Why is American Aerial Services the first choice for crane rentals and steel erecting projects alike? Read on to see how we became an industry leader in the New England area.
We were founded by Jim Read more than two decades ago. We’ve spent the time since earning our place among the premier steel erecting companies in the Northeast. Each of our employees is vetted, trained, and drug tested so we can ensure quality workmanship, integrity, and customer satisfaction.
While our people and equipment are most often found in Portland and Falmouth, ME, we go where we’re needed most. If you’re located outside the greater Portland area and need our combination of equipment and expertise, get in touch!
We offer a wide range of services to our customers.
Railings ensure safety, and are vital for compliance with OSHA regulations and your insurance policies alike. Because those railings are often in client-facing areas, we ensure they’re as attractive as they are safe, whether we’re installing rails for a ramp, a pedestrian walkway, or a stairway. Other available installations include rails made of cord or galvanized cable, or custom stringers.
Whether you need diamond tread stairs for added traction, or the versatility of pan and tread stairs, we can customize your project to your budget and needs by working in conjunction with your steel fabricator. We’re well-versed in regulatory, industry, and local code requirements, and have worked with renovations, refits, and new construction alike.
Steel installation is time and resource intensive, with practically no room for error. We take time to understand the scope of your project and to plan carefully alongside your general contractor, fabricators, and other stakeholders, figuring out everything from a site survey to raw materials and equipment needed, delivery schedules, working time, and — finally — the installation itself.
A similar process takes place when you contact American Aerial Services for crane rentals. We begin by evaluating your needs and your job site, the better to recommend the proper equipment and mitigate against any potential hazards. We will further identify the rigging needed, order in any necessary extras, and educate your team about their roles and responsibilities while our work is taking place.
Our available crane rentals include:
American Aerial Services is known for quality workmanship and fair prices. For property owners and managers, general contractors, and anyone else needing our services in Maine, we’re not just an option; we’re the best option.
We know this not just because of the history we have, or the range of services we offer. We’re confident in our services because we’re confident in our people, who bring years’ worth of experience backed by rigorous certifications.
Our operators are certified under the CCO Mobile Crane Operator certification program offered through the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). This industry-developed program requires medical evaluation, written and practical exams, training in ethics, and compliance with NCCCO drug policy (which is one reason among many that our team is drug tested).
Another important layer of training comes from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). AISC certification requires the development of QA and safety policies, a compliant training program, and safety training on a range of topics that includes PPE and fall protection. Our certification is maintained by passing frequent audits of our performance, procedures, and continuing education.
American Aerial Services offers people, services, and quality you can rely on, all at competitive rates. Give us a call to talk about your next building project or crane rental.
