Allied Systems wins $70M Navy Crane Deal
Allied Systems Company has been awarded a $70 million contract to design, test and manufacture up to 37 Crash and Salvage Crane units to the US Navy for use on Aircraft Carriers (CVN) and Landing Helicopter Assault and Dock Vessels (LHA and LHD).
“We are a small veteran owned business and are honored and excited to be able to provide critical support equipment for the United States Navy. We are proud to design, test and manufacture the equipment here locally, supporting the local economy, helping create jobs and promoting American made equipment.” –Jeff Rink, President.
The units, referred to as Crash Cranes, are mobile cranes that move aircraft with mechanical failures or battle damage out of the way on the flight deck. They are critical pieces of equipment since no flight operations are allowed without an operational Crash Crane. There is a heightened priority on procuring this new design from us because it is able to support the newest F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
Allied Systems Company is a manufacturer of material handling equipment with product lines including Allied Marine Crane and Davits, Wagner Logstackers and Chipdozers, Long Reach Fork Lift Attachments, Allied Winches, and Freeman Hay Balers.
