Empire Crane Adds Sales Reps for New England

Baron Stack

Aug. 10, 2022 - Empire Crane Company has added two sales representatives serving New England.

Joseph (Joe) Baron and Josh Stack are now responsible for serving customers’ crane needs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Baron previously managed drivers and fulfilled customers’ other needs in the trucking industry. “Cranes are an essential sector to the ever-growing infrastructure industry. I’m excited to involve myself in an industry with such growth and technological changes, as well as the opportunity for new connections and travel opportunities,” said Baron.

Baron is the older brother of Mike Baron, Empire Crane’s salesman for western New York state.

Stack previously worked for a Rhode Island equipment manufacturer in the tree-care industry. He said, “I’m most excited to meet new customers, build relationships, and work in a different part of the tree industry and crane industry as a whole.” Stack has a business finance degree from the University of Rhode Island.

“Joe and Josh both are young and quick on their feet,” said Luke Lonergan, CEO of Empire Crane. “New England, especially, is a fast-paced market and has new jobs and opportunities arising every day. We’re confident they’ll be assets to our team and our customers.”

Supported by Empire’s team of parts professionals and service technicians, Baron and Stack represent Empire’s many manufacturers, including Tadano, Magni, Manitex, Kobelco, Broderson, and others.
