When President Biden signed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill into law last month, he destined an already booming construction industry to reach new heights. With the US government’s hefty investment in civil construction, the construction industry will grow significantly in 2022 and beyond. Demand for heavy lifting and specialized transport equipment is expected to skyrocket.
Engineered Rigging Co-founders Christopher Cox and Eddy Kitchen have carefully followed these developments and acted proactively by expanding Engineered Rigging’s fleet of heavy lifting equipment. In June they announced the addition of two Enerpac Super Lift SL60 hydraulic gantries and four sling adjusters (SyncHoists) with a 370-mton capacity each. Today, they have announced the order of an Enerpac JS-500 jack-up system and are accepting rental reservations for 2022. It has a variety of civil construction applications, including bridge building and demolition, subway construction and renovations, and port construction. “Engineered Rigging is thrilled to be the first heavy lifting company in the United States to offer a jack-up system rental with 2,000 mton capacity. This synchronized lift system will meet the most demanding of our clients’ needs,” shared Kitchen.
