Based in Reggio Emilia in northern Italy and with a branch in San Francisco, Calif., ENG Cranes has been designing and manufacturing their line of tower cranes, winches as well as custom solutions since 1981. With luffers ranging from eight to 20 ton and flat-top hammerheads ranging from four to 40 ton, ENG Cranes have equipment erected all over Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America, including British Columbia and Nova Scotia. The first ETL253 20 ton luffer and EDKH185 25 ton derrick are set to be erected in Toronto, Ontario in Fall 2020.

“We worked with ENG Cranes’ designers and engineers to assist in developing standards for any crane coming to Ontario—whether it’s a luffer or a hammerhead,” said Ricky Redigonda, president of Concrane Sales. “The cranes must be able to move fast and be powerful enough for our high-rise buildings. They must also be able to withstand our winter weather and, most importantly, the cranes must be safe. ENG Cranes have taken all of our recommendations and have developed equipment we’re really excited to have in Toronto.”

“I’ve been working with Ricky for over 20 years,” said Massimo De Lazzero, ENG Cranes export manager. “With his experience and the relationship I have built with him and now his grandson Daniel (Wright), it just made sense for Concrane Sales to represent ENG CRANES in Ontario, Canada.”

De Lazzero continued, “We took the time to understand the challenges the Ontario construction market is currently facing through the guidance of Ricky and Daniel, as well as our own experience. We’re confident we have developed the right equipment to tackle the harsh weather conditions and long working hours typical to jobsites in Ontario.”
