Coronavirus

With COVID-19 dominating the headlines daily, we would like to reassure you that AG Cranes Limited is closely monitoring this fast-moving event and following all available advice from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England.

As you would expect, we are taking this matter extremely seriously. Our overriding aim is to continue to support our customers and their businesses, without jeopardising the health and safety of our staff.

We have put in place plans to ensure the continuity of our service and are actively monitoring the ongoing situation. Our current assessment is that it’s business as usual, but should this change, we will update you.

Red Overhead Cranes

We usually offer our customers yellow cranes, as we find this to really stand out in most factories. However sometimes our customers will ask for a slight different colour. This one wanted their overhead cranes to be red! Below are some of them being painted in the factory and fully completed loaded to transport.

We recently donated to the Birmingham Outreach Angels homeless charity. They are a not for profit organisation that provides a weekly outreach to support the homeless & those in need in our city. They provide hot & cold drinks, food, clothing, underwear, toiletries, bedding & any other essential items. As a not for profit group they rely solely on donations & fundraising to carry out the work they do.

They had 2 tickets from us and took Sean to his second ever WBA game against Luton.

               

Sean was delighted as it was the first time he had seen the Baggies win! He was also overwhelmed by the attention he received from Albion fans.

This week, we have also given out a few more free tickets: one of the lucky winners took his Uncle Ken, who is 84 years old and has been a baggies fan his whole life.
