This latest addition follows Mollitiam Holdings’ recent strategic investment in the company, acquiring a majority ownership stake.

“With the addition of the LR 1400, we have now added five new cranes to our fleet during the past 12 months and have almost doubled our total lifting capacity,” said Chris Burke, general manager of Extreme Crane & Rigging.

“The decision to make this significant investment reflects our commitment to our customers to provide a complete solution to their lifting needs. With the addition of our new investor group, we plan to make additional fleet investments in 2023 as we continue to pursue our goal of becoming a leading provider of crane and rigging services in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.”

Extreme Crane, founded by Kevin Rodney in 2014, provides crane, rigging, heavy hauling, and logistic solutions to customers in Virginia, DC, Maryland, and parts of West Virginia in the USA.
