Bigge Opens New 25-Acre Yard and Crane Maintenance Facility in Houston

Mar. 3, 20201 – Bigge Crane & Rigging has opened its new Gulf Coast facility in Houston, Texas.

The 25-acre yard at 8300 McHard Road includes a 130,000-sq.-ft. shop. Bigge says it’s the largest crane maintenance facility in the Gulf region.

Its highlights:

  • 130,000-square-foot shop

  • 12 overhead cranes, ranging from 10 to 30 tons

  • 35 high-tech workstation bays

  • 20,000 sq. ft. of sand blasting and painting space

  • 10,000 sq. ft. of newly renovated office space

Bigge invested five years finding and acquiring the site, and designing and constructing the building to provide its customers with the best equipment and service.

For over 100 years, Bigge has been deeply committed to providing customers with exceptional value and the highest quality crane service by investing in its people, the Perfect Fleet, state-of-the-art maintenance facilities, and innovative technology, said a Bigge news release.

“You can’t maintain the Perfect Fleet without the perfect facility,” said Bigge president and CEO Weston Settlemier. “Our investment into this state-of-the-art Gulf Coast crane facility is yet another example of our commitment to providing the best service level in the industry.”

Bigge welcomes a visit from anyone who is interested in crane rental, an equipment sale, or just wants to check out the new facility. Anyone who’d like to request a private tour can do it on the company's website.
