Allegheny Crane Rental consistently sets the bar for service in the crane industry. Considering how many things can go wrong in the course of a crane lift, this isn’t an easy thing to achieve. It means holding the entire company to a higher standard than the others. Everyone has to be ready to perform their job, without a mistake, at any moment. This doesn’t just happen by accident.
The owner, Kyrk Pyros, understands the technical difficulty that comes from running a crane company. When he bought the company 15 years ago, he realized how many challenges he would face, but that didn’t stop him. Through a can-do attitude, hard work, and a focused team, Kyrk has tripled the company’s size and risen to the top of the crane lift industry.
Over the years, Kyrk has built his own headquarters for Allegheny Crane Rental, added 25+ cranes to the fleet, and assembled a lean, efficient team for his company. The office is spectacular and a very important part of making sure the cranes go out smoothly. The addition of the cranes has expanded our capabilities and now we can take on virtually any job, especially with our 275 Ton Grove.
But this shouldn’t make such a huge difference between Allegheny Crane and its competitors should it? Many of our competitors are large national crane companies. They have the same resources and facilities we do. The difference is the team Kyrk brought together. The team is responsible for Allegheny Crane’s efficiency, safety record, prices, and the personal customer service that you won’t find anywhere else.
The first member of the team and the lift system is Jason Owens. He is the controller at Allegheny Crane and a major factor for why daily operations at the company are so smooth. When customers call us at the office to set up a lift, Jason collects the information for the job site and decides what crane will be best. Jason is a master of organization. Even when we have 10 lifts called in during just a few hours, he doesn’t fall behind or miss a single detail.
Unfortunately, you can only do so much over the phone. Allegheny Crane has built up a reputation for taking on any job, especially the difficult ones. Sometimes job sites can be riddled with obstacles and simply require an estimator to visit the site in person. This is where Allegheny Crane’s newest addition to the team, Anthony Zanetta comes in.
Anthony’s day consists of visiting job sites and figuring out solutions to messy lift plans. This takes both a practical and creative mind. Anthony isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty and you know he goes the extra mile to make sure there is nothing that might go wrong on lift day.
Anthony grew up in the Pittsburgh area and he knows his home well. He's built personal relationships with a large number of Allegheny Crane's clients. Our customers consider him the go to guy when they need a crane lift done. He takes his work very seriously and it's apparent in the results he produces.
After all the job specifications are worked out, Debbie Herrle takes over. Ms. Debbie has been with Allegheny Crane Rental for over 20 years! She has been delivering the top service available since before Kyrk even bought the company. Her role is to decide which operators go out for each job and to be sure they have everything they need to make the lift go smoothly. Ask any of our customers and they’ll tell you Ms. Debbie is the best in the business!
Most good companies in this industry have the right cranes. Most have pretty good operators. Most will tell you they have the best prices. At Allegheny Crane, we have all of that but the difference is the team. It’s why we don’t make mistakes. It’s why we use more efficient cranes than other companies. Through hard work and determination, Kyrk has led this team to become the top crane company in the tri-state area!
