“The travelling jibs are very rare over here,” said Masco vice-president Steven Beck. “They are a European design.”

Beck’s company is the Western Canadian dealer for the Street Brand Wire Rope and Chain Hoists, which will be used in Liebherr’s new manufacturing facility for both the overhead crane and travelling jibs.

Jeff Reynolds, project manager for PCL Construction, said that, while this type of project isn’t the sort his company does every day, PCL has a good working relationship with Liebherr and was more than up for the challenge.
