Bay Ltd. Takes Delivery of 15 New Liebherr All-Terrain Cranes

Dec. 22, 2020 – Bay Ltd. has taken delivery of 15 new Liebherr cranes, adding to the 45 Liebherrs already in its fleet.

Headquartered in Corpus Christi, Texas, Bay Ltd. operates in five states and is one of the largest privately owned crane companies in the United States.

The large order for Bay Ltd. consisted of 15 all-terrain cranes ranging from 60- to 600-ton capacity.

Bay Ltd. is familiar with the high performance and reliability of Liebherr cranes. The company already owned 45 Liebherr cranes ranging from an LTM 1050-3.1 to an LTM 11200-9.1, an LR 1600.2 lattice boom crawler crane, and two Liebherr telescopic-boom crawler cranes.

The decision to place their latest order was based on Liebherr’s reputation as a leader in the industry. “We chose Liebherr due to the reliability of their equipment, life span of the equipment, and quality customer service,” said Berry Peterson, vice president of equipment service for Bay Ltd.

“The crane techs at Bay rely heavily on the detailed training Liebherr is able to provide. That combined with the service department and parts availability gives them a head up when Bay is looking to source additional cranes for the fleet,” said Peterson. “No other crane manufacturer has provided Bay Ltd. with the quality we get from the Liebherr product. It is because of the support and response Bay receives from Liebherr that we ordered an additional 15 all-terrain units. We are proud to say that we will have 60 Liebherr cranes in our fleet.”

Ten years ago, Bay Ltd. became more familiar with hydraulic mobile cranes built in Europe. The company recognized a need for a more mobile type of hydraulic crane to provide customers an  option. That led to Bay’s first purchase of 15.

Liebherr cranes including a LTM 1400-7.1 in 2012. The LTM 1400-7.1 became the catalyst that led Bay LTD to become the heavy lifting and hauling company they are today. “It was by far the largest hydraulic crane in our fleet and helped pave the way to many more large AT cranes,” said Peterson.
