Blue Hat Crane celebrates new relationship with Tadano and larger headquarters

Blue Hat Crane of Kansas City, MO has a lot to celebrate for 2015. The crane sales and rental company was made a representative for all Tadano products and have acquired a ATF 180G-5, GR-1000XL, and GR-750XL for their fleet.

“Blue Hat will be a key player in growing Tadano’s market share in Missouri and Kansas,“ stated Jay Shiffler, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Customer Service for Tadano America. “We’re glad to have a committed partner that will serve our customers and products well.“

Changing needs also led the company to build a new 22 acre facility with a 60,000 square foot maintenance shop and warehouse. At their June open house event, Blue Hat displayed a number of cranes available for rent or sale including the newest Tadano additions to their fleet.

“Our new equipment acquisitions have enabled Blue Hat to expand both our bare rental and operated and maintained fleets, “ remarked David Lapin, sales representative for Blue Hat Crane. “The new crane shop is part of our commitment to supplying the latest equipment, parts and service available in the industry.“

At the open house event, Tadano America gave Blue Hat a traditional warrior’s kabuto helmet. “We‘ve had to fight battles daily to bring our company to this point,“ remarked Florian Rothbrust, Senior Vice President for Blue Hat Crane. “The helmet will bring us luck and victory!“
