Liebherr Deliver 15 New Cranes to Bay Ltd in Texas
Bay Ltd., one of the largest privately owned crane companies in the United States, took delivery of 15 new Liebherr cranes in 2020 adding to the 45 Liebherr cranes already in their fleet. The Bay Ltd. legacy began over 65 years ago when Mr. Marvin L. Berry founded the family-owned Berry Contracting, Inc. in 1953. Based out of Corpus Christi, Texas and operating in five states Bay Ltd prides itself on being one of the most trusted names in the business.
The large order for Bay Ltd. consisted of 15 all-terrain cranes ranging from 60-600 ton capacity. Bay Ltd is familiar with the high performance and reliability that comes with owning 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 (LTR) crawler cranes. The decision to purchase their latest order of cranes 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 a better option when making lifts on their job site. This led to the company’s initial 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.
As one of the largest full-service multi-discipline construction, fabrication and maintenance contractors in the United States, Bay Ltd has pooled the diverse talents of each team member to offer clients real solutions for the most challenging construction projects.
