Matt Beck, CEO of Alberta-based Masco Crane & Hoist, has no question that his company’s increases in demand are definitely tied to an industry: Alberta’s booming oil industry.

“We have a huge amount of oil here in Alberta due to the oilsands and that’s feeding our manufacturing industries with the creation of new technologies and the increase in facilities,” Beck said. “More buildings are being built to meet the needs of industry.

With that, there has definitely been an increase in the demand for overhead cranes.”
