The Association recognized Maxim Crane Works, L.P. for a number of green initiatives, including:

  • The development of third party, certified, spill-prevention control and countermeasure plans at all company locations throughout the United States
  • Fleet upgrades that result in operations averaging 43 percent lower than the stringent required emission levels established by the California Air Resources Board
  • Maintenance plans that subject all company equipment to preventative inspections from 250 to 400 hour levels and computerized scheduling programs to alert the maintenance group about upcoming inspections, which target 120 key points that ensure the fleet operates at top efficiency and help eliminate leaks and other environmental concerns
  • An extensive recycling program for all waste oils, coolants, paper, wood, metal and plastics
  • A general waste management component committed to waste minimization, avoidance, segregation, recycling and reuse; waste labeling and containment; proper waste handling, storage and transport; and correct waste treatment and disposal
