When President Biden signed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill into law last month, he destined an already booming construction industry to reach new heights. Before the passing of the bill, ResearchandMarkets.com projected, “The construction industry in the United States is expected to grow by 15.6% …in 2021.” With the US government’s recent hefty investment in civil construction, the construction industry will grow significantly in 2022 and beyond.
The significant growth in the number of construction projects across the country will directly impact demand for heavy lifting and specialized transport equipment.
Engineered Rigging Co-founders Christopher Cox and Eddy Kitchen have carefully followed these developments and acted proactively by expanding Engineered Rigging’s fleet of heavy lifting equipment. In the June issue of Heavy Lifting News, they announced the addition of their rental fleet to include two Enerpac Super Lift SL60 hydraulic gantries and four sling adjusters (synchHoists) with a 370t capacity each.
Engineered Rigging is now thrilled to announce that they have ordered an Enerpac JS-500 jack-up system and are accepting rental reservations for 2022. Engineered Rigging is the first company to have this model available for rental with technical support in the United States. It has a variety of civil construction applications, including bridge building and demolition, subway construction and renovations, and port construction.
“Engineered Rigging is thrilled to be the first heavy lifting company in the United States to offer a jack-up system rental with 2,000t capacity. This synchronized lift system will meet the most demanding of our client’s needs,” shared Kitchen.
As an authorized dealer and service provider of Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology, Engineered Rigging has all models of the Enerpac J-Series of jack-up systems available for purchase and rental.
