Manitowoc Appoints Leavitt Cranes as Newest Potain Tower Crane Dealer in Washington and Oregon

SEATTLE, WA — Manitowoc Cranes has appointed a new Potain self-erecting crane dealer, Leavitt Cranes. The company will sell and support the cranes in Washington and Oregon, as well as providing consultation and training. The Washington-based company, a division of Pacific Northwest Company, has an extensive history of equipment sales and rentals in the region, which will enable it to leverage its customer base and years of sales, service and training experience for Potain customers.

Erick Zampini, General Manager at Leavitt Cranes, said that the company is focused on continually improving all aspects of its business, which includes adding brands that excel in offering solutions to its customers.

“We are very excited to become an official Potain self-erecting crane dealer and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” Zampini said. “Self-erecting cranes offer a lot of benefits that can boost our customers’ efficiency and productivity.”

Self-erecting cranes are gaining popularity in North America as contractors are realizing their benefits, particularly for applications such as residential homebuilding, smaller construction projects, utility work and more. Potain’s Hup and Igo ranges are changing the lifting aspect of projects not only in North America, but also across the globe.

“Potain customers expect the highest levels of service and support on the market, and we are confident that Leavitt Cranes has the kind of seasoned expertise that can make a real difference for lifting companies,” said Mike Heacock, Vice President, Sales-Tower Cranes at Manitowoc.
