Bay Ltd. expands fleet with Liebherr all-terrain cranes

By Hannah SundermeyerJanuary 05, 2021

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.

Bay LTD uses their LTM 1400-7.1 to lift a 780,000-pound hydro cracker reactor for a local Corpus Christi refinery

The large order for Bay Ltd. consisted of 15 all-terrain cranes ranging from 60-600 ton capacity.  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 crane techs at Bay rely heavily on the detailed training Liebherr is able to provide,” said Berry Peterson, vice president of equipment service, Bay Ltd. “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. 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.”
