Crane Institute Rewind

2012 was a big year for Crane Institute of America.

This year we celebrated our 25th Anniversary.

Terry Thibodeaux and Brent Pinkerton, winners of Crane Institute's 25th Anniversary Free Training Program Contest

Our first event was in July when we offered special discounted prices on products for the whole month. We also raffled off a free Mobile Crane Operator and Rigger/Signalperson Training Program to 2 lucky winners! Congratulations to Terry Thibodeaux for winning the Rigger/Signalperson Training and Brent Pinkerton for winning the Mobile Crane Operator Training!

In the fall, we hosted the Southeast Regional Crane Operator Rodeo Event where James Anderson took home first place. If you missed it, you can watch the fun here! Also, look out for the 2013 Crane Supplemental Guide in the January Issue of the Crane & Rigging Hotline Magazine!

In December, we awarded one free Mobile Crane Operator Training program scholarship to an employee of a Florida Crane Owner’s Council (FCOC) Member. Johnathan Camp was the lucky winner! Also in December, we held our second and ¬†final anniversary promotion; since you only turn 25 once! Crane Institute gave away 3 Cranky and Flynn Fisher Price Toys to winners of our online contest: James Cox, Jessie Smith and Don Thompson! These toys were just in time for Christmas!

We hope everyone had as much fun this year as we did! Here’s to a wonderful 2012 and an even better 2013!
