Military Projects Prove North American Industries’ Cranes Are Built Army Strong
North American Industries was awarded a project to design and build a 40/5 ton crane by the Army Contracting Agency Yuma Proving Grounds (YPG). Located in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Yuma Proving Grounds is a test facility for the US Army and one of the largest military installations in the world.
Current and recent projects of YPG include tests on advanced weapon systems, the AH-64 Apache helicopter, the Stryker Combat Vehicle, and unmanned aerial systems among many other critical technologies. The 40 ton crane provided by North American Industries for YPG will be used to lift and move equipment. Part of the contract also requires removal of the existing crane at YPG and installation of the new crane North American Industries manufactured to the specifications required for the location. North American Industries regularly works with all levels of government and branches of the military, further evidence that North American Industries has a reputation for durable well-engineered material handling products.
