Tadano America has added Lennon Crane as an authorized distributor in the states of Washington and Oregon. Based in Monroe, Wash., Lennon Crane has been owned and operated by the Lennon family since 1975. Their core business is full-service bare rental and direct B2B bare rental of rough terrain and telescopic crawler cranes in the Pacific Northwest.

"I've been in the crane business for almost 50 years and have bought, sold and rented cranes around the world," said Gordon Lennon, president of Lennon Crane. "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 in North America.

"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."

"Lennon Crane has been an owner and advocate of the Tadano brand for many years," said Scott Lennon, vice president of Lennon Crane. "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. Our rough terrain rental fleet is now 100 percent 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. Our customers remain impressed with the brand, and we remain committed to our customers. We look forward to offering new Tadano's throughout the Pacific Northwest with local parts and service support."

Tadano and Lennon Crane have a solid history of serving crane customers and this new partnership will help both brands flourish throughout the Pacific Northwest.
