Nimble Crane Shines Light on Autism Awareness Month with Crane Wrap

ODESSA, TX — April is Autism Awareness Month, and Nimble Crane is preparing to launch a newly adorned Grove GMK5150L All-Terrain Crane with a vibrant wrap designed to draw attention to the cause. The initiative reflects Nimble Crane’s commitment to addressing important issues for both oilfield members and the broader Odessa, Texas, community.

Nimble Crane began advocating for autism awareness when Vice President of Business Josh Robbins, a close friend of a parent with an autistic child, took the lead. For many years now, Robbins has been a voice for the cause and uses his love for softball to raise awareness. Nimble Crane’s workforce also includes individuals with autistic children.

“We intend to use our platform to shine light on autism awareness while addressing other relevant social topics within our community, driving meaningful change,” said Ben Ellis, Nimble Crane’s President. “We are proud of this initiative, and it will mark the first time one of our cranes will serve as an ambassador for autism awareness to both the oilfield and community that supports us.”

While the company has promoted autism awareness in recent years, this is the first time one of its most active cranes will emblazon the colorful wrap. In April, Nimble Crane plans to share photos of the crane on its website and social media platforms along with information on the company’s initiatives aimed at raising funds for autism awareness.

Nimble Crane routinely engages in flag-flying ceremonies to support various community charities. They currently own a Grove GMK7550 Crane equipped with a wrap that represents a tribute to veterans, launched on Veterans Day in 2023.

“Our veterans’ wrap hit home for numerous people in our company and community,” Ellis said. “Our goal is to launch a newly wrapped GMK on a social topic that is paramount to us and the community every time we purchase a new Grove. We have three more that we plan on launching in the future.”
