Spring 2013 Issue

Win Tiger Tickets

In honor of baseball season, the team at JJ Curran Crane is having a contest to see who can guess the combined weight of the two Tigers perched atop the scoreboard at Comerica Park. You may recall JJ Curran was part of the team last spring that dismantled the old scoreboard and helped place the new and much larger state-of-the-art LED digital sign. Any guesses on how much the two iconic tigers weigh? (We know because we placed them there!)

Send us an email to marketing@jjcurran.com with your guess by May 29 and the lucky winner will receive 4 tickets to an upcoming Detroit Tiger’s game courtesy of JJ Curran Crane. (Winner will be notified by June 5.)

Good luck and Go Tigers!

Larry Curran elected to SC&RA Crane & Rigging Group Board

JJ Curran Company has been involved with the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) for more than 35 years. During that time, both Larry Curran and his wife Linda have played active roles within the organization. That involvement will continue with the news that Larry has been elected vice chairman of the Crane & Rigging Group of SC&RA for 2013-14. This position will lead to the chairman position the following year.

“We have truly enjoyed our affiliation with SC&RA over the years and I am honored to be elected to this new position,” said Curran. “This association continues to lead the way in our industry and we all benefit from the good work they do on our behalf.”

Historic Lift Makes Front Page

A recent lift performed by the team at JJ Curran made the front page of the April 2013 issue of Michigan Contractor & Builder (MC&B). It references the historic water tower that JJ Curran moved from the famous Dalgleish Cadillac to make room for Wayne State University’s new $93 million biomedical research center. The story highlights the collaboration between several partners to help repurpose the water tower. It is a great example of how contractors in Detroit can do their part to help our city rebuild and reinvent itself for the future. Check out the story for all the details on the lift and how the tower will get a new beginning in its new location in the city.
