robertson. “One thing is for sure, we will emerge stronger and leaner and more focused on customer service than ever before,” he said.
Considering the fact that they are a pacesetter in the business, that is nothing short of impressive. In an industry where accidents seem to occur with some frequency and safety violations happen routinely, General Crane USA is in a class all its own. Recently, in Workers Compensation claims they ranked 17 points higher than the industry safety average. The company is also well known for its employee satisfaction, retention and a top ranking company with General Liability in the industry.
James (Jim) Robertson became managing partner in General Crane USA in 2002 after beginning his career with the company in 1986 with operations. Currently, he and Jason Retterath are also the Managing Members for Hunter Crane, Republic Towers and Hoist and Merchant Transport. Robertson is also recognized as the driving force behind the 2003 Worker’s Comp Reform bill which changed the face of Worker’s Compensation in the state of Florida. Although he and his wife Summer are involved in various charities, their passion is the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County.
“We aren’t going anywhere and are very optimistic about our future,” Robertson added. For more information about General Crane USA or Jim Robertson go to http://www.generalcraneusa.com or call 954-973-3030.
