Curnutte announces retirement from Link-Belt Cranes
Link-Belt Cranes’ product manager of telescopic truck and all-terrain cranes, Rick Curnutte has announced his retirement, effective April 1, 2019 after 31 years with the company.
Curnutte joined Link-Belt as an associate design engineer in 1987 following his graduation from the University of Kentucky with a degree in mechanical engineering. He was heavily involved with what became the industry leading HTC-8670 project and also contributed significantly to RTC projects of that era.
In 1996, Curnutte transitioned to product marketing, taking on the role of product marketing specialist for Hydraulic Truck Cranes, and becoming marketing manager of all on-highway products in 2004.
As the product manager for on-highway crane groups, Rick helped set the course for Link-Belt’s entry into the ATC product segment, with the development of Link-Belt’s own ATC product line.
Curnutte has been active in Association of Equipment Manufacturer’s Statistics Committee since joining in 2008 and serving as Statistics Chairman since 2013.
“Rick can leave Link-Belt knowing that he has made contributions that will be integral to the continued success of Link-Belt Cranes for a long time to come,” Pat Collins, director of product marketing at Link-Belt Cranes.
Link-Belt Cranes, with headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky, is a leader in the design and manufacture of telescopic boom and lattice boom cranes for the construction industry worldwide. Complete crane specifications are available at www.linkbelt.com.
