Lennon Crane Named Tadano Distributor for Washington and Oregon


Aug. 16, 2023 - Tadano America has added Lennon Crane as a distributor for Washington and Oregon.

Based in Monroe, Washington, Lennon Crane has been owned and operated by the Lennon family since 1975.

Its core business is full-service bare rental and direct B2B bare rental of rough terrain and telescopic-boom crawler cranes in the Pacific Northwest.

Gordon Lennon, president of Lennon Crane, is excited about the Tadano partnership. “I’ve been in the crane business for almost 50 years and have bought, sold, and rented cranes around the world,” he said. “Over the years, we have owned about every crane brand out there, including a few brands that have been forgotten. I’ve become a true believer in the Tadano brand for its quality and reliability. We plan to continue to grow our fleet and resources with Tadano as a partner.”

Tadano America Regional Business Manager Justin Andrews welcomed Lennon Crane to the Tadano distributor family.

“We look forward to working with the Lennon Crane team to help grow both of our businesses,” Andrews said. "Our existing and new Tadano customers in Washington and Oregon will benefit from this expansion in our distributor network. Our mutual commitment to customer service brings significant value to those markets and customers.”

Scott Lennon, vice president of Lennon Crane, described the Tadano customer experience. “Lennon Crane has been an owner and advocate of the Tadano brand for many years,” he said. “From an ownership standpoint, I honestly believe the assembly line quality control, product reliability, and overall ‘up time’ of Tadano is unmatched in the industry.” 

Lennon added, “Our rough terrain rental fleet is now 100% Tadano. When you send a Tadano to a remote location on an 8- to 12-month rental and hear little to nothing from the operator, that’s a good thing for our business.” 

Lennon noted that customers are impressed with the Tadano brand, and that Lennon Crane looks forward to offering new Tadano cranes throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as to providing local parts and service support.
